    That motor going in the Mustang looks bigger (physical external size) than a power stroke or a duramax.

    Gene, here's a video to get the blood pumping on a cold Sunday morning. This car is very similar to my pals Cobalt that I crew on. Enjoy! -Al

    Thatís a serious Altered.

    Is that engine based on the earlier 302 engine or the newer 0HC Coyote.
    Sounds like about 9000 rpm.

    I can't even visualize the amount of work that went into that chassis and platform..... she ran like a friggin' ARROW! Compared to that, anything I've ever put power to was like trying to bat a marshmallow...

    If I remember correctly the bent tubing is an axle shaft.

    Very nice car.

    Jackie,
    Yes it was. A medium riser cross-bolted 427 (actually 454). Pretty interesting seeing bolts and washers on the OUTSIDE of the block. The heads were original iron. I will look for more pictures.

    I saw this car at a show. In my mind, this is what it is all about.

    Back on the dyno. Time to test some 'round about' ways to take some dynamic load off the oil rings while staying within the stringent NHRA rules for Stock Eliminator. I need to find out where the 'bottom' is for oil ring tension....a balance of freeing up parasitic drag from the oil rings while still maintaining adequate oil control:





    Newest version of my quick change cam timing lash up:

    I have been watching

    A couple of Youtube creators who go to the junk yards and by LS engines trying to pick the aluminum blocks and heads, adding turbos to them and make them run. The LS engines seem to be very robust. They get 600 HP or more out of them, they claim anyway, with a street cam. I also watch Nicks Garage who pretty much only works on vintage MOPAR engines. Interesting stuff.
