    Well, that was part of the scheming early on.... sort of like an old recip aircraft fuel enrichment circuit. I still think it's a doable thing, but if we add the second set of nozzles it might as well be the dual inlet style, with the second one spraying a bit of nitrous.... Rog's daughter's dragster is now a 4.6 with a kenne Belle supercharger and a second pump to add fuel volume at WOT. Amazingly simple system, very tuneable, and added a bunch of horsepressure on the big end! Now, if I had as much money as I have spare time and crazy ideas, we could really go fast!!!!

    Believe it or not the 37 Dodge PU is moving under it's own power, licensed and insured and occasionally terrorizing the neighborhood.

    Cade's a year way form getting his license and we're working on getting a 74 Mustang back on the road for him.


    .
    Good news all around, Cade sure did grow up in a hurry. I'll have to get some recent pics of the '57, I must have used too much hot water washing it, the top shrunk!

    I see you have a 82 Camaro listed on your vehicle list. What's the story on that car? I recently picked up an 82 Z28 for cheap late this summer.

    Well, my friends named that one WAC (wild ass camaro) a few years back, and all I've done is a few body mods!!!!!! It's destined for a back half build and a big block. I'll get some recent pictures if it ever warms up again. For now, it seems to have found a permanent spot on my "round to it" list.....

    Kind of a pro stock thing then ? I've been liquidating some of my larger projects lately, right or wrong it sure does shorten the things to do list.

    yeah, kind of that pro street look, but with 9" of engine setback and a ton of body mods! People just shouldn't leave me alone in the shop with no adult supervision and this stuff wouldn't happen!!!

    Well, I seem to remember that you and I got along great, so I'm very glad to see you back on Club Hot Rod. I remember the 700+ horsepower SBC we put together on the Dyno-Sim. Stuff like that is great fun for me.

    I've still got that Dyno Sim specs and parts list stashed away, never now when I might need a big horse mouse motor! I'm really impressed the the mod motor Fords and trying to learn more about them. Been to the dyno shop to see some pulls on a few of them, some awesome numbers for power at the wheels! Do you suppose GM will eventually get around to putting cams in the heads and get rid of all that valve train clutter?

    You know, I had a very good friend in Phoenix who was pretty savvy about business and such. He stated more than one time that none of the auto manufacturers would add 50 cents worth of nickel to the mix for the cylinder blocks to make a better motor, because 2 million motors would equal 1 million dollars, so I suppose that no, GM will not get on the stick with anything that will cost money.

    I was hoping that when the redesigned the small block and came out with the new LS that GM would have put cams in the heads, but I suppose that cost was indeed the factor that prevented it.

    My pal Roger put together a new car (dragster) for his daughter using the Ford Aluminator 4.6 with supercharger and his own new one will be the same set up. Tune up on it is a breeze and between round work is minimal... One thing that really surprised me is that even with the EFI and all the electronics on the car that tuning for changes in barometric pressure during the course of the day is still a major factor! We still have a lot of learning to do on it, but just not having to deal with all the valve train adjustments and issues during an event at least leaves some time for a steep learning curve!

    Long-time friend from the Des Moines area, Dick Gibbs, is putting together a mechanically-injected 392 hemi in a front motor dragster. He has been a Mopar guy all his life and has drag raced Mopars extensively. I got to know him in Phoenix when we both lived there and raced go-karts with our kids. He has just finished construction on his well-insulated and heated garage and is ready to begin on the rail job.

    Tech: I have no doubt that you are correct about the cost narrative reference to nickel in engine blocks, but I expect it goes further. Cars are designed to wear out accomodate new sales. Detroit doesn't want an engine block that will last a million miles. Just like light bulb manufacturers don't want a light bulb that never burns out.

    Designed obsolescence.
