Well hey, atleast we aren't asking you to take down the ceiling-mounted mirror or anything else...but I do like your style and the fact you draw a line with your priorities :w00t:
Ya, I will do almost anything for my M, but I gotta draw a line somewhere  :biggrin:

It is the Holley 750 #3310 that Mopar Performance recommends with this crate motor.

I now have a few thousand miles on the new MP Magnum 360, and the same exact thing happened with this one as the one I installed in my '85 several years ago. For the first several hundred miles, it almost seemed like what I would call a "dog". You could feel added torque a bit, but it nothing impressive. Then, somewhere around maybe 1500 miles, it really started waking up. Now, holy cow it is fast, and I still have the 2.94 gears. Just cruising at around 40mph and giving it a little gas, you can see and feel the front end lift and it pulls sooooo strong. These really are impressive engines for the money IMO, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking who can find a nos one and doesn't have the tools, facilities, and/or desire to build their own (I just saw another on craigslist a few months back for around 3K, which is what I paid for mine).

I know a engine is supposed to gain power as it breaks in, but I didn't think it was normally so drastic of an increase, but I am not complaining! I love it.

Yeah, have to admit a warmed-over 360 seems to be a great all-around motor for these cars. Thats why I have one in the garage...not a Magnum, but it is a roller cam version from 1990.

I had an edelbrock on my first 360 that I (meaning my mechanic) couldn't get adjusted right. I finally gave up and got another carb. Frustrating, but it took care of the bogging problem I had.

Probably have to get the real adjustment out. It's not all just turn bolts, but most of it is.
