Dave, I'm in contact with your buddy now trying to set something up. We are going to see what a 2.73 rear will do vs a 3.42.

I finished the springs and the valvetrain up top. Should be tuned (speed denisty as well )and dyno'd shortly.

It sounds really tame but really deep, at least to me. I'm really happy with it so far, I want my dad to check it out, he loves it whenever the car gets something new. He liked the big stall on the stock car a lot, he'll get a kick out of the cam.

Oh yea, the doors shake a lot. Whenever iget a cam, its not cool unless it shakes the doors a lot.

Haha if I run fast enough to justify one that would be awesome.

I'm figuring a smoked tranny will be the difference

There isn't any time to get the rear or put it in, I don't have the option. I guess all I can do is let the car cool down as much as possible between runs, I don't know....

Great to see the real mods begin ... warning uninformed question alert: What made you go speed-density vs the old edit (I know that the car likes it better) ... I thought the benifits were towards more higher hp cars (turbo/blowers and their ilk) Any significant rwhp difference in tuning vs the other way?

If I don't have to run a maf, why would I run a maf?

It'll be at the c/f shootout, taking 6 hour breaks between runs to save the tranny.

Well unless they force me to work, so far I don't have to.
