Clint,
I might come. Don't know if i'll have the car back together but if i do that will be a good drive to start breaking in the new Janis trans ;)

No doubt!! You won't go wrong with the Janis!! It only took 10 yrs for all the boys near the southern border to make us come to our senses to go to Vince in the first place!! Now just waiting for them to chime in and gloat about it. I know your out there..... come on and lemme have it;)

It's a Te45 with the 63mm wheel or a Te45a with the 66mm wheel? P-trim or Q-trim?

Your nerves will be fine through the 1/8mi., it's when the big MPH happens through the 1/4mi. that you might pucker some... :D

Tranny back in the car? How long 'til you upgrade the turbo? I'm sure the air potential of the cui., heads, and cam are itching for more volume!!

I'm sure the car and combination make for a quick & fun 'lil street car.

I'm supposed to be coming up to Richard's place next weekend, and heard about it.

Once you get used to it, and get the chassis and suspension working good, it'll be a walk in the park. And then you're only a turbo and converter away from 130+mph... :eek:

TE45A. Thinking P trim (3" in / 2" out).
 
Well I had a great time!! On 255/60 drag radials Syd went 6.78 @ 103MPH at 21.5psi... I was thrilled to say the least :D. Track was in great shape... With a little better tire I think she has a 6.50 or better in her. I had a 1.54 60ft. She weighs 3760 with me in it so I need to shed a few pounds before THS in BG. I should be competitive to say the least in a few weeks so I am ready...
 
well........................

where do i start, I ran a best of 7.17@96 1.60 ft leaving @ 4psi on the T-brak. I think the boost was somewhere close to 35psi :rolleyes: on pump gas and 22* of timing. Also stupid me left the laptop @ home. so i was driving old skool.

Is that knock i hear?


The car weighs 3795 with me in it :confused:



my stroker motor runs good...................................next up is a stage 2. if that don't run in the 6's. chevy Ls FTW
 
thats good Clint

Yes, Yes, and Yes...
Full Billet 200 with electric brake from Vince Janis, Bob Bailey 2-step for stock ignition from Holly (absolutely love that thing!!), XFI from Holly...
