Alright, this build/thread has been a LONG time in the making. Broke another piston back in December at the track. Seemed to be the result of too much cylinder pressure. Silver lining was that the car made the best pass ever on the very run it broke, at 11.90 @ 114. <<Notice how trap is a little low for my car. More on that later. So instead of doing a cheap rebuild, selling the car, and buying and '03 Cobra (like I SHOULD have done), I decided to have a little fun with this build, and see how far I could take the SVO blower (current record is 11.49 @ 118). To do that, here's what I'm doing on this build: -2012 Boss 302 rods -03/04 Cobra pistons -stock crank -ported heads by me -MHS blower cams (already been running those, but will be advancing them a couple degrees) -2.9" blower pulley (vs. 3.3 I have now). Should add 3-4 pounds of boost. -AEM 320 fuel pump to fuel all this extra power. On top of that, the transmission is getting a full build as well. As I mentioned earlier as per the trap speeds, it seemed like either the transmission or converter was slipping recently, so I figured with the rebuild and extra power, it'd sure be foolish not to rebuild the transmission to hold all of that. So Mr. Robert Pearson here in NC is doing a '650 rwhp build' on my transmission (same parts as in his 9 second T-bird tranny). On top of that, I've got a triple disk Circle D converter (3500-3700 stall) that just came in this past week. Will hold that power just fine. SO, I'm hoping to have it all running within a couple of weeks. I just came up from the garage working on it tonight. All that's left on the motor is to get the head gaskets (they're in transit) and bolt that together. Then just get it all back in the car and it'll be ready to go. When it's all said and done, gonna try and run 10s on this setup. I honestly don't think it'll happen, but I'm gonna try. And if it doesn't....well, I've still got the nitrous kit.
