I picked up Bigcube's fat tire, tube chassis Dart and will be changing it over to a Gen3 Hemi.

This will be a 439" Aluminum block, with 6.4 heads and tall Ritter intake done by Brett Miller. 1050 dom on e85 and a 904 trans.

This will be another bottom bulb bracket car. The time line on this project all depends on work, and if the other car doesn't get jealous and break.

My plan is to get my latest toy home from Nebraska this spring, and have it reassembled and tested in time to go to Clay City for the Mopar show. I bought the old Buzzin' Half Duzzin'and most of the pieces to put it back together. I changed jobs and hope to have a little more time to race.

You guys have some awesome projects and upgrades.

I have no plans this winter except for some kind of trans protection such as a shorty blanket or something for track days.
I'll probably enjoy the Duster for one more Summer then sell it to move on to another project of some kind. I enjoy building them as much as I do driving or racing them.

Nothing much, I need new headers for 11secdart as present ones are worn and leaking going to order a new set of Tubular Automotive or TTI ones soon, get them coated and put them in, bought a line loc for the D150 and have to put that in too. Dart got a fresh trans, rear, rebuilt fuel pump and drag radials last season so except for the headers its ready to go.

The plan is to get my block back from Mitchell, get (2) sleeves installed and start over. Switching to a external swinging pickup to get around the mess in the oiling system. After I had gotten the motor in the car the first time I came across a set of ported -1s so, they will be replacing the EZ-1's. I just had those flowed and they came back pretty good. They flowed 395/300 @ .800 and actually kept going to .900 @ 409/304 but, I'm going to stay around .800 lift. Should work pretty good on a 557". While all that is happening I have a spare 440 in the car that we will be running a new nostalgia series at Cecil County. Should be a fun year.

Ron, we can pass that intake to you once I get the big motor

ProSport - that picture makes me want to take a road trip! I love that Duster!!

I'm hoping to not get too deep into the Duster this winter as I'm still licking my wounds from last year's thrash. Change out the 4.10's for some 4.30's, relocate the rear shocks and drop some weight. Otherwise I'm hoping to make many passes and get the 60's into the 1.3's.

Trying to decide to crush it or replace the sheet metal that needs replacing. Will probably be hanging out in the restorations section for advice. Not like it will be a show car or anything. Trying to decide if worth it to swap over to RHD (Michelle is used to shifting with left hand) but at this point hoping does not break in half before moving into garage. That and replace solar panels after one got trashed in Maria, which led to deciding to replace all of them as maker out of business and was a scam so upgrading entire roof system (which overall worked out great as our life does not revolve around feeding generator as many people here does, more details when I have internet working well enough to post pictures, yes we are fully aware storm was the 19th September 2017 and it is 2 January 2018, best estimate was 2-3 weeks for new antenna). With new panels will have more power for same roof area so welder will not be a problem.

I like options, and have three cars right now....When you race, you have to have spares, even if they don't all match.

My plans for 2018 are to finish my Mopar small block 305 CID "nostalgia" motor for my '72 Plymouth Satellite Sebring Plus.

Already have the custom billet 2.96" stroke (Bryant Racing) crankshaft at the machine shop. The .030 over 340 block is being decked for TRW dome pistons (L2322F) .017" out of the block. Custom (Cunningham) rods at 6.298" center to center length are also ready to go. Will use an old set of open chamber "O" cylinder heads (2.02 intake) with 273 adjustable rockers (Rocker Arms Unlimited) and a 340 ('68 manual profile, more or less) hydraulic camshaft (Oregon Cams). Factory correct 1972 Carter ThermoQuad with matching '72 factory cast iron intake manifold and factory '72 trap door air cleaner are also ready on hand (well, need to re-build the carb). Plain chrome (no Mopar logo) Direct Connection valve covers and Kevko 5 quart oil pan and pick-up round things out.

The only item up in the air at the moment are exhaust manifolds. May have to use the 318 manifolds from the original motor for starters.

Thanks Jack as actually some one else offered to let me try an intake and carb that I am pretty sure will fit under my hood. But I will talk to you and your dad soon. Ron

Me thinks those stock 318 exhaust manifolds will restrict the exhaust flow on those 340 heads, unless you enlarge them. All the stock 318 exhaust manifolds I've seen have the center ports siamezed and all the 340 and 360 manifolds don't work scope
The first 340 motor I built for a customer years ago was going into a 1965 or 1966 Formula S Baracuda that had the hi Po 273 motor in it originally, I told the customer it would need a good set of headers and he ended up installing the motor with the stock 273 exhaust manifolds to get it running, needless to say it didn't run that good with that stock exhaust system on it down
He sold it and the next guy fix it with headers and dual exhaust up

Well the 2018 race season upgrades have been slow for me as I messed up my knee but it is slowly coming around. I ordered an ATI powerglide Super Case tonight and a Mopar bellhousing. It is going in my small tire car set-up with a 1.69 low gear to take some hit out of it. I bought Jason Digbys nitrous converter when he switched to turbos so its already sitting here as is a 300-700 Nitrous Solutions plate system. I hope to pull the small block on my bracket car asap to freshen up the engine after 3 seasons of limited use. I hope to upgrade it to a roller cam over the Winter. My Son Matt's engine is fresh so thats a GOOD thing. Aren't Winters great???

Interesting for such a heavy car and probably needing to spin a heavy piston hard.

Im working on a odd 318 block based 340 with some old but new trw flat tops above deck and even they are very heavy.
