I believe you’ll find that mpfi is a wise choice if you’ve never used prior. Is this race gas or methanol?

for the 2023 season. The decision was made to equip the car with a delay box and try to learn how to top bulb race here locally. I have raced for 27+ years, but have zero experience racing top bulb but looking forward to the challenge and learning as I go.

My advice to you if you want to shorten your learning curve by years and win sooner than later is to contact Bud Mcnasby and Lee Zane. These 2 guys have helped many. That said, I nor my son have used their service, I taught my son everything he knows and his results speak for themselves.


Since you first mentioned this it got me to thinking.

I'm sure a new car is gonna have some bugs to sort out be it chassis adjustment, torque converter or gearing, so I figure I'm just gonna have to spend what ever time need be to sort the car and make it pretty good and I'm comfortable in my driving routine again.

Then that would be the time to reach out to Bud or Lee for some formal training. Don't see it making sense to work with them till the car is prepared fairly well.

Now that the foundation is done, time to move on to the time consuming part, all the little detail stuff.

Rear mounted Anderson connector for battery charging.









This was about the time where I decided to change to EFI for hood clearance reasons. This meant cutting out the Racepak IQ3 dash mount to be replaced with the Holley 7" display. This will require some repairs to the carbon dash down the road to close in the hole around the Holley display.

This is where I took the car back home to finish the work. Was starting to be really hard to force myself to stay till 9 or 10:00 each night and drag myself to work every Saturday and Sunday to work all day. Will be a bit easier working from home on the rest.









Yes, stock steel doors with power windows as well as a stock hatch for weight bias in the rear.
