Cleaned out the garage.

I had to back it out today which as usual meant the base police came to pay me a visit but they dont care much.
It will get a fresh coat of paint this winter and some odds and ends tied up then it will go to the track. Just for you motorheads It is a 13.0:1comp 445CID big block running just under .600 lift cam and a 250HP shot of nitrous via a plate system. It beats the bike by about 8/10ths of a second in the quarter and shows about 18 inches of air under the tires upon launch. SD is not the place for heads up dragracing all these guys do is bracket racing so it does not get much time devoted to it anymore.
And well the truck is just that. However this might help explain why the bike had to be black.

Re: Cleaned out the garage.

At 13 to 1 I guess it only sees the strip. Flat top or domed?

Re: Cleaned out the garage.

Oh they are quite domed it could street if on race fuel and who can afford that these days you might could get away with premium with some retard in the timing but the nitrous would be out of the question.

Re: Cleaned out the garage.

That's some serious motor, dude! 13 and a 250 shot??? Holy moly! Where do you find octane for that??? What engine mods did you do?

Oops, I forgot...you're at an airbase, right? Got AVGAS? (pun on got milk?)

Have you dynoed it for numbers? How about best 60', reaction, 1/4 and trap? Enquiring minds want to know. What's the story about how you got that car? (Owned from new, bought to race, inherited from Grandma...c'mon, there's a story here we would like to know!)

That must be a fun ride. I'm not sure I like the front end aesthetics though!

Re: Cleaned out the garage.

Well when I was 15 I was taking a relieving myself on the side of some guys house and I happened to see it sitting in his backyard. It was an original 340 4spd car which has become a rarity so thats how I sold the idea to my parents. I drove it all through high school.
When I got it she ran about 15 in the quarter and well lets just say I was none to happy about it. That was with a very lightly modded 340CID small block that was a 9.8/1 motor and needed some work. I went through it a few times over the next 5 years and it saw a shitload of street action in dallas and fort worth. The best pass the small block ever made on the squeeze was on a 175shot of juice and that was a 10.90 in the quarter at that point everyone else was getting quicker by leaps and bounds so I began gathering the parts for the current motor. Then I joined the Air Force so everything pretty much shut down for me for about 1.5 years. Well anyhow now the paint shows it's 10 years of age and the motor has been done and dropped in so it is loads faster and a bit uglier but i will fix that.
Can buy gas at any performance shop usually 118octane does the trick.
Sorry it has never been dynoed but most computer programs put it at about 785Hp and 1100 lb ft of torque at 2k cause of the nitrous.
Best 1/4 = 9.56 with a 1.4 60ft

The front end looks better in person you can't even tell there is a grill there in the pic plus i need to put a cowl induction hood on it.

Mods Motor

Harland Sharp Roller Rockers
Ported and Polished 906 casting heads
Cylinder Bore is .030 over stock
ARP studded mains and Heads
Wiend Team G intake
worked 900cfm Holley double pumper
2.25inch primary hooker super comp headers
Two 1.5" core aluminum cross-flow radiator
Moroso electric water pump
I am sure i missed something.

Chassis
Fabbed subframe tied to 10point roll cage
Adapter mounts for BB swap
Manual gear box
28/10.50 Mickey thompson sportsman pros

Trans
Home rebuilt gapped to my spec.A727
Cheetah reverse manual valve body
3800 rpm stall GER race converter 9.5"

and all that equals loads of money and it still is not 100% my liking but it cost nothing as long as I let it sit so I work on it as the funds permit these days and the less you rush them the nicer they end up. Anyhow driving something like it is an awesome especially when you do all the work yourself with the exception of the machine work on the block you get to see what you are capable of.

Re: Cleaned out the garage.

Bet your next door neighbor loves it when you start that thing up!

Open collectors, I'm sure?

Re: Cleaned out the garage.

Neighbors dont seem to mind but there is one lady about a half a block away that calls the base police every other time i start it. It is open collector atm but i have some 3.5" mufflers i am going to install with 7" total exhaust diameter i still can't imagine it being to quiet. But i still have to wrap it a few times before i shut it off just to keep her on her toes. If i knew how to make a sound file i would put one on here for ya but it might make the microphone go static i could prolly leave it inside the house though.

If i had as much money dumped in a bike as i do the car it would not be missing a single mod i dont think. But it has been over 10 years so i dont notice it too much.

Re: Cleaned out the garage.

Lol nope got the digital camera after i moved to SD and it has not been in a while. I do have a pic of me and my buddies pushing it on the trailer after a head gasket took a dump on me but thats not all that exciting and a bit embarrasing. That was the last race of the smallblock.
