    Anyways I'm looking forward to seeing how this intake works on my new truck build. Again I'm just hoping it seals well and delivers air and fuel to the heads LOL..

    i agree. Its one of the blueprint engines strokers. Should run way better.
    My old stock stroke 360 ran 11.20’s at almost 119. 3320 pounds. 10 to 1, just cleaned up eddies and airgap

      If the bombcycle, with the SM intake, was in a duster with DT's drive train... that 200k 5.9 would be well in the mid 12's, maybe low 12's.... so the intake must be work'n some. That is probably one of the biggest dirt road engines on this site.

        I have no doubt the intake can make power.

        what thousands would you have to spend on suspension?
        I went 9’s on CE 3 ways on all 4 corners and super stock springs.
        119 is very borderline 10’s. I went right at 119 with my 360, best was 11.20’s and it worked good. 120 is typically 11.0’s or teens.

        Maybe next spring we'll see if the Eddy RPM offers something on a mild build like bombcycle. Might help somebody make a decision if it's worth the extra $$. Nice to know, and we all like options

            I'd politely suggest your buddy contact us for some tuning and component suggestions/advice. In my opinion it's really hard to suggest "an engine should run better" when there are hundreds of factors that result in quarter mile times. "setup to race pretty well" doesn't mean it has the right converter, or the best gears for his setup, etc, etc, etc,. There are 600 HP cars out there with bad converter/gear matches that couldn't spin the tires in the rain.

              110 Mph sounds like the throttle isn’t opening all the way. That’s an easy guess among all the other guesses people could make as to why it’s struggling.

                i went 1.34 on that stuff. Its not hard to get a car to 60 foot respectably without much money. Especally A body Mopars with good rear overhang.
                Heck my old Duster with that 318 enginemasters mill ran high 1.50’s on stock leafs and New Yorker shocks.

                  i agree about 1/4 times. But it doesnt make any MPH either. Its a pooch.
                  He and several guys at the track have fooled with it couple seasons now. There is nothing he has going on that jumps out as to why it only runs 110 after numerous outings, other than the motor doesnt make a lot of power

                  Agree to disagree. nowhere near enough data points to just say, "the engine is a pooch". And I again invite that gentlemen to call us, and talk setups anytime he chooses. Is he on the forum? I'd be happy to talk with him. I bracket race all summer long in a 408 dart running 10.20's. I may have a tip or two up my sleeve.

                      Both my '76 Duster and '80 D150 cut 1.8's consistently. Both will get quicker but with stock suspension and in street form (especially the truck), it gets a little more tough. Sometimes, because of circumstances, you gotta get the ET in the rest of the 1260 ft.

                          this is on CE 3 ways and 002/003 leafs… not 1.34 on this pass, more like 1.44 with the rear tires..lol
