History This was my baby. Best pass in the 1/4 mile was 12.070 at 114 in Las Vegas for the TV show Pinks All Out. Race fuel, MT Drag Radials up front, no exhaust, locked up rear suspension, no rear seat or passenger seat. 114 degree weather at 2200 ft in altitude. Best street trim pass was 12.4 at 110 at Speedworld in Arizona. Full interior, full exhaust, 91 octane fuel, street tires. Both best passes were still with gremlins in the build and tune. Car could have ran much better with issues resolved and a good tune.

Everything. Whipple 2.3L supercharger pushing through a MAP water to air intercooler feeding a balanced rotating assembly with a CompCams XP grind cam, double roller timing chain, Diamond forged and coated pistons, ARP studs everywhere, Clevite bearings, oversized valves in ported and polished heads with 105# springs on stock retainers and guides. TOG headers, custom intake with a Northstar throttle body, LS1 MAF, and 4" intake. Transmission was built with hardened input and output shafts, 7/8" chain, 2.69 gears, upgraded clutches and upgraded torque converter. I'm sure there's more...

Suspension

I know they were American Racing wheels and you see them from time to time. They were 16" wheels.
