    I hope to have it out this year with-OUT the procharger. I need to sort the chassis out, try and tuning an engine with a computer versus a screwdriver Yikes and get some seat time in.

    I will likely be in Ohio at the Chrysler Nationals this fall 2011

    Thanks, Still in process. I decided to switch to a cog setup instead of the 12 rib serpentine. SO I need an upper pulley and an idler for a cog belt. But thats OK I have about a year before I need to finish it and tear the engine down for the lower compression slugs.[/QUOT

    I talked to a freind of mine in ohio today that worked at a plastics plant in ohio. he used to get me grafite or bronze impregnated teflon that i made all my suspension bushings out of, he said he can still get me materials. let me know what size we need for these k-frame bushings, I'll get some oversize material and lathe them down to the size needed. Fair nuff deal?
    Hell< I'm not gonna even worry about postage/shipping, I'm getting old and just wanna help out the young guys coming in to replace me and many others, they same way the old guys did for me.

    PS i might be old, BUT, in the last 5 years, I nailed down at least a dozen RT'S at .010 or less in a hand brake car.

      4.10's and a 31 inch tire.

      The 500 inch engine has a small (tiny) roller cam and the power will likely be all done by 5500 rpm

      That is very kind of you. Thank you

      I hope I can get my RT anywhere near that

      Mock up with Tubing in.



      The air comes in from the back of the procharger,.. is compressed and sent thru a tube that goes out the drivers inner fender, along the outside of that inner fender, into the inner cooler and back to the throttle body.

      Mock up done now so that I can paint it and hopefully not have any addition mods required

      Preping for paint...




      Modified shock tower to fit lower engine, Some trimming for the tubing too.



      Transmission pinch weld cut off. Firewall filled in

                    I like your commitment, funny how things can get out of control! The procharger and injection are real stealth, got any more results and photos?
