Any plans on going to Heartland Park to test and tune? I'd love to come see the car in action!

Nothing set in stone, but I do want to get out there and make some passes. It feels really good, just being really cautious after kicking the rod out of the other iron motor.

I get it. I like to shake them down thoroughly as well.

I had planned on getting up there this summer but broke a few weekends ago and it's been so hot and humid anyway! It's supposed to be cooler this weekend.

Update, I took it to the track tonight first time since I hit the deer on DW2014, I was planning on making three hits two, 1/8 mile and one 1/4 mile.
The track scales said 3397 lbs., full exhaust and 28x 10.5 slicks the only decent pass it went 10.552@130.67mph. Still having problems with the new shifter hanging up between 2nd and 3rd gear, on the 10.55 pass I still fought that gear change(Slow). Motor seems to be happy good oil pressure all night, oil is clean. Just finished the leak down and compression test all was good, Leak down on all cylinders were below 4% and the compression was all with in 6 psi. I plan on cutting oil filter in the morning. I think there is a lot more left in this motor, my tune was very safe, 30 deg. timing and A/F ratio was rich.

I made aluminum tabs that stick out and the hub caps bolt on from the side in two places. I used body panel epoxy to glue the tabs on the wheels, Centerline aluminum, I wanted the stock grocery getter look.

Moparx,
I borrowed the photos from Bob Brehm's facebook page. Bob is the best amateur automotive event photographer in the mid-west!
Bob was a school friend of Doug, KSJ's brother, and he told me at Drag Week that KSJ's only redeeming quality was that he introduced Bob to 69 lawndart!

I have to agree KSJ has an innate knack of introducing cool people to other cool people!! While he is definitely not in that club, he serves as a kind of Social honey bee.
