    Finally i have had time to start working on the car an getting things going.


    when i got the car it was pretty rough.

    Transmission was trash
    electrical was crap
    suspension was done poorly
    and much more.


    here is some pics of it right now.

    I had it on the dyno an made 427rwtq through an auto at 5000rpms. For some reason the the converter kept unlocking.

    It should be 500+at the wheels at 10psi non intercooled

    I was hoping to get a novi2k on it an try to get 700+. Now not sure if I want to continue the project haha.

    It has a little bit of a surge at times but still sounds pretty dang mean with some cam behind the blower.

    Sweet. Are you running a single disc converter? 700rwhp is super serious from an auto, whats the specs on your build?

    Yeah it is a single I talked to percision industries about making it into a muti it's like 360-400

    It's the 298 stroker from livernoise-can't give you my whole break down due to gambling factors hahah

    Yeah for sure the single disc is your problem. I was blowing through my converter when I was close to 500rwhp and went with a PI triple disc and problem solved. that price for an upgrade it super cheap, I had to buy a whole new one and it ran close to $1,200.

    700rwhp from a 298 based 2v motor is going to require 20+ psi and nitrous through an auto, fyi. That type of power through an auto is 8-9 sec 1/4 mile potential. These auto's just chew up power on dyno's like crazy

    Oh for sure is what it will take to hit those numbers.

    You think the converter would unlock during use on the street?

    I have some other questions that I need answered to. Do you have a phone number I could send you some pics on for some help?

    I'm redoing the interior right now an trying to keep my expense low as my girl just lost her job. Makes things hard to have a toy an support a family as well.

    Idk man I'm trying to be a dad. I'm really not trying to spend a lot of money on it.

    All that would be left is send the converter off to performance industries get a multi disc installed. Then paint an body.
