Im pretty sure theres a vid on Youtube of an Ultima with almost the exact same time and speed but over 1000m, instead of the Vettes mile, but with around 820-840bhp. Twin turbocharged aswell.

Yeah, the Ultima is a lot lighter I think and with better suspension I think. The Vette is heavier than Showroom weight, full of all the options!

Define normal?
Carbs have more soul than EFi.
However, relying on points and bob weights when your putting a 200 shot of gas into your engine is asking for trouble.

I may be a prat, but i'm not a complete prat!!! :cool:

normal as in what production cars use. all controlled by one ECU. but i guess if your buying packs and what not then your bound to be able to get seperate ignition and fueling systems.

i dont see what the big issue is, just go electronic!

Its more to go wrong mate.
I can't be arsed farting around with a laptop making new maps each time I want to change something.
I just want a big dial on the dash so I can play with my ignition timing from there.

Real (ok, ancient...) cars have the fuelling and ignition completely separate...

Hence, on my VW camper, I turn one screw to adjust the fuel/air mixture. One screw to adjust the idle speed. Loosen 3 screws to adjust the choke.

Then, to adjust the ignition timing I undo one bolt and rotate the distributor

It may not be modern technology, but it is good for 30mpg which is better than many modern petrol powered people carriers
