The car is a work in progress, but to date its run a best of 10.12 135 at 4250# with driver.

The combination is an IDT premier block at 4.532 bore and 4.5 stroke Scat forged crank, Scat 6.8 rods, JE 11:1 pistons. Heads are A460 2.30 intake as "rubbed on" by Charlie Evans, from Lem Evans with a port matched tall runner TFS A460 manifold. Comp 269/277 roller, with Crane Ultrapro lifters, Jesel 1.8 shaft rockers, Manton pushrods. Trans is a Lentech AOD with a 4000 stall Edge 9" converter, 3.89 9" and 325/50/15 Hoosier drag radials. Fuel and spark are managed by EMS-Pro Megasquirt EFI from EFI Source.

We tuned it on the Mustang chassis dyno at Westech and made 708 HP at the tires at 6400.

Still chasing a decent 60 ft. this one at Firebird in April was a 1.505 the best its done. I need a better front spring to get the weight transfered as I have to roll on the throttle to keep from spinning at the initial launch. As pictured it has 750# road race fornt springs and I'm going try some 260# Moroso Trick springs I had lying around if I can get thwm in the car. See post in suspension section.

Hey Lem, good to be heard from, the economy has slowed down my progress a bit.

J.Toney, yup that was it. I broke in '05, won the the BB/NA class in '06 and runner-upped in BB/NA in 07.

Nice runs for a big car. I agree. That front spring is probably a tad heavy.

The weight is a combination of full interior, dynamat etc., full chro-mo cage, subframe connectors, Strange fabricated rear-end housing, the IDT block, full stock style gas tank, and finally my fat carcass. The car wieghs just under 4000# without me in it. Embarassed

My cousins 73 Mustang with 466 and Blue Thunder Aluminum heads with a roll bar weighed i think 3,630 lbs with him in it.
