Thanks for the welcome.

I threw this post up earlier when I stumbled across this site and I was kinda in a rush....
Allow me to explain a little more about myself and the car...

I live in Springfield, MA (for anyone in the area who ever needs help/ wants to meet up). I have been building cars and drag racing since I was 16. This is my latest creation, and while it does run REALLY good, its far from done.

I run a new brand of Nitrous Oxide products called Low Key Auto. Many of our components are manufactured in house, or at least within the US....no cheap chinese crap.

Some of the fastest cars in NE are running my products, including Shawn Cassady who owns the first import to ever run on PINKS! Blue MkIII Supra, also fastest 7M powered supra in the country with a current record of 9.4@148mph with a junk convertor

Here is a break down of complete mods my car has, and a few more pics...

Bottom End
010 GM 4 Bolt Main Block
Stock Uncut Crank
Scat Forged I-Beam Rods
TRW Forged Flat Top Pistons, Molly Rings
Stock Style Pan, High Volume pump Pick-up
ARP Head Studs



Top End
GM Fuellie Double Hump Heads
Stainless 2.02/ 1.60 Valves
Double Beehive Springs
ARP Rocker Studs
SpeedPro 1.6 Aluminum Roller Rockers
7/16 Stud Girdles
Comp Custom Grind Nitrous Cam flat tappet Smile
Noisy Gear Drive


(disregard that junky oil pan....long gone lol)

Induction & Spark
Old Skool Edelbrock Single Plane Scorpion Intake
Proform 600 Double Pumper
Low Key Auto Braided Stainless Lines
Aeromotive A1000 Bypass Regulator
Walbro 255lph Inline
Modified Stock Tank
MSD Pro Billet HEI (locked out & module removed)
Mallory Digital Hyfire w/ 2-step
Autolite AR133's @ .032



Nitrous

Low Key Auto Street Valves
Custom Aluminum Fuel Cell (for C16 Enrichment)
Summit Racing 95gph Electric Pump
Aeromotive Bypass Regulator



Transmission & Rear
TH350 Built

B&M Pro Ratchet
9C1 8.5" 10 Bolt from 84 Impala
3.73 Richmond gears, locked carrier
Stock Axles & c-clips Shocked
M&H Racemasters 8.5" Wide




...hope you guys like it Smile
Aside from the exhaust and gear drive, nobody ever expects this thing to run like it does.

Haha cool. I have a buddy that works at the one on Front st. And actually, I'm considering an LT1 swap. We have a hearse at work that may be getting replaced soon and it has a 53k mile LT1 with my name on it. But my parents would kill me with the wagon, my VW and a hearse in the driveway, no freakin room here Laughing

I don't know that I'm the fastest, but I'm mid 13's at 105ish with no traction and terrible 60 foots. Probably has high 12's in her if I'd grow a set and put the drag radials on her. Wink

Maybe you can convince Nab to run full out this year. I'd love to see his car on a full shot before he sells it. Last year he ran all motor which made his death trap only marginally fast.

As for the locals Crovo is only fast when there's a cop involved. Rich may be fast this year, assuming he remember to wear pants. And them Maine guys are very fast with their arms out the window drinking coffee as they go down the track.

lol!

Few more pictures I took...



...Up close of the new Proform 600 Double pumper. In the picture, you can see the modified dominator return spring setup Smile
You will also notice the Low Key Auto street series valves attached to the Full Race Plate.




Aeromotive bypass regulator and shot of the custom fuel cell. The cell is used with c16 for enrichment fuel while on nitrous so I dont have to retard very much timing while on spray.



Serpentine setup from a 1990 Astro Van with the AC delete pulley. The setup came off a 4.3 v6 and bolted on almost flawlessly. I took the time to sandblast the brackets and have them powdercoated silver.

I've gone for a ride in his car all motor around Gateway International Raceway in St. Louis. Trust me it's more than marginally fast. It's sickening fast.

That's a nice looking motor. Smile

And Nab should be there, as the ECIRS is coming up. He usually trailers. He'll probably spray something until it pops. Wink Should be a few other quick cars there too. Many MUCH faster than me.
