    The Hubers ran 9.30's at WFC in their Mustang stroked tall deck "2.3" and then ran 9.80's with their spare 2.3 motor the next day.

    The fastest iron headed 2.3T belongs to Bryan Hall, he was running 10.30's at WFC and made 530rwhp with it.

    Yes, Don Nase owns the Ranger...Runs 7.80's or so I believe...that's the fastest "2.3" powered vehicle out there.

    Killercomet do you work at a Mack trucks plant?

    If his name is Fred House he is a bad son of ****. I have a pic of his non turboed pinto with a 200shot and has a dial in of 9.81 on the windshield.

    WOW its been awile to reply to this but oh well..... Yes It is Fred House, He is also one of the nicest guys you could talk to. Yes he knows his stuff hes been in the game a long time. Ive seen things that he has done that other big names get around to years later.

    When he was running the Pinto on the spray, he did the math and found out per cubic inch he was injecting more N.O.S. than a Pro Mod.
