I'm involved in team demolition derby. Our team fields about 12-14 385's per race. Our sport has evolved past your typical backwoods demo derbys and we are constantly looking for lower budget performance upgrades. Likewise, we have accumulated an inventory of parts that quite a few of you on here would be interested in too.
We are looking for rugged, high energy ignition systems that will perform under the abuse that is a part of our sport.
We are always searching for cylinder heads, intakes, and bottom end assemblies. We prefer C8VE and C9Ve heads because it is faster, easier, and cheaper for our engine guy to port out our exhausts.
We are playing around with different bottom end combinations too. We like the power that we can achieve from the flat top pistons, but the lower compression mid-70's pistons seem to keep the engines from getting super hot by the end of the heats.
I would just like to be able to see and compare the different components that are available.
Plus, my engine guy is totally computer illiterate
, as I am somewhat assembly illiterate. I have trouble communicating a lot of what I learn on here into terms that this guy can understand so seeing people in person would help a lot.
As I mentioned, I have parts that I would also like to sell. I have 2 D00E cast CJ intakes that I recently aquired. I don't know what they're worth, if anything at all. I come across a lot of the basic 'stuff' that I see mentioned in this auction block, a lot.
