Old numbers were 323 hp, 327 tq.

TFS intake, TFS heads, 90mm maf, 3.5" intake tube, 75 mm throttle body (too small), Bullet custom cams, 12.5/1 comp ratio,
big bore/stroker 5.3 Liter, Eagle crank, eagle rods, SHM 1 7/8"-3" long tubes, 4500 stall converter, 4:56 gears. E-85 for fuel.

This has been running since April 2015, but there were issues with the tune, then life got in the
way last year, FIL had open heart surgery and cancer surgery, recovery was eight months in my house.

Now waiting for the season opener in Bradenton.

I'm looking to buy a F350 to tow the heap.

I can post pictures on TCCOA FB in the morning.

Congrats on the new numbers Rick! Set up looks really good to get to those 11's NA.

Sounds Like you had a year about the same as my last 2+. Hope you are getting along better now. Waiting on my appointment Thursday to see if I have to have additional surgery on my neck and shoulder.

Hoping I can get all this stuff done, back to work and get this car back together.

Good Luck at Brandenton. We'll be pulling for you!

Why was this car entered as a stock eliminator car in Bradenton?

You sir are the most blatant cheater I have ever seen in my life. You should be completely ashamed of yourself for running such a cheated up car and stealing the #1 qualifying position.

Illegal intake
Illegal heads
Illegal MAF
Illegal intake tube
Illegal throttle body
Illegal cams if they have any more than .472/.473 valve lift and I bet they do
Illegal pistons
Illegal bore size
Illegal stroke length
Illegal crankshaft

And that's just what you've admitted to in this thread, there is likely still more.

Anyone that knows anything about stock eliminator knows how blatantly illegal you are. To be a legal stocker you'd have to have the unmodified 94-95 intake manifold and throttle body on there. You'd have to have all the stock inlet tube and airbox, or you could remove it but you can't replace it with anything else. You'd have to have the original cylinder heads and no porting, only a good valve job and minimal decking to get to the minimum chamber volume. You'd have to have the stock pistons or one of the 3 approved replacements that DO NOT raise the compression ratio. You can't have a stroker, you can't have the bore size that large, there is no approved aftermarket crankshaft. Cams can't have any more lift than stock. There is no way in hell a legal 4.6 Cougar stocker is going to run anywhere remotely what you ran. CHEATER!

I'm glad you edited that before I did.

Really Rick? For one thing I can't believe the race officials let you get away with that; on the other hand why did you even enter a class you clearly weren't qualified for?

I'd really like to hear your side of what happened out there.

There were no rules, just enter in the class the car fits.

My cougar fit into O/SA.

That's the class I ran.

Danner is being nonplussed.

The reason is lost me.

After all, it was just an expensive bracket race.

Tech was a normal safety inspection and a look under the hood to make sure it was a Mercury engine in a Mercury body of the correct year.

My opinion, he owes me an apology or should be banned.

If that doesn't happen, then we all know the kind of person we are dealing with.

Your car doesn't even BEGIN to fit O/SA! Had there been another O/SA car paired with you it wouldn't have been a bracket race, it would have been a heads up run against you and your CHEATER CAR!

I know what kind of person YOU are, a CHEATER!

You wouldn't have the nerve to try and enter it as an O/SA car at an NHRA event because you know you'd get caught there!

http://www.nmcadigital.com/dl/rules/sss.pdf

"All rules and classification will be based off the current year NHRA and IHRA rules and classification guide with the exception of; Fuel Check will not be a technical requirement. "

"No modifications, which alter the car from factory stock, are permitted unless they are specifically allowed in NHRA/IHRA rules, or as authorized by the NMCA rules committee."

"Note: It is ultimately the competitor’s responsibility to familiarize themselves with the NMCA class requirements as well as all NHRA safety requirements. The competitor agrees they bear the ultimate responsibility when it comes to safety and how it complies with the NMRA and NHRA rule books"
