95 Firebird, Budget drag car

so, been a while. picked up a 95 firebird formula from wildwood last year, turned it into a non street track only budget drag build. slowly derailing from the budget. Picked up that 385 LT1 that has been sitting dormant for some years on this forum, and here we are now.

bores looked clear, otherwise i probably wouldnt have purchased. cant afford to rebuild something right now.

it actually idled pretty well with just the injector constant changed and the cyl volume corrected. These were 32lb injectors right?
