Yeah someone did before. But it'll all be redone. The fans, alternator and ignition will be all on a switch panel with push button start.. Also a fuel kill switch in case of an accident..

And we race on 1/4 mile oval.

Got it running.. It runs really really good.. Sounds very healthy.. Had the valve cover off to check the valve train.. Extremely clean..

Great job, buddy!!! I'm glad the top end of the motor looked clean.

Congrats on getting a start Chris - nothing wrong with an auto for the track you going to be on .... can you drop a wheel size to make it a little more "snappy"?

It'll hold in first gear and be hitting rev limiter at the end of the straight away..

Plenty peppy.

They do run well when you get a bit of r's on them. Not generally horrible to work on either. Especially when you strip out a lot of the extra stuff...

You are brave with that airtex fuel pump. Otherwise pretty damn cool.
