Doing a chunk with a spool for the Third Gen, for the Drag Strip in November.

I'm thinking 4.56 with the TSI BCRCXLS 6600 observed stall converter we have.

This is a deal I noticed. These gotta be 40-50 lbs lighter than an iron chunk, same accessories.

The car is a little heavy for it, but I think it'll be alright on spin buggy DOT street tires.

This video has some pop apparently, it's exploding with views.

It's only fair I publicly thank a member here.

When I went to get everything to put this together during lockdowns nobody had any cranks, rods or pistons.

So without Lance at Motorsports Unlimited, my buddy wouldn't be having the time of his life driving this on the street.

I was down to calling anyone for a crank, rods and pistons, which I never do (it was scary).

Motorsports Unlimited Terra Haute Indiana, came through Big time!

Thanks Lance!

Nice guy, knowledgeable, good price, on time!

I recommend them now, all the time.

The guy who owns this car is now having the time of his life, on the streets!!

I keep telling him if he's having fun now, wait until it gets cool out!

High pressure air isolated through the nose onto the radiator cured the fuel pressure (cavitation) issues.

It would idle sitting still at 185 degree's for an hour, but go to 210 degree's plus cruising down the highway, and the fuel would boil at the
belt pump inlet/outlet on the front of the engine.

Fixed

This thing exceeded our expectations

People luv it, Engine, Transmission and ring and pinion built in house.

There's only one T left to cross. 9 second time slip, n/a, pump gas. It's coming stay tuned.

Put a BLP bypass regulator on the third gen, it just got back from the turkey rod runs in Daytona Beach. It had vapor lock issues idling in the parade lines there.

I told him it needs a parade tune on it - bypass regulator.

We may plug the new 750-800hp 489 I'm working now in this car, *if* that engine cuts the mustard on the dyno.

This car works killer on the street from a 30 mph roll fab 9, BMR torque arm, trick shocks, I'd like to see that engine in this car.

He has buyers for this hydraulic roller cam 496 710 hp engine, in line waiting.

We'll see
