      Imagine that. :)

      We tossed them on right out of the box along with the Speedmaster rocket arm set. We did move the shims on the shaft around a bit for better alignment. I hope to get the motor back in the car in the next few weeks. April 11 will indeed be interesting...

        I imagine in a few months we'll start to get results of "how much peoples cars dropped in ET" by bolting on these heads. Should be interesting.

                Ya, I've run there in the past on T&T days/nights, but not with the Duster yet. Gotta do a bit more work to pass tech and get a new CRT 727 in this spring. Plan is to run down there this summer. Been chomping at the bit to see what she'll do.

                  I would not be surprised. The Dart was a 14.60s (13.40s for you flatlanders) car last year. We will know in April...

                    Just a 340, nothing fancy. Cam, (unknown grind), 650 Eddy, old Hooker comps, 6AL, 3500 Hughes convert, rmvb, 3.23s. Subframe connectors. Was running pretty good until the 727 started eating itself. Never base lined it, but would be real happy with mid'ish 13s in the current configuration. We'll see.... Future plans are, CRT 727 trans, aluminum heads (Eddys or Trickflow), 750 cfm Eddy and 3.90- 4.10's

                    Unfortunately it's been a on again, off again project, but it's coming along.

                      This is bench-marked for me as one of my highlight runs early in the year. This kind of stuff catches my interest :)
