Was there a particular reason that you went with Chrysler length rods?

I have a Stef's custom pan - its like a typical rear sump but no second small kick out up front since I am running an external oil pump.

I am not sure why the engine builder used that rod length.


Here is the first start up. I consider it a victory as after 5 minutes there was not a single drop of anything on the driveway lol.

Rob from RJ Fabrication in Hesperia, CA. I love the headers this way - its so easy to get to anything below the car as its wide open. Days of room for everything from header bolts / starter / oil pan, trans, etc. Now I can also run a real belly pan to.

Yes, same headers- just turned upside down so the exit was in the rear for the dyno vs the front exit in the car.

How easy is it to get to the spark plugs with those headers? Smile

Really easy under one condition -- you go in from the bottom vs the top.

Going to the track tomorrow for some testing. We will see how this translates to ET. Hoping to get a couple good 1/8th mile passes in after a 330' just to make sure everything is good.

Well I didn't plan on making Street Car Super Nationals my testing place, but it worked out that way as I missed two previous opportunities to test.

The video below is only my second full pass ever on this new combo - since I decided to enter open comp - the qualifying passes I was lifting at 1,000 feet.

So this particular run is round 2 of eliminations.   I ended up running a 8.62 @ 160.14 mph.   I ended up winning by only .007 of a second - the slower car got a 3+ second head start which you can see through the windshield. I scaled the car and it weighs 3395lbs with me in it.  I still have the nitrous converter in there from my last combo, so there is definitely opportunity in the front half as my best 60' all weekend was only a 1.291.  

Anyway the car pulls easily to 8,000 rpm and has some good top end - mph difference from the 1/8th to the 1/4 is about 34 mph. The car sounds amazing going down the track.

I think when this is all said and done the car will be a solid 8.40 car which will allow me to run 8.50 and 8.60 index almost anywhere - as these passes were in Las Vegas, where the track elevation is 2,300 or so.

That is one fine looking ride my friend. I've always liked your car and the attention to detail you put forth into it. Nice job.

So ran at Famoso - car is definitely quicker here vs Vegas - here is a video of a pass.   Sound isn't that great but the car 60' better - 8.4X car easy.
