Last October at the Texas Mile I ran 191 at 14lbs boost. Fuel pressure dropped off and got some detonation. 4 burned pistons and 5 bent rods. Drove it home 800 miles with no problems. I expected some piston damage, but the bent rods surprised me.

Building an LSX 429 for this October-should be running this weekend. To close to 200 to quit.

I apologize if we did talk and I don't remember it, but if we are both there in October, and that is my intention to be there... We need to hook up...

And I agree too close to quit...

I have one licensing pass to go and then it's katy bar the door... I'll see what 25 lbs and a 150-250 shot of giggle gas will do....

Good luck with the project... Going to be a bad arse car for sure....

What are you doing for the fuel system... ???

OP, sorry for the thread jack...
