Rob, would they let a guy run if he had the bottle pulled? Haven't ever run something like that, so I have no idea.

Pulled? As in out of the car? Yes. At least they do around these parts anyways.

NOS

So far I only test and tune. The boost will be 75-100hp max.

I run nos in my Cobra, 427FE but not much because it really isn't needed either.

All they can do is tell me no and to pull the bottle and the lines will just look pretty. But on Super Nationals weekend it's pretty much a free for all up here.

Also, because the bottom end IS still a 2bolt, something that will be remedied over the winter, and the rods are ford hi po rods with ARP bolts and mains are ARP studs...... I was thinking with the extra blower pulleys and can keep it under driven so the boost still stays at the 5-7 lb range with just a light shot at the end to see how much it actually cools it down. I have o2 sensors but I'm running 2 pyrometers to watch the temp. I prefer pyrometers over o2s when it come to heat. but the combination of the two will let me know if I'm leaning out at the end and how hot I'm running.

But it's easier to put the plate on now than after it's all set up, lol. Like I said... all they can do is say no. lol......

When it's time to actually try and race someone without looking silly going so slow.... then I will get my rule book back out and read up on what I can do. Till then it's just experimenting

Nitrous is addictive ....I had it on my old Cleveland and I miss the switch. Playing with the idea of putting it on top of the 552, but I need to run it in the 1/4 and see what it does. If it's close to a point, like say I run 11.1s in the quarter, I'll give it a little taste to get in the 10's.....

Looking better and better, sir. Get that beast done.

That sounds like a TON of fun!

I have a Big Shot plate system for mine. I'll put it on eventually after I get used to the car itself. Keep it up!! You are almost there.

...it must be nice to have Summit so close. I have family up in Cleveland and I stopped at the Talmadge Summit on the way back in June. I've been to the one south of Atlanta too many times to count. I wish they were right down the street from me!! I could spend a day in that place just checking out all of the unboxed on the shelf parts. I love that place!

That looks great sticking out of the hood. I love the fogger setup!

Are you going to paint the block? But I guess you can't see the red and blue with the hood shut.

ppaint

actually, the alum block mount plate covers that whole section. That's why it is the way it is. So I'm not too worried. If some red peeks out I will just touch it up then, lol...

That completely went right by me. I didn't think about that.

While degree-ing cam I was running into a "clicking" coming from the lifter/rocker areas. Nothing regular. The noise would move around or not even click at all for several rotations. Very frustrating. Long story short, the new rocker geometry was off from the rockers I had and the pushrods would click when going from full closed to opening position. Note the gold (new rocker) in pic of degree-ing and silver (rockers I already had) in the later photo....



So I am going back together now. The next pic shows just how close the Hampton blower was to fitting on the Hampton intake. Look at the rear blower mount holes to the intake stud holes....



One last note... look at the casted build date on the bottom of the blower I removed......



5/22/67.............. Now that's a classic!!! And still builds great boost!!!

So now I'm off to the trailer to get back to work. It's coming along but a little slower than I would have liked.

You all have a good one and I'll be back!!!

Ok, intake on and cooling system buttoned up. Hit Summit today for a new dizzy, wires and LOTS of fittings to do plumbing. Also got the twin NO2 tank holder today.

Will get distributor in and blower on tomorrow. Mounting the injection hat/nitrous plate combo will be a little trickier due to all the nos lines crossing where the injection lines go.

Then it's mounting the fuel pump, filter, surge tank, primer and running all the lines ....... SIMPLE!
Coming along. Getting anxious and a little scared..... Running blower was new to me.... now tuning the injection will be new to me. Still have to mount 2 short pipes on headers to run evac hoses too and to mount the pyrometers and the O2 sensor. Those WERE mounted in the custom exhaust pipes that I removed for testing. Would like to mount them back on if everything works out and I know they won't create a back pressure problem.

Will update soon with more photos........
