NEW PB [email protected] Enjoying the 545 in the coupe!

I am just getting used to the 545 in the coupe and recently got a chance to run it at the strip and on a chassis dyno. Would be interested in hearing from guys with a similar set up.
Factory 460 block
Scat 4.5in stroker crank
6.8in Eagle H-beam rods
Probe pistons
Comp cams XR292R roller cam
Blue thunder chev exhaust aluminium heads
Edelbrock Victor manifold
BG 1050 Race Demon
Try-Y headers into 2.5in twin system

Car weighs about 3750lbs
Recently ran 7.025 @99.15mph with a 1.647 60ft

That's a cool looking ride. I really like the nice clean engine bay. Are those Australian Fords like your car the same as a Torino here in the US? It seems like header availability would be a little tough with right hand drive...

Someone bring me a towel. I just drooled all over myself like a baby. Love seeing rides that clean. Being here in the states it is different to see being Mustnag from doors forward and Torino from roof back. Great job on the car.

Couple more pix.
Drags was a few years ago with 460ci, D0VE heads and 242 hydraulic cam. Best 12.02 @115mph.
Fighter pix has "not" been photoshopped to make it that colour, I turned up on the day and they were using plane for photo shoot at the air base!!!

Very nice mate .. I went and got perf ford mag the other week just to see your car . Quite a nice setup . Looks Tough as .

462 RWHP is very tough too . Just curious .The 2.5" pipes i thought may be bit small. What size extractors do you have in tri-y's? I have similar setup and use 3.5" pipes ,tri-y's 2" to 2.75" to 3.5" merge collectors . Same cam and SCJ heads with 1050 Dominator + 521/ C4 10:1 pump fuel streeter :lol:

JC10000RPM- the Probe pistons are part no.12397-030 and have a dish of 18.5cc.

Gregaust- The headers are the pacemaker try-y (2in primary and 2-1/4 secondary) and have hade the flange changed to suit the chev exhaust ports and collectors are now 3in. The 2-1/2in system is still on there from the old 460, an upgrade is definately the next item on the shopping list.
