Fresh & Sleezy new short block is in the car & running.

Went to the track Thrusday night for test & Tune.
Best pass was 12.20@113.53,1.78 short time & 7.88@91.50in the 1/8th.

Had a few little problems:
1.parking brake wouldn't hold so I could not do a good burn out.

2.cams need to be degreed, I think they are a little retarded.

3.Need to get a +40 cal that actually works so I can run more than 23psi boost.

4.Had a valve stem core leaking & fouled one plug, but already fixed those.

Hope to break into the 11s before the end of the year.

It took a bit longer than I had hoped, but thanks.
I have quite the collection of torn up bottom end parts!!!!!!!!

You made a hell of an effort just to get the car to SDAC, no need to kill yourself again not being under a real deadline...

Found a blown wheel cylinder & soaked brake shoes on the driver side, will fix this and parking brake should work.

In the process of making a mounting plate for a mag base that screws down
to the valley cover mounting holes to find true TDC and degree the cams.

11's soon.

Here's the mag base I made for my R/T. Screws down to the valve cover bolts. Good luck:thumb:

What cal are you running now? You still running the 23" slicks? Any chassis tuning?

I should hope you'll get into the 11's, :thumb:

I think your cool oil cap will do it!!!!!!!!!

Kevin, stock cal w/rev limiter removed & no boost control.
Yes 23" slicks.
No more chassis tuning than before, best 60' is 1.71
