Looks good.. yeah should sound killer.. should be alot of torque, but you can make that little tire hook.. digital 7 does the trick.. Jack said your coming after me and I should watch out..I know you are... you should be making more power than me with your killer set of heads and intake.. you should be in the 8's this year.. tell Jack I will give him some of my pontiac secrets one day.LOL..

Yes, stock suspention, stock wheel well- not miny tubbed. Car is built so you can run NHRA stock or Superstock. Car has a direct bolt in Moser 9 in rear. It has stock location shocks and they are NOT coil overs. It has the OEM front and rear springs.It has stock A-arms (orignal GM) It has stock trailing arms (but they are boxed for strength) It has a Quay replacement torque arm,rear sway bar,and wheelie bars and a chute...but I may never need that!

Jeff, I read your build up... You have lots of Killer parts that I do not have. I have a 3/16 ring pack, less compression, you have a bigger Bore, 4-7 swap, more lift,lighter crank,Bigger valves. I know yall will pick up tenth or two over the winter. My motor is low buck motor to get my feet wet again. Jack told me he was messing with you...LOL. I'll just be happy if its running BEFORE the frist race!!!It looks like I may try to run, the at the Grove and both Cecil races, The rest are a bit far unless I get a better truck.I will have to see how testing goes...I will know better after a few runs.

The car was 3380 when I ran the best in 03. I will have to add weight to car as per the NASTOOT.com rules. Its based on CID. More Cid more weight. I will have to add about 220 lbs to the car total...I have started already by adding about 30 lbs to the Driver already (since 03)!!! I figured bulking up the driver worked for Langer...the bigger HE gets the faster the car goes!!!(lol)
