Haha...Thanks everyone, haven't been on the computer much lately, been thrashing on the car too much lately and I finally got it back together. I put a lot of time/research into this combo and it seems to work. I made a lot of changes while it was apart and finally built the engine I wanted.

Mind you, it weighs 3418, has DOT radials and full exhaust...More importantly is what it doesn't have...Things like a power adder, race gas, a big block, rim screws, slicks/bias ply tires, transbrake, electric fuel pump, fuel regulator, electric water pump or even an aluminum mechanical pump, dominator, raised runner/non 23* heads, a magic camshaft from one of the self proclaimed internet specialists, as well as others...Need not apply!

Now for numbers...this is completely untuned and the first day out...Went 10.16 @ 129 and 60 footed a best of 1.33 looking at the sky for the first 40 feet and shifting 1-2 in the air.

Not bad for an all motor pump gas small block.

I'm focused on bracket racing right now, but stay tuned as it WILL go faster.

Bobby..nope, it's not the Monte engine :D

I like it. :cool:
What is suspension set up
HP & TQ?
What stall converter?
Up front-
AFCO bushings
Calvert shocks
Moroso springs

Out back-
Landrum 175# mono's
Cal Tracs, top hole, stop bolt just touching
QA1 single adjustables set at 6, haven't tried anything else

Converter flashes to 5400.

Horsepower doesn't mean much to me, and torque is a probably a lot. Didn't dyno it, I like timeslips instead.

Done good!

I thought you had a trans brake?

Man, it's still at 3418 with the car back halved?

That s a lot more engine than you had before!

Again! Done good!

So, has your face gone back to normal yet? I know your cheeks hurt from the smile on your face!:yes::D
