That surprised me, but :
1. He didn't have ducks running against him.
2. BobR, who's on Gentile's Mustang crew, says the races are real & no BS.
3. I don't hate the guy, or for that matter "Scooter" - they're just racers who got lucky with a TV show.

Chief won the first big No Prep show at Bristol. Not sure why they keep saying he's never run No Prep.

I know nothing about any of them, but it is interesting when the Bruder bros are talking about adding and adding power and then Big Chief's little engine beats them all. Were the other guys way too conservative up on the hill and not make adjustments fast enough and Chief just started at 11?

“Regular” Meaning real Pontiac architecture? Yes. 100% aftermarket parts? Yes. 40 + pounds of boost with a splash of nitromethane? Yes.
This is no DRCE engine, or a 481x. He’s doing it the hard way with good results.

Feel the same way about Big Chief. All through the show he made excuses about no prep experience. And nobody brags as much as Chief when he wins a race. Not a humble bone in his body.

Admitting up front that I don't know much about current Tin Indian race parts, I'll take a w.a.g. that Big Head runs the Poncho equivalent of a KB block with B1-MC heads and a sh!tload of boost + rocket fuel. So, not "exotic" in terms of the latest innovations & architecture, but something proven and tuned to the nth degree.

Everyone else who keeps changing their combinations has to re-invent the wheel to some extent to get a solid baseline. His is probably just a series of constant refinements...


An unskilled person with a "cool idea", a bunch of porting tools, and a set of cylinder heads is a sure recipe for disaster.
I AM that person!

About all I can say is there's nothing in the rules that say you have to be moral, ethical and charming to be involved in this stuff.

Some of those folks might be "interesting" to hang out with... for a while... but I wouldn't buy most of them beer for the "privilege" of their company.

And no one in grudge, N/T, No Prep, street racing, etc, ever never lied about anything in their car ever, not never. That fibber.


If the results don't match the theory, change the theory.

Never see more than a few minutes of that show except when channel surfing, what a bunch of white trash, inked-up, foul mothed scuzzy looking dirt bags. The promos say it all in 30 seconds with the fighting and cursing.. like watching WWE and roller derby.

Now just add a bunch of horsepower and burning rubber now you have a hit up

Keeps me tuning in and going to the races shruggy

When you see these cars make a clean pass at the track it is insane trying to hook this much power on the so called "street" race.

That's right , the show is a hit as far as the rating are concerned. About a year ago I saw a list for cable TV realty shows and while Outlaws was further down the list it was the number 1 in the car genre.... btw Gas Monkey was number 2... GYC didn't even show on the list....

PLENTY of bada$$ Pontiac parts available. Look at what John Langer did at the world cup race a couple weeks back. 7.54 on a 29.5x10.5 Pontiac that is naturally aspirated all Pontiac architecture engine. They have better support with stuff that makes power than we do. Last I heard Chiefs deal still had an Edelbrock head, of course ALL the boost don't hurt either.

It impressed me. I don't know exactly what he's running as far as parts today but, in past Street Outlaw shows, he had a Butler Performance block which is no where near what a proline block, etc. is. My cousin used to run a 71 GTO and ran that block. My cousin was not made of money so; again, it impresses me what Chief does with the parts we believe he has.
