the crash studs shouldn't have rubber on them, they probably wouldn't touch hood anyway if set at correct height, those are simply the cowl bumpers

Ok, my crash studs DO NOT  have a rubber cover and I don't remember them ever being there. Had the car since new.
Where to purchase the rubber covers?  Thanks!

a mild roller cam, out of the box E-heads, 455 will make 500+hp and about 600Trq.

why recondition the old cast rods? new forged rods are available for about the same cost, spring $1000 on roller cam set up but skimp on the rods!!

Now I'm not 100% sure this would be a problem in THIS application but he better pull the valley pan back off to make sure the roller lifter tie bars are not hitting the underside of the valley pan because it MUST be checked on a Pontiac and it's not because a " buddy" did it and was fine (or was he?) does not mean another will be fine, lobe lift and base circle diameter will play a roll as well as lifter design.

Wow, that's a nice option to run a shaker.

For $1,200+, it better be able to cook me dinner!

Interesting thread. I assume this is about D port heads and not round port.

I trial fit the cheap new Hookers I have and they do not fit with the auto reverse light linkage but one tube could be modified fairly easily. The Tribal D port tri ys look like a good fit-both of those are for sale.

For round port heads I have 4 sets of Hooker Super Comps 2 sets fit great the other two have the same issue hit the oil filter. So even headers same manufacturer same part number can be different. The fit the reverse light/column lock linkage fine. The Hedman 1 3/4 round port headers were a terrible fit. Both sides the rear tubes hit the firewall bad! Collectors did not go straight back, they hit the column lock linkage. Sent them back to Hedman-"they fit our jig you must have moved the engine back!".I really needed the tube size so we cut off two tubes each side and re engineered them and new straighter collectors and could even get to every bolt! The Hedman custom step headers made off the 1 7/8 pattern fit but they had collectors that prevented a tranny from bolting up -they fixed those.

Point is even the same exact header part number may be made different and even the big guys screw up stuff.

Point taken and yes these are for D port.  I guess we will see how they fit when they get here.  A little bit of info:  I have the subframe 6 feet in front of the car right now.  Even like that, the oil filter still needs to come off to get the passenger header off.

BTW, my gawd that's a lot of headers just laying around.  All for the same vehicle?

So aside from all this, tonight we pulled the 2004r out of the womans wagon for the FINAL time.  It gets sent off for rebuild next week.  It will be a weight off my shoulders to have that thing running.  That and with the Firebird hopefully selling soon, I won't feel so inclined to be constantly wrenching.  Not that that's a bad thing, but I do have other things I want to get done lol.

After posting vague requests in different sections which all have new replies, do you want a 78 or 79 diagram? You also have a PM. Otherwise do what the rest do, buy one. Then you can scan and share it when others then ask the same question.

I’m sure the injectors on this can be upgraded.  Almost all TBI’s like this use the 4 Bosch short injectors.  There is a 210lb injector in which you can make substantial power with.  Holley sells them.
Needs more CFM flow also!

What’s the CFM listed for the Q-jet Sniper? 

If it has the same throttle bore as a whet, it will outflow a carb due to not having venturies.
