Default 408 stalled auto trans am vs my twin China turbo ws6

Gave the 408 car two cars and the hit. I had my second stage a little hot and had let completely out and recenter the car on the road. Very pleased with its performance.

itís a 348 with a fti twin turbo cam, ported ls6 heads, ls2 I take, twin vs racing gt3582 billets (61/64) t3. Ptc single disk 4l80e. Every ounce of the car from the turbo kit, engine, trans, rear end, etc all built at home by me.

I launched on 3# and ramped it to 17# over about 1.3 seconds but it was a little too much.

i had a passenger also, I would Ha e been right at 4K lbs for this race

Totally agree. Everything he builds seems to run very good.
Great to see talented people with the skills that can do this. Nice job Cwarta!

Thanks guys! Appreciate it! It made right at 600whp @ 18psi on a mustang dyno, but it had a ripped wastegate diaphragm on the pass side. I brought the car home and it ran like poop when I started it to unload it off the trailer. Turns out I had 2 bad coils, I replaced those and this thing is silly powerful now. I asked the tuner if he noticed a miss on the dyno and he said that he did, but he checked things over and with a temp gun and couldnít find anything so he thought it was just my exhaust sound, as it only did it WOT. So Iím not entirely sure if itís making a bunch more now or not, but Iíve had 500+whp cars before and this thing would make them look totally silly. Hopefully going Tin the track Sunday if the weather holds out

Ugh.. yes. I hate Winter now. Just added some stainless .82 housings to my twin Gt3582's(well, On3's versions). Glad to see yours are up and running well.

Nice man! I bet those are mice pieces. This car has been performing flawless so far, I desperately need double adjustable front shocks though, next on the list. Funny story . Same might I raced this car, I supposedly declined to race another car car. If any of you saw my last race thread with my brother in laws car, we raced a few cars we thought would be good races with his 95 camaro we 5.3 swapped. 99 lm7 with longtubes and an ls1 Intake. Anyways we raced this built 383+, solid roller cam, stalled on slicks 3rd gen that was at the meet all night runnin everyone elseís cars down and drug the crap out of it, like 6 cars by the top of 2nd. He accused us, behind our back of course, of having nitrous and a turbo blah blah blah.

I find out heís telling people I was too scared to race him when I raced this 408 trans am. 😂😂😂

Papa dont play that ****. I was nice about it, usually I would be an *******.
