FooBar, Here are the pictures you requested. Getting these pictures on the web was a bit of a pain, mainly because I have been "Oscar The Grouch" for the best part of the day. http://needsprayer.freeservers.com/photo.html As you can see I replaced the choke plate with a plate long enough to reach from the slide to the air boot. It greatly improved my starting. I did this before the airbox mod, so I know the effect is attributed to the modified plate. The airbox mod helps with the smoothness of the top end. I didn't notice it until I looked down at my speedometer. I didn't realize how fast I was going because the engine felt so smooth @ 70mph in 4th gear. Hope you enjoy the pics.
