    Some pics of my drag car build. My cousin and I started this project about 4 years ago. The engine is a couple weeks from seeing the dyno. It is a 408. factory 360 block indy 360-h1-2k oval head kit w/ jesel rockers and eagle stroker crank. Lots of time and money in this car and it is only about 60% done. more pics and updates later.

                  Just got a call from the engine builder they dyno'd it today. It made 530 ft.lbs @ 5000 and 590 h.p. @ 6000 and held it still @ 7000. 15 pulls every pull real close he said it was real looby idle but real crisp and quick. headers are a little big @ 1 7/8 i.d. could make more with 1 3/4. This motor is basically a pump gas motor. I'm very happy with these numbers

                          My engine builder Tom was trying a few different set ups with spacer plates and tune ups. I dont think normally they do that many.

                            well I tried to put the dyno sheet on here but cant figure it out. it made 529.5 ft.lbs @4900 rpm & 593.3 H.P. @6700 rpm was hoping the rpm's would have been lower cuz of the stock block but like the numbers it made. Pics of motor to follow

                              What's the cam set at? If there's room to advance it a few degrees, that will usually bring the power band down into a bit lower rpm range....talk to your engine builder about it and see what he says....
