I believe he's still running the 557" Cobra Jet head combo. He and Rick trade off, I believe.

Thanks guys !!! Last night definitely turned out better than I had hoped. I really went out to try my spragless converter with my 4.71 gear & see how it would respond. I ran a 4.29 gear at POA. The car at Pinks All out was off about .1 on all the numbers. The finish line rpm (1/4 mile) had dropped from 7200 to 6800. I was chalking most of that up due to the Hoosiers having a 104" rollout compared to my old Goodyears with 102" rollout. Plus I was having problems with the car moving while doing my burn out at MIR.
So last night definitely proved Mustang Sally likes the 4.71 gear. It also tightened the converter up on the gear change which was nice. I had a best of 1.16 60' last night the rest were 1.17 or 1.18 depending on lane.Car was running 5.37 to 5.39 depending on lane. So I was pleased with that considering the best it has been was 5.32 in real good November air. The car was also picking the front tires up about 6" last night which was something new. It usually is about 1"-2".
John, it was hell switching the 557 between the dragster & Mustang Sally each round...
