    Damn, man, that's awesome! I was always suspect that your combo was worth more than 400. Now I want to see you have it back at the track, you'll be murdering those 10s!

    I forget, are you running the long runner R, or the box?

    Yea i definitley thought the motor was making more power than the chassis dyno suggested but i wouldnt have thought it was making this much, im going to be at the track saturday and im also going on april 27th for a rental so i should be able to get a ton of runs that day.

    BTW these dyno numbers were after i drover the car 20 minutes and hit some traffic on the way there, the car had some heat in it which is what i wanted, i wanted the numbers to be as consistent with when i drive the car to the track as possible

    The car has the box R on it. Id actually like to try the regular R upper again, i really dont think the box helped at all, but i changed a couple things when i swapped the box onto it so its hard to say if it helped or hurt

    Shop is growing which is good, but that takes time away from mine. Although I do plan to have it back on the street by summer...yes just your normal 25.5 chassis, 32v, turbo'd to hell and back 91 GT....man I cant wait it's been way too long.

    Figured id update this... Well, after feeling like the car was pretty dialed in on motor, i got off my ass and wired the window switch for the nitrous. The car has a 150 shot in it. The first pass i made on the juice it went 10.05 at 135mph on a pretty hot and humid day. Then the bottle ran out the next pass. So i went back to the track two weeks later, on a much cooler day, no humidity, with 2 full bottles this time. First pass went 10.20 at 136mph. The pass was ugly and violent. Pulled the wheels up pretty good, then unloaded the tires, then i got out of the gas, and then when i got back into it, it pulled the tires up again, then when i shifted 2nd, it did another little wheelie. The car stayed straight the whole time so it didnt feel like the pass was that bad in the car until i watched the video. The second pass of the day i added 2psi in the slicks and moved the front struts two clicks tighter. The pass felt very smooth, but something didnt feel right so at about 1100 feet i let the car coast thru the traps. I still went a 9.93 at 131mph. I was pretty pumped about this.

    So the next pass i went up, and tried to leave a bit harder, and the car went mid 10's at 128 mph. I was out of nitrous at about 100 feet. The good news though, the car launched perfect, best pass ive ever made in the car. Including a new personal best 1.39 sixty foot. At this point i was pretty excited... I put the fresh bottle in and went out loaded for bear. Tried launching the car at about 6000rpms on the spray, and i found a soft spot in the driveline..............

    All in all, it was a successful day. I ran my first 9 second pass, and came home happy despite breaking the eaton posi into 100 pieces. The car is getting some 33 spline axles and a spool next

    Guess that was your weakest link. Rebuild then go back for more.

    Doh! 9s FTW, though! That's awesome!

    Edit- what ever happened to your big-inch Windsor plans?

    So I see your going to build something bigger. What will you use for a trans? I see that is for sale. How do you like the megasquirt? I would almost consider buying your fuel system if some just wants the engine.

    My plan is to use my transmisson if i dont sell it. If i do i will probably end up with a faceplated TKO600, or a T56 if i can find a deal. The megasquirt is great, although, i may go with holley EFI for the new motor, or MS3X, i havent decieded yet. Also, my fuel system is pretty basic. 255 in the tank, 255 external, and stock lines to the stock fuel rails.
