hi there i have a problem of the fumes leaking into the car it can sometime almost burns ur eyes and give u a headache, i have a 2 barrel on a 202 with a open air filter, it differs from petrol smell to exhaust i have had the petrol pump tightened and its got a new gasket but the smell remains the pollution is still connected, how or could i stop the smells entering the car? would i need to get all new door/boot seals?

Wheel spin or stall.

G'day,
I run a warm 202 in my VC - VH i have just removed and replaced the top end as a result my engine wants to stall or simply create wheel spin it doesnt require a great deal of rpm to create loss of traction. my idle is set at around 1500 rpm any lower it will not idle. I have a sneaking suspicion that the cam is also a little too big for the set up i run ( as the car almost moves sideways during idle lol ).......any ideas ?

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I WROTE THIS HERE .......
