What's with the math? Is that a 1/4 mile equivalent conversion?

Kinda, sorta. In the ball park for estimation purposes unless it falls off on top like a lot do! Don't mean much till its on paper though.

Nice 1/8 Rick!! What kind of 60 Ft? Is this the new set up??

Lookout come spring. LOL!!

60'-1.647.


The formula is pretty dang accurate.
But still a new low time and speed in the 1/8 for Cougar Jet VI.
That's her name since last April when I put on the wrap.

Steve, this is the same engine that was repaired in March, I was having issues with the
tune and new torque converter.
It has the TFS intake, new cams and long tube headers.

Thanks Rick. Congratulations on a great run. :zbeer: That's a killer 60' :thumbsup:

You'll have to post some pictures of the car with the new wrap.

Unfortunately I can't add that time to the list because it's not a 1/4 mile run and even with the time conversion there is no MPH for the quarter to list with the time.

raced. its 1/8 mile bracket day.

Great 60" NA Rick. I didn't know you had the motor down. What was wrong with it? I've been out of the loop for a while with all the heart surgery stuff and other issues. Sounds like you made some good upgrades. Good luck with it this year.

Hoping to have mine up and running by sometime in April-May if all goes well with my surgery in February.

I'm thinking we'll see 3 NA cars MN12/FN10 cars in the 11's this coming year 2016!! Should be fun. Shake this list up a little bit.

#8 cylinder had blow by.

I changed the intake, cams, headers and the Torque converter.

Hope to see you at summerblast.
Or possibly at the NMRA Maple Grove race in May.

Add the Apten or "Crack Pipe" mod to the rear of the driver's head, and that will be a thing of the past. :grin2:

#7 and #8 are always the cylinders I have problems with; they detonate first when you're tuning, setting the deal for the rest of the engine.

The 4.6 iron block that I recycled had #6, 7, and 8 clearances getting bigger as it went back; #8 was 4 mils over in the middle of the bore, kinda like a barrel. :)
#7 was wider at the top, lol.
All the other ones were close to stock; that had to be heat.

As a contrast, the Teksid engine I bought measured 3.552 -.0001 to 0.0006 inc. on all axes, all the way to the bottom of the sleeve.

It apparently got fed enough quaker state to choke it out, with one imrc open, and one closed.
Judging from the rear end damage of the donor car, it doesn't accelerate very well that way.

I'm not sure on what block Rick has but I do know its a bored/stroked 5.3. Not sure how that translates to the cooling but with the TFS heads on the 2 valve I wouldn't think that would be AS MUCH of an issue. But I'm no expert on building these engines per se or at least the water flow/cooling aspect of them.

It is something for him to definitely look into and could be the issue. I thought most of the cooling issues were related to the 4V motors rather than the 2V's but again, I'm not sure on it. I've never had the issue with my 2V stockers over all the years that I'm aware of. When my stocker went a couple years ago it took out #1 & #2 Cylinders but was the result of a lean condition on spray when the wire came loose from the fuel pump killing fuel at 1000 ft out.

I will be modifying my new teksid block with the mod to insure cooling on the rear cylinders.

Hmm, my barely-13-second pass isn't up there either... :tongue:

Needs headers! And traction! :D
