    Hey y'all, new to the forum, I just bought a 95 sierra z71. Love it. It has a few problems that I am working on, but thats why I bought it. its got the 5.7 in it,(By the way, is the 5.7 a 305 or a 350?) its ok, but want some more horse power out of it. The truck is pretty stock, but not for loing. When I lay my foot in it, the exhaust has a tarnish smell to it, and when I was trying to figure it out, I had it in park, reved the motor up, kept my foot steady, but the fuel cycled, almsot like the compouter was shutting the fuel off then open it up again. Anyone got any clues on that?
    It's got a 2barrel carb and a k&N air flow system. I would like to change the carb out to a 4 barell and increase the intake and exhaust.
    Then after its runniong right, I want to put a different set of wheels and tires on it. Then I will start on the paint job. Think my GF is gonna kill me, but its all in fun and enjoyment.
    Later y'all
