    Re: BUILD THREAD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's coming off the street and becoming a purpose built drag car.

    I'm getting rid of the EFI and going with a World 460 (13.5:1)small block with a carb.

    I will run all motor for bracket competition (should run 9s) and nitrous when I want to go fast (8s).

    I'm keeping the current tranny and rear end (C4, 4500 stall, transbrake and a Detroit Locker with 3.73s and 31 spline Mosers)

    The first part of the job is to start taking off all the crap I don't need and selling the parts.

    Re: BUILD THREAD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well . . I started today by doing some sewing . . . . lol. The seam in the top was coming out.

    The first step is going to be taking out all the "street" weight. (most of the interior, all the accessories, the gas tank, basically anything I can do to shed weight).

    Then its time to sell my blower, intake, power pipe, a couple of engines, my old TKO tranny, my injectors, TB, MAS, yada yada yada, which should finance the shortblock and maybe the intake and carb. I'm keeping my heads, but having them freshened.

    Once I get the new motor in, I can take things from there. I'm going to have to upgrade to a 9 second cage and get my NHRA 9 second license, too.

    Re: BUILD THREAD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dude . . . you can't do this type of transformation without SHEARS!!!! How else are you going to get rid of all those pesky AC lines, coolant lines, and power steering lines?!?!? :naughty:

    Yeah . . I love that tool box. I got it last week . . my neighbor was going to throw it out.

    I'm going to clean up the bay and also do some fab work. I'm going to weld a concave panel into the passenger side strut tower so the big headers will clear. I'll probably also have to open up the tunnel a bit on the passenger side. I might paint it while I'm in there . . it all depends on how well it cleans up.
