I am real curious to see how it runs as I would NOT have built/ordered the motor as he did. I think its going to be slower than he thinks.
My 555 13:1 alcohol motor with first two second of run at -19 degrees has 335cc Dart Pro 1 heads, car weights 3350 and I am 200lbs runs 9.03@153MPH. 2 inch headers. Car still have power everything, stereo, carpets, just a race seat is only internal change other than safety stuff.
I am really curious to see how this motor runs with that big of runners/headers. I think its going to be slower than mine. If he cranks off a 8.6-8.7 I will be impressed. Anything less its a disappointment.
I only look at real world results on the track to determine good, better, or best.
I would like to know what this motor runs, I ran a set of BMF 385 heads on a 565 alky injected motor and that think would fly but it was in a 2400 pound car.
