1985 Chevy Caprice coupe.....8" cylinders in the front...16" in the rear. Looking at the ProHopper LA Series as far as pumps. I need some feedback on what to use for front and rear coils, what size pump head, what size fittings and hose, and how many batteries to run?

if your talking about in the trunk thats totally up to you, if refering to how many to the pump then that depends on how heavy you are on the switch(the faster you burn a motor) and what you can make work best for you, 7-8-9 batteries,

10 batts, 3/4 block, y-block out of the ckeck into two #8 4wire hose. 4.5 tons to the front black coils. Move your spring pocket towards the ball joint. Chain the ass end down so it don't load up on you. But remember the higher you lock the back the harder it is to hop. I would make it hit bumper at about 50. Do what I tell you and it will hit bumper all day.

He just said a whole lot about splitting a belly, at least enough to get you started. I wonder if anyone else got it

Splitting the belly doesn't move the pocket in the lower a-arm. He just said move the pocket which isn't splitting the belly.
