Old school vs tech

The first real engine I built was a 350, of course, with a little bit of my invention, see, I had this 1970 Camaro RS That me and my brother brought back from the afterlife, it was looking pretty good, but after a 1/4 mile testing, it was an embarrassment, 17 seconds, that really is an eternity, so more wrenching was required, and I found this 86 Corvette that was in a fire, so intense the whole injection was melted, but the engine was rebuildable.....It was then when I heard,... you can't use that block on a regular Chevy manifold....... I don't like it when I hear that kind of language,.....Months later, with a little bit of old school mixed with a little technology my 1/4 mile was much faster and my car was on the cover of Hot Rod Magazine.

Over the last decade and a half, we have been building and upgrading air cooled Porsches, but I have stayed away from the engine room, the boss in in charge of that kitchen, where old dishes are being prepared with new ingredients, and when this main course is served I may ask for the recipe, after all, I am the one decorating it.
This chef's specialty will be served with external boost controllers, coil on plugs and a side of turbo technology..........  bon appetite.
