    yep, changed the heads, cam, and made a proper baffle for the lower intake so I dont have an oil burning problem any more.... just tires.. LOL.

    My goal is to get it into the low-mid 13's before the end of summer.

    it will run faster with traction.... I ran the same MPH as Kingcars and he ran a 14.6, so I know there is more in it with slicks.... and thanks for the comments.
    why do you think I didnt disagree with you? LOL... I know, you know your stuff. and actually I was impressed it ran that fast...
    AND didnt blow up! lol

    that stupid Ford Fungus was there all night, I beat him 2 out of 3 races... he won the won on tape by a tenth of a second... we had the EXACT MPH though. he got slower every lap.

    You're gonna need the converter to get it off the line...The E-cam waits a little bit before they wake up...
