Chad, on your converter question, any converter company can build what you need. A neutral pump and a very aggressive stator should get it moving, now how well it locked up on the big end would be a different story. Definitly want a diode/sprag in it.

If you're cramping you're low on electrolytes. "Sodium, potassium, and chloride are the significant electrolytes along with magnesium, calcium, phosphate, and bicarbonates". Sodium chloride is table salt, that's why they use to use salt tablets when sweating. Electrolytes helps the cells to communicate. Which is to say you can have ample water in your system but if you're electrolyte deficient cells won't re-hydrate once depleted via sweat. Sports drinks replace electrolytes but also calories. If you don't want the calories then they have "electrolyte water beverage" such as Propel by gator aid. A powder you simply add to your water. Good luck Gramps!


Lmao ^^ thanks for the info Bucky!

As much as it pains me to say it, ATI seems to have something going on, particularly for footbraked Stockers, in regards to their stall achieved / slip percentage downtrack. I dunno.
For yours I'd talk to Hughes for a bolt together, if that's legal.

I'd also at least talk to FTI, and get their thoughts.

The exhaust came in at 67cc. Need to shrink it up 2cc, no problem. I decided not to weld mine. Always wanted to try it and makes sense on my stuff. Standard vs raised exhaust.

With todays NO TECH at NHRA races the only time those heads would be checked is either at Indy or if you set a record....

But making them the right CC is the right thing to do....

Easy enough to cut the exhaust side with that Bport setup.....

2 CC's isn't much......

For sure. I would never send it to someone illegal or run it myself that way.

Couple updates. I used a coating that I have used on firearms to be different on the front wheels. Also got the brake pedal moved to the firewall

Ended up with a TH200, couple A1 converters, and a new Dewco 3rd member.

Also ended up with 45 hours in the manifold and ordered low drag bearings and seals.

Not right now, going to concentrate on the race car.

Last picture, Camaro is being picked up in an hour and transported to the new owner.

The interior is close to GT legal now. Ordered a new dash panel and have to carpet the metal floor mats to be legal.

Engine goes on the dyno the end of the month.
