Got started in June this year with a new motor 328 SBC with 15 Degree GM heads. When to PINKS All Out in Gateway but had trouble with the car, fuel and ignition. We rebuilt the fuel system completely and changed the MSD after fighting with many problems through out the summer. In August we finally got the car running on all cly and thats when we started to make head way. This year the car went 8.66 at 156 in the 1/4 and 5.47 at 127 in the 1/8. We raced with a group out of ILL called the IMSM the last part of there season. That was alot of fun .400 pro light and 8.60 cap with no electronics. It was still a costly year though hurt the motor in Oct and we are going to need a new short block for next year. In the mean time we will put the 326 Buick Head Motor back in and see what happens.
Tally of parts this year was
1 set Pistons
1 set Rods
1 Oil Pan

Racepak is you best friend.
Small cubic inch motors make you look like you have no clue what your doing.
