That looks like the Cox Bros 66 Dart. NO blower, but injected, alcohol, and nitrous. Tube chassis car has gone 9.97 in the 1/4 mile. More pics here. Red 66 Dart. Click on pics for full size.

All the cars in those galleries are slant powered.


Unfortunately the Cox car was destroyed in an on-track incident at the Nats a few years ago. It was a real shame. The boys are sheet metal workers and the car truly was a piece of artwork.

!!!!! I never heard about that. The Cox Bros car and Wilford Day are what got me into slant sixes. I learned about Wilford Day when I was searching for one of these...

...Im still looking for one or acually a certain one that was on a motor that my dad and some buddies raced.

No turbo or charged but here are some of my slant pics.

My first stab at a turbo 225 - a Mitsubishi TE04H off a K-car and blow through carb. It did start and run, and I did take it to a few cruise ins, but it had some pretty serious drivability issues. So I decided to chuck the carb, tiny turbo, and the rest of the setup, and I'm now working on building an injected motor with a Garrett GT4082.

Does it give you much trouble on cold starts?

I heard they don't like it much.

ok trying to bring this back to life does anyone know of any engine builds that are bullet proof for these motors ? any good place to shop for parts ? pistons, rods, crank options and more importantly cylinder head components ? let me know thinking bout a turbo set up for my duster

I would go with the k1 rods. The best rod you can buy for the money right now for the six. The crank I would use one of the forged units that came on the mid 70s slant? I could be wrong and pistons the wiseco company makes a forged set and you could have them sent off to a coatings place as well. Other then that ive seen some guys run stock stuff with high boost on their sixes.

The K1 rods look to be the best set, just keep in mind they are 198 length rods, which will raise your compression to just over 10 to 1 and will be a little much for a turbo application. Marshall at Campbell enterprises said getting custom pistons to lower the compression for a turbo application would not be a problem, but it will put you up to about $718.00 for the set. In considering a turbo app he also suggested upgrading to a stronger pin as well. This for me is fine, though it will take a while to put $$$ aside because I'd like a strong rotating assembly to handle the pressure.

The Cox Bros. used to have a roller tip rocker assembly available from what I understand(I'd like to know more about that myself) and SI Valves has a larger valve for the slant. The important part to me is finding a machinist to open up the breathing capabilities of the slant 6 head.
And if you find anyone who has or can fab up a decent turbo header I wouldn't mind knowing about that

I was gonna start fabricating a turbo manifold flanged for a Holset HX 40 turbo and aluminum intake manifold, I am planning on fuel injecting my set up and most likely probably run an aem ems system. myself but was trying to get more info on builds that got people into the tens, i have a 70 slant six 225 in my duster and thats were it will be going into till i build a v8 turbo set up and do something cool with the 225, trying to find the parts right now though to start the build. anyone have any links to any information on other builds that are holding up well to get ideas on whats working on these motors ?
