    My car in 1993 had steel SI heads,ported by Gessler,308 solid cam,11.50 compression,3400 pds with driver,410 gears,3500 stall.The car went 10.27 in EnglishTown and 10.22 at Atco.Bend a stock rod,so for 1994 I went with aftermarket rods,roller cam,little bigger cam then the 308 solid.Same heads,same weight about 11.50 compression,the car went a best of 9.73 and 135 mph,Using the same car ,back half,went with S2 TE heads,494 CI,stock crank.some fiber glass,the hood and trunk and doors.The car is now around 3050 pds with driver.With this combo it has run a best of 9.12 147 mph.Two years at Cecil in Maryland,it went 9.17 9.16 and 9.15 with problems on the 4 run.The weld for the splash shield in the oil pan brook-off,got into the oil pump,brook the distributor pin,the car stopped and that was it for about a year.Had the short block redone and this year we went to NC for the GN meet.The track is 1/8 of a mile and the car went 5.8 , 119 mph,with a 1.32 short time.Our regular short time goes around 1.25.My son and I figured that we can maybe get around 9.00 now, maybe a little better [hope],Bruno.
