    Congrats Doug, its going to be a loooong winter for you I am sure If I looked around here I could find this info but I will ask here. What intake and carb set-up did you go with and do you have any idea how much your new engine weighs fully dressed?

    Nice very nice! With that cam it will have some street manner to!

    I hope you will have some great times this upcoming race season with this engine!

    Maybe its time to upgrade your trans and rear, to be sure it will withstand the Torque of this Nast Beast!

    I run a TA SP2 that was hogged out and equalized by Scotty back in 1995. Carb is an 1150 Dominator model 9377 that we got from Gary Williams (he does Pro-Stock carbs) when I first got my 525", around 2003. Don't know what it weighs. I guess I'll find out how much lighter it is when I weigh the car. Race weight was 2815 in Bowling Green this year. Backup 494" motor had no girdle or block fill so that's the comparison I can make.

    My car hasn't been driven on the street since the former owner was driving every day back in the 1980s. I'd get thrown in jail for driving it on the street now! The entire drivetrain was built to be bomb-proof almost 20 years ago. Ford 9-inch rear, 4-inch aluminum driveshaft, SFI certified trans case. It's all good. I did buy a Superglide case and tailhousing recently so my UltraCase/UltraBell/Ultra Tailhousing powerglide can become my backup.

    Hi Doug,
    Scotty called me as well, your right he was like a little kid with a new toy. Made me feel great as well to hear his excitement and then have him tell me how much he liked all the parts especially the block. Scotty called a catalog engine. He loved it.
    On another note, he felt he could put a car in the 6.50's now with nitrous.

    I was going to put up a 'shocked' emoticon, but i'm not because these things will handle a lot of power and I can't wait to see someone pull a 6 with one.

    I would love to see Scotty back in a Buick(especially a 6.50 sec.one). That would probably bring more people to the Buick camp.

    I saw the dyno sheets that Scotty posted. I am guessing you are going to have to change your signature soon!!!

    Actually, I believe I've done the "fireball/rods hanging out" trick against Rick Miller, but not against you!
    Hey Chock, I'll make you a deal, I'll try and keep the rods on the inside and you try to keep your car from rolling off the trailer and squishing your head! Deal? (Man, I'm STILL getting mileage out of that one!)

    Well, it's on a tractor trailer, headed North! Delivery is scheduled for Monday and once it's in the car, it's just a matter of waiting for Atco to re-open for the season and steal a nice day. Today actually would've been perfect...sunny and 50* with humidity at 40% and the barometer at 30.50....daaaaammmnn!

    No Grasshopper, a 14 is a Seagrams 7, and 7 up. You don't hang out too much with Dougie and Moses do you?
