Amazing....


This setup would benefit well from oversized fuel rails, huge injectors like 60 or 80 lb/hr, oversized intake runners and throttle body, FAST easy EFI 2.0 multi port retro fit, a larger pair of turbos, and a water meth injection kit using those two injectors and that small rail directly in front of the throttle body.

But I digress. So much work and effort would be so much better spent on applying TT to an LS or newer engine.

There was a rare option intake on Tuned Port TPI TT Callaway.
I recall it was about 1988-89.
Maybe 5 casted made. It was nicknamed the Mailbox intake.
Predecessor to the LT1-LT4.
It had a Rouned appearance.
Much like Tony Mammos Mini Ram.
The Maibox intake was good for 100 Hp more bolted on.
Have to remember it was 1980s tech and no aftermarket blocks existed.
They all used Chevy 4-bolt Truck blocks.

It's customer wants and desires.
Custom race builds are up $200k in shops as you know with labor.
Most do not want old Tech.

Actually 1 guy doing miracles with SBC.
ONLY ON FACEBOOK.
CHAD SPIERS.
He has cranked out drag SBC pushing 900 Hp 1-4bbl No power adder.
He is A Pro Head porter.
I think he is the best alive.
Puts Mammo to shame.

You should go visit a raceway this summer. See what is out there. See what people are really running with. Ya know? Unplug from your mind and get a little dose of reality in you.

I already know what's out there Wiz here in lllinois, Wisconsin & Indiana.
Since It has been so dead for months and months on end here on DC I decided not to hog the Forum with Drag Racing Events.
Gunny Loves Road Racing along with most others.

Every Track in the Midwest is Jam Packed with No Prep Time clocks off drag racing events.
The MAIN FEATURES IN 2019 !
STREET OUTLAWS !

Run what you Brung....Fuck it don't matter !

That's right buddy. So just take your C4 out there and get a baseline on the prepped track. You are always talking about these huge burnouts and traveling over 100mph in that car, so why not? And then come home and make a change before you go back. And slowly you can at least call your C4 your racecar as you chase better times at each point on the slips. I have already set the racecar bar pretty low with my 357hp DD. And your C4 you claim to be a better drag racing chassis. So go prove it to us. Go get and show us some 60' times. That doesn't take thousands of HP. just a good chassis setup and some sticky tires. Me and the red C6 are stuck around 1.8s. And easy time to beat.

Wiz, some folks have a hard time with Money, reality, fantasy and the real world. There are different classes for a reason. When I started road racing it was in a H/Production Bugeye Sprite. The lowest SCCA class. 948 cc's of rompin' stomping racecar. It was slow by racecar standards but when there are 40 cars on a track running down the 5000' main straight wide open at 120 MPH or so trading paint and mirrors it's a rush. 40 cars trying to get the best line to a 90 degree turn 1. It's as much a race as any class.

Next came a 1296cc Triumph Spitfire F/Production and quite a bit faster than the H/P cars. Still 40 of us all racing our asses off and a big a thrill as the B/M Corvettes.

Next came the D/P TR5. 2500 cc's of faster racing still. Same folks, same racing and the same thrill as the Bugeye.

SCCA D/P Porsche was next and it was faster than the Triumph. The Porsche is the one that I took to IMSA GTU class. Less than 2.5 liters but a lot more leeway in the power, suspension and speed. We still respected the H/P guys because we knew that their rush was the same as ours. 25 laps around a 2.5 mile course takes time and you're always on your game or you're in the runoff area, the bushes or you're trying out your roll bar. You're supposed to keep the shiny side up and the greasy side down.

I don't see drag racing as any different. There are classes for a reason. Learn to drive on a good reliable and fast car and keep moving up as your finances and desire will allow. Many folks stayed in H/P all their racing days and still had the same shaky hands after the race as the "big boys". It's a physiological adrenalin rush regardless of the class.

Your car is turning good times for what you have and you may want to stay right there and that's just fine. You may want to move up and go a bunch faster and that's alright also. Your car and your call.

We might have a self declared street racer on here that would be totally lost and surely dead if he tried to jump into a funny car. Learn to drive whatever makes YOU happy. There's no sense in trying to be the fastest because there will ALWAYS be someone faster. Keep on keeping on and race your racecar however you feel. You're doing it right. You're doing it within your budget and I'm certain there's food on your table, the kids are well dressed and you're a responsible adult. Good job!!

Just because the Donkmaster is Black and your White Wiz does not mean he has a Bigger Dick than You.
