Thanks man, I've been watching your thread. Yeah, I just took one of the tunes out of the Sloppy wiki and my buddy has been helping me street tune it. I got the driveshaft back from balancing so that will be going back in this weekend.

I really wanted a full exhaust on the car so this is what happened. 3" with 2 Magnaflows and now there are moments where I can't tell if the car is running

Well after melting a piston in cylinder 7...we are back.

New 5.3 block
Gen IV rods and flat top pistons

The motor has a few hundred miles on it now I will continue to put more on it before it will see some time on the dyno for tuning

Well broke it again but it will be back again


I did manage to make some passes with this one being my best. No launching since I wanted to be able to drive the car home. It trapped 120+ consistently


This was my first time down the track and I took it extremely easy off the line

I signed up for some roll racing at Pocono Raceway a few weeks ago and the car did pretty well. This was at 15psi so it's somewhere around 600whp
