Well after a long *** time I finally drove the car (just out of my coldesac(sp)) and it felt great Nothing like the POS 86 Nova I have been driving since early last year.



I am still having some problems with my motor. It is idling around 2,000RPM, I figure it's a vacuum leak, still have to find it. And it is smoking a little bit, is that common for a rebuild? I still need to bleed or replace the clutch hydraulics, but it is getting really close.

Mine's got about 3500 miles on it and it still smokes sometimes when I start it up cold. It might be the premix, or it might be the hard driving the day before causing oil to blow into the intake manifold.
