I was with Clark at St. Louis, while I am pretty sure they were W9s, I really made an assumption as much as an inspection. However saying that I think W8's would have jumped out at me cause they do look a little different than the W9s. I wanted to ask Paul a thousand questions but he was pretty busy at the time we dropped by.
Thinking about it, he sure builds some fast stuff, although mostly big CI. If we build an ultimate DW motor I would use his stuff for sure.
Already looking forward to DW 2018!
Yes w9 top end and "598" Mopar intake that I did.
I did all of the valve train also.
Was nervous about valve train life ( first time had to make cam go over 1000mi😮)
Over 1200miles and did not even have to adjust a rocker motor is seeing 8500 rpm+on the pass.
Set class record and lost the deal due to carb struggles and converter not matched to the new engine.
Hope to back next year and show what car really has in it.
Paul worked his butt off to get this done big thanks go out to him and his Son for busting hump.
