It's a 330 all right. It's got the silver gauge rings, etc.

ZHP 6 speed coupes don't exactly grow on trees, either.

Free bump for a great looking car that shows pride of ownership.

Gear selector rod joint bushing. It's a foam "plastic" disc that sits in the bottom of the rod joint. It loses its mojo after a few years. Once it flattens out, forget about shifter precision.

See my post above with all the numbers. A 3.38 with a 5 speed gets you at 6800RPM and a bit more. You'd need a Shark tune or a more aggressive tune to hit 60 mph in second.

EMP/Stewart claims 20% better flow. I think it's a good option if you have or plan to have underdrive pulleys since they drop water pump rotation speed by 10%. A Stewart pump combined...
