Thanks for all the welcomes. I am currently resding in travelers rest SC and I love as I love the mountain life style!
As fir my numbers I am very happy with them too...You should of seen me when I got the dyno sheet, I tried to cut a back flip, which is kinda funny! Ever seen a fat man try and cut a flip!
I plan on taking it to the next level soon as I have all the parts except the pistons. Right now I am aking those numbers on a stock block just a good exhaust sytem, upgraded Fuel Pump, 39lb injectors, and a really good/safe tune, and
lots of Boost
My next step is to build the motor:
~4.2L F150 Crank <have>
~351W 5.956 H Beam Forged Rods <have>
~Wiesco .40 over 8.5:1 compression forged pistons <in the mail as we speak>
~212/224 512 lift Cam <have>
~ Port and Polished Heads <have>
~ Port and Polished Lower Intake With IMRCs Removed <currently work on>
~1.7 Stud Mount Roller Rockers <on Order>
~Port and Polished Upper intake (cut & weld) <have>
That is the basic set up for the engine, I have most of the parts, getting together is now what will taking place come febuary. I have to make sure the motor has a good platform from which to launch all that power. I dropped the 7.5 in favor of a 8.8 with 3.73:1 Gears. I also need to finish installing the following for my suspension:
~Eibach Drag Launch Springs
~KYB Shocks and Struts
~Upper/Lower Control Arms
That should get it to the ground, but my clutch and tranny blew up so I am dropping in a Astro Performance T5 and it is rated for about 550 RWTQ and the clutch is was thrown in from the guy I bought it from! As a matter of fact I got alot of my parts used from various people and I had to be very patient. This will be the total culmination of about two years of planning and saving....Over all it will be a nice little set up! My 1/4 mile times will really drop drastically. The numbers I have now really should be lower, but last time I ran the car it was hot as hell, I had literally pulled it off the dyno and ran it odwn the track, and totally stock suspension! I am sure now with the new tranny, clutch, and suspension it will be much better...Probably mid 12's, the power is there and now I am get it to the ground..Yet I regress I am hoping for 450+ to the wheels and mid to low 11's....Well that is just the plan for now...
I appriciate the warm welcome and look foward to being a valuable and productive member of the board!
