Tom Had a great weekend without showing off some burnouts , However when everyone left the track Dudek showed me how it should be driven ..

I need some instrumentation to get it perfect ..

and because I have to make stuff difficult , Ill have the laptop next to me showing me my lack of fuel pressure through the LM1 ... I cant believe I may need to put two pumps in



I think this is the nicest pic Ive ever taken .

Wish I wouldnt have had the fuel pressure gage ducttaped to the window , can anyone photochop that out ?

havent posted since maple grove been up to my ankles in work , family , etc ..

since maple grove , i simplified my fuel system wih a deadhead aeromotive pump repiped and seems to work ok

installed a nordskopf fuel gage that can trigger the kenne belle if the fuel pressure gets low and triggers a lite on the tach .

msd in the heater box

put in a kenn belle boostapump to the msd and fuel pump

new/used leaf springs with front lowering hangers

I figured that i would have a baseline to start from at carlisle so i didnt ballast the trunk .


Smoke all the way down the track .



it was fun though .. so i hope anyone doesnt think that a killer hemi and a nice paint job will get you a trophy .

lots of r &d left ...

Not too many participants at the race for the shootout ... come on guys use these cars what they were built for !

real ag setup on this one ...

but you can cut your own hood and get parts from mike at http://www.beaparts.com/

OR http://www.n96airgrabber.com/

search for wilsons retorations also ..

you can probably get Everything , Original you need

for less than 3K ( expensive )

Or probably less than 1600 NIC hood , you can modify a flat hood ..

This is a picture of an air grabber factory

If youre creative with sheetmetal , you can definitely cut your own hood.

Come on already! Get that thing out in the sunlight where we can see it. And a few smokey burn out pics would be nice too.

Car looks great. Can't wait to see the time results and magazine coverage of the FAST and PURESTOCK events.

I have a Ralley Red 71 GTX with AG/auto that I wanted to do this too. Even picked up a 71 Hemi block.

My A12 is in line 1st though.




forget the a12 ... This is where its at

Hows This.......................
