Congratulations, Mike! Very impressive numbers!
Not going to go like Greg and Chilly and get a PA C4 built up for ya?
Now to see (after your trans repair/replacement), if you can put even half of that HP/TQ to the ground!

I would like to get a pa trans, but im in the middle of getting a cage put in, an baby due july
, so im going to try to get the good stuff to fix it, I dont think any clutches went , just one hard part. I have the hardend input shaft and power planet. The sun gear? I keep everybody update, it will be out this week end. On the power to the ground, if i do a 1/16 mile burnout and still do 10's thats ok by me.
sure look cool

Hey Mike, "Faster than Greg Cooks Car"
Congrats on the results. I'm just curious in that I'm not 100% sure but did you have to do any shock tower/any other mods to get that badboy to fit?? Access to all of your plugs?

"6 tons of Fun" Theres no doubt that the one on the left is the classiest/sweetest one of the bunch and my pick but....... can she go?

50 HP tech tip: See that old gray coil wire off a junkyard station wagon? Replace it with a new one and pick up 50 HP and 1000 rpm!
Damn, I sure wish I had one of those grey coil wires on my motor now, I could really use 50 HP.

Polar, the shock towers are as stock as a stove, spark plugs, require to remove the valve covers.

Thanks Mike. Just planning ahead for when something "bigger" will hopefully find a home under my hood.


Hey DT, where have you been lost the last 3-4 days?
I bet you and that sweet 66 500 XL went out for another road trip and you almost didn't turn around to go back home!

Hey Greg Cook,

What did the Booze Bros say when you went 10.0s in the '63 with the 557 using those heads they said wouldn't let the 557 run any better than the 514 that was in it? Did you taunt them about it or did they mention anything after you got a much better ET?

I love street. Basicly I can not afford to have a "race car". Dont have the time and the tracks are to far away. So a race car for us would be like the boat many people have thats sets the fading in the sun. No time...no water
Nothing like shaking the cars around you when sitting at the stop light
