I recently snagged a good buy on a 67 Fasty. Catch was the motor was seized when the previous owner forgot to check his oil before he hit the highway. Along with the car all the brand new parts for the rebuild back to stock (or just a bit better than).

I am considering going away from the C13-98-1356-B - EMPI I already obtained.

Can anyone direct me to an upgrade? I would prefer to buy out of Canada to keep the hurdles to a minimum but not a deal breaker.

Thanks for your help and input. I'm not mechanically knowledgeable so dumb it down for me Very Happy

Any photos of the vehicle? I cannot say about the quality of Empi products. Does the vehicle have the stock dual solex carb set up? I get the purchase in Canada thing. What is your definition of (or just a bit better than).

Actually 67 was the first year for dual port heads on a type 3.
