Here was the one issue I did find. Right in the middle of the valves there is paper thin aluminum and same on the one side of the plug hole. This was causing boost issues and giving misfires. Took the heads to get debured (should have done this when they were new) and gave them a new valve grid.



Rod bearings once again looking fresh. Didn't even wear off the coating. I did replace these as I was already there and they are a cheap part to replace. But could have easily ran them another season.


Wrapped the logs and also added vbands for easier maintenance in the future.


Safety wired the log bolts. Had some come lose on me during the summer.

New filters that are much better fitting and more possible total cfm's


Forgive the dirty car as its under some fab work at this point. Built an air box for testing some of the air temps to see if it makes any difference.


Air box lid. None of this stuff is final product until it proves itself to be effective via data.

Built some shrouds for the heat exchangers. These will force the air to have to go through the cores. Again just some prototype stuff to see if they make any differences.

Here are so more air flow cooling testing stuff i'm trying out.

Now waiting to decide what I'm doing for a trans, T56 has no chance with 4000 lbs car with a 3.0 rear end gear and 5500 rpm clutch dumps...........

Well I got the TH400 in the car and went 9.6@144@10psi.

Still lots of data to be collected but heading in the right direction after a painful last few months trying to find multiple issues.

The trans has been flawless.  Wish I bought it the day I bought the car. It has surpassed all my expectation and makes a 6 speed a thing of the past for me personally.
