    Can this car be driven daily(short and long distance) on that motor? I'm just curious.

    Car is built for the track. It also runs on elky. But with it's gearing I'm sure it would be a nice street ride. 3.70s are street able.I beleave that's what the rear gear is now. And i don't remember what Boost he is running.

    No...no video...sorry.....and someone asked how much boost....hard to get perferct reading ...but...usually mid 20's.....and we did NOT put on the big turbo yet...they changed thier minds...so sunday was still working on the tune with the bigger port nozzles.....but what a way to go into winter......

    2 bolt mains? so? Chevy 194-292 6 bangers have SEVEN main bearings. the only issue with them in High Horsepower situations is Torsional Rigidity... THey need to be balaced perfectly and have a very good Dampener on them... or they like to break cranks.. usually at about the 5th Main Cap...

    Thanks T6, It was a treat watching Bill make that run, he's an awesome driver. For me working with Leo and the crew, talkin' the changes we need to make and wonder why the @#^&#37;$#%% thing won't go this time, is where the fun is. It's really beginning to wake up and Bill puts on a great show smoking the tires and wandering around the pits afterward, his eyes rolling around, mumbleing something about, "WoW, thErE suuRRe seeMMs too BEE a LOT of AlcHOOhall Fumes IN tHhERE". (Sorry Billy, the devil made me do it!)

    Aw T6, what could that possibly hurt? Might feel good! Have you seen the January 2008 issue of Hot Rod? I was going to dump the subscription post card in the trash till I saw the Bonneville write up. Love that old iron. I'm surprised they didn't have a picture of the Ferguson's streamliner. 300+ with a Jimmy ain't shabby. Don told me it ran on nitro and exhaust valves.

    OUTSTANDING!

    Its all about the 6's boys. Keep up the good work, you're making room for us 6 cylinder lovers everywhere.

    Leo may need to write a new book, it seems some new tricks have been learned since the original. Oh yeah, I'd buy it.
