I'm going to update this thread with pictures as the car progresses.



Goal: 9.60's reliably. the car will spend most of its time at the drag strip. But, I am not doing anything so extreme that I cannot drive it on the street, or take it to the local roadcourses. With that in mind, I am keeping the stock IRS. I am going to run ET Streets, or the new MT drag radial (they are actually outperforming the et street)



Ok, so here is what I am doing right now



-TEC built Twin Turbo's. I've been asked to keep the specs disclosed so don't ask



-Custom manifold with dual TiAL 40mm wastegates.

-6 Point cage NHRA legal to 8.50's



I will run the PowerFC for now, 850/1600 injectors with dual walbro pumps.



As soon as the fabrication is complete I am pulling out the motor and race porting it. It will be a copy of the motor in demetrious's drag car (minus the whole Alch thing )



Intake manifold will be left stock at the molment. A sheetmetal intake mani is in the works, but i cannot afford this at the molment. Mabye by the season? Doubtful though.



Trans Will be a Jerico DR-4 dog box. 4speed, straight cut gears, no BS. jerico is building my tranny right now, should be done in "3 to 5 weeks." The shifter will not fit the stock location. It is the same lenght back as the stock shifter but will sit on the drivers side of the console. A hole will have to be cut and a peice of tinning will cover it back up. I already have the adapter kit, driveshaft and 3 clutches. I am going to run the ACT xtreme PP and sintered Iron Disc.



Rear end is a TII unit with stock axles (again the budget is coming into play)



I'm still running Van's Feed IC, but the endtanks are modified for use of 3 inch pipes.



There might be a NX wet Kit to help these turbos spool. It depends on the deal I can get, and if the car really needs it.



I think that is everything I am changing.



It's going to be one hell of a car. Power output should be way above 500rwhp at 15lbs, and there is PLENTY of room to go up!

What series do you intend to race with Bobby?



That transmission is illegal in any class that uses DOT tires.
