Yeah...
I am looking at all of the combos.
Using 2 Terminators or 5 inch toilets will involve purchasing more parts.
I already have parts for the Tri-Power.
A Big and Ugly hat would look cool sticking thru the hood.
It will go down the track at Adel this weekend with the Odd Couple 5+4.

Keith, if you would like to try a Q16 test with twin Dommie's I'd loan you my 1450 QFX, if you can come up with another. Cool

That would be fun, but the dyno fest is done. 42 regular pulls and a few "loadies" to play with things.
The 58 will get the 514 extracted and the 618 plugged in...all ready for tests on Saturday.
I am about a week in the hole for my end of year plan, and prep for the "40 Years of Insanity" tour for 2013.
The race tour will celebrate my 40 year milestone of racing the old 58 Custom 300.
Thanks!
Keith
Oh...I already started another 10 Liters of Joy project cheers . Maybe that one can get a Q16 test! It should be done in March or April.

Thanks!
We will find out tomorrow!
The engine is in the car and ready to go test.
This is my first "chirping" engine. I only fired it at the house for about 30 seconds,
But the chirp at idle was there.
Damn thing sounds a little scary...in a nice way.

Ok...ok...
I have no video because I have no Crüe...Lone Wolf.
However, a nice spectator sent me some pics.
As soon as I get the trailer parked inside, details will follow.

Ok...the story. It was a few nights before Christmas.
The 618 was all tucked in and happy in its new home. The elves worked their asses off.

So..The day was very pretty, about 54-56 degrees. It was a test-tune day at the track. SGMP is a fine Divisional level NHRA track. The track was very cold. Lots of street tired cars dragging fuzzys on the line...no spray...
I only got to make 4 passes before the session ended.
First pass, timing at 27 and no retards. Engine was just like it came off the dyno. The first pass scared the crap out of me. I returned wondering what I was going to do with this engine. It left pretty nice, began spinning the tires... got crooked...I lifted, straightenedand hammered it again. Lit the tires again. This happened 4 times until I finally crossed the finish line at 130 MPH...kinda spinning the tires. These are brand new (last night) Hoosier 15x33s. I was thinking about Wille Borsch and his tire spinning altered... affraid
Second pass... cranked in a 15 degree starting line retard, ramping it off 2.5 seconds out. I also applied a 15 degree retard for the rest of the run. Timing is now 12 degrees. It left pretty nice and ran a nice straight 9.21 at 146 MPH. All of the ballast is out of the car, so it should be about 3650#.
Third pass, I gave it 3 degrees more timing, so it is at 15. It ran relatively straight and went a 9.07 at 151 MPH.
Rushed to get back to the lanes before they closed, but gave it 5 more degrees of timing. We are now at 20.
It left nicely, wheels up.. with a 1.29 60' (best ever for the 58) then got crooked, spinning. I lifted, straightened it guickly and nailed it again...headed for the other end...ran a 9.04 at 153 MPH. I need to look at the RacePak file to see how long I was off the throttle, but I did look at the acceleration G reading and it went from 2.0G down to .35G...then back to 2.0G when I whacked it again. It would have been my first ever 8 second run! Grrr.
One or 2 two more passes and I could have figured out a timing strategy to get it hooked.

Not a drip of any fluids, no tools were used at the track...Ok the tire gauge...
It was a smooth trip, with the old 7.3 humming along for 470 miles.
So...Yeah...the old car could use a new rear suspension. I have the latest and greatest shocks, but the 26 year-old Art Morrison ladder bar setup could be improved with a nice 4-link. The car is also very nose heavy. It needs to spend a week in Kentucky with Dan-o to get the glass doors fit and painted.
I need to ask Santa for a parachute and get it on there before the first race in February.
Thats it!
Now it is time to get the next engine in progress. The Blue Thunder 514 will not go back in the car and will most likey find a new home. The #2 mill will be another "A head" 10 liter. Just need a few more parts.....
Thanks for all of the support...and for enduring this multi-page saga.
