That capri won't know whether to **** or get off the pot!
I just hope you can get her hooked up enough to enjoy the G forces that ALL that torque is gonna plant on your backside!!!!!!!

Yeah, like YOURS isn't a serious motor.
That kind of power and torque numbers would (like someone else so elloquently stated), twist them in half.
That's going to be a handful on the street, and on the track! (but it sure should be fun!!!!!!!)
I hope you've got at least a 6al unit in it. I think you're going to be up against the rev limiter plenty when the tires get a taste of that power!!!!!
Get a couple of videos of John Force racing so you can practice his 'punch/lift/punch/lift' expertise!!!!!
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa (insert a couple of oh unh, ohs) here, and a wheeeew.......)
Good job Chilly! If your going to drive it much on the street, I'd stick a set of 3.73's in it. Call Kris at Continental Converters and have him whip up a tight 10in. converter for you.
My 375 has the short block done. I bought the Victor Jr., and the MSD dist. I only need the carb and pushrods to finish.
How much did the dyno thrash cost?
Some friendly advice, take extra shorts with you the first time out to the track!
Ok,Ok, me and my peanut motor are going back to the porch. Too many big dogs in this pack.
Yea, I know what you mean chilly. Non of my current parts that will transfer to a 351 will support 500hp, so it would have to be a total scratch engine for me. I'll just have to learn to live with my motor inadequacy.
At least I can buy an ass load of chrome for it and make it look nice. And then there is.... NOS!!!
I'm going to see how the F/M boys do with this 331 they are building. My current parts should support a 302 based stroker motor.
I'll be happy to rip off a 12 second pass with this build. It's real close to project 11.99. The cars still in street gears tho. (3:89's) I really like to drive my rides on the street, but I can't wait till spring to go to the track and make a couple of passes. It's been a couple of years.
