Well Corey got your...errr...my 427 installed today. Was super happy to get the motor put in, was worried about the stock LS3 under all that boost from your...errr...my turbos. Looks like she's gonna run strong now though

Sweet. I'll put it on our Calendar. Even just a quick dinner will be cool to get together.

Bonnie is aware and ready to eat. lol

I remember reading before you were trying to find out if your spoiler was going to make it down the mile or not. Did you ever get a concrete answer for this or are you just going to remove it for the run?

Man I'm trying like heck to get one built by Ed Quay race cars... It'll be like the pro stock spoilers...flat and long...if I can't, I'll take off the blade and put the lip spoiler back on.

There are two guys offering to take their car by and use it for a template...

Let's see... Car is in the shop getting final prep for the mile... Corey updated me that before he left the shop today, he intended to have the rear cradle and new fuel cell back in the car...

We opted for the Weldon fuel pump.. And we are using -12 fuel line...the factory tank with the Lingenfelter dual pumps will supply the fuel cell, and the
Weldon will supply the fuel rails... We changed out my injectors for a bit bigger ones to prevent a lean condition due to a lack of injector capacity...we changed from 93 lb/hr at 58-60 psi to 127 lb/hr injectors at 58-60 psi..

the frame work and trim for the parachute mount is finished... The anchor tube will stick out through the license plate opening...remove the plate, mount the chute, and go fast....

We are going to hook up the boost controller lines and start cranking the boost...and increase the nitrous shot size... Corey pulled the valve covers and checked the torque on the head bolts. I wanted that done prior to adding a bunch of boost...

That's what I have going on right now.... And again, I apologize... How bout you...???

Bro, I got smoked in the quarter mile at the Fest.. Couldn't get it off the line... 3.07 gears.... But wait until we see what happens at the mile...

Corey won't dyno it in 4th gear anymore due to wheel speed at the redline... It's north of 180 mph... Hopefully in five weeks we'll know... We may have to use the 4 wheel dyno since we can tie the car straight down on it to keep from spinning the tires...

Oh damn man, get out of town. I bet it's tough as hell to get it to hook. Once it does though, it'll be no joke. I can imagine how beastly this car must be.

Actually the car was dead hooking.... One launch was over 5500 rpm and the car damn near stalled... I'm trying to slip the clutch but not being successful yet... Still working on the driver mod...
