NICE! Is that a stock 260 crate with that blower? What's your ignition and fuel setup for that? Also how much power is that putting out?

Great car and nice job on the combo, get a small hp crate engine and then squeeze the rest of the power out of it! Like the wheels too.

thanks guys for the nice words,and yes its a stock 260hp motor even still has the 383/401 lift cam in it.ignition is a HEI super coil & summit hot box.the fuel pump is a holley 7psi mech pump.the blower only adds about 60-70hp. it ran 14.50s last fri night.i'am also taking on the power tour next week about 2500 mile round trip. it's not fast but it is a blast to drive.
