Dreamer, maybe in a 1800 lb dragster 4.90, did you also notice that's a 3 3/4" toilet bowl.
Sounds like you have been doing it all wrong David. :P

Zip.

That's one I would have to see for myself.
I have ran 540's for years and a pretty good one also and the best I ran in a 3600 lb door car was 5.68.

He should show these guy's how to build engine's.

Default badass 540

I sent him a couple of messages telling him he had a typo...he responded it was no typo, just a good motor!

He will not respond back now.
