Congrats, Frank! Nice job by all!
Thank you for the information regarding vacuum and the use of the Peterson pump! This lets me know that I can do away with my vacuum pump during my build and use an oil pump with vacuum.
Thanks again everybody! I'll be spending all winter working on mating this engine to my chassis. I still need a set of headers and definately some wheelie bars.. So thats a trip back to my chassis guy.. I'm hoping for early spring track rentals to work out the bugs. If I'm done sooner? I may load it up and drive south for some track testing. I'm hoping for shipment before Christmas!
Santa better feed those reindeer they are pulling a big load between your motor & Doug's. Good thing the block is aluminum!
Congrats Frank, that's a strong piece, with very useable rpm ranges for what your doing.
And Rob, great looking intake.. what's the tab for a duplicate?
Jim if you have to ask you don't want to go fast! Speed is priceless! All kidding aside PM Rob for a quote, very reasonable for the quality.
I'll be sending you my convertor for a stall change!! :laugh:
I may have Santa drop it off at your shop.. The size of the box will be too big to explain when it's not for the wife! :spank:
is Santa on his way??ray:
I'm ready to receive the load from Santa anytime pal.
Ya, I was talking to Mike the other day, apparently that manifold is a Scotty thing.. as he spec'ed the sizes and volumes for it.. so it should be bought thru Scotty..
From what I understand.
And when anything is sitting on a 6K block, price is relative..
I will probably actually build an EFI deal, that fits under the hood.. that way I can get the parachute off the hood.
If you want that intake finished to your specs then you get it right from me. If you want it to Scotty's specs, then I still make it but Scotty will perform his own "magic" and finish the ports.
If you want to do an EFI intake, I make those also.
Thanks for the info Rob
Very nice looking intake Rob. I really wish I hired you when I had the chance. Anyone else that can do what Rob can or if you know someone, have them call me. I may just make room for you or them at TA Performance.
The amazing thing is Rob, is that you love doing it. That's what I love about you. And your a very nice guy as well.
Scotty is the MAN!!!
Rob, that is some serious power there! I have a question for you, have you played around with Nitrous before ? I would love to see an engine like that on three kits :0 , I bet that would turn a few heads! Good job.. Sincerely Gary M.
I am not the engine builder. I only made the intake.
If you want to talk nitrous.......Scotty is the N02 expert
