      Well not much more time working and looking to retire. Hoping to see you all at some events.
      I’m in process of rebuilding the motor, going to upgrade some parts in the motor and looks like i I’ll b adding a cage that will cert to 8.50 in the 1/4 mile and I’m looking to get the old girl to run 8:90’s.

      ** Hope you can make that work out well!

      ** That would be great, I’ll look forward to seeing you and hearing some good stories.

      ** Good luck with all of that. When you get to that (8.90s), you can be extra sure that "no-one will want to race the old man in the Tiger" (pretty sure those were your words :mrgreen: )

      Good to hear the news Jerry! Retirement is great-I highly recommend it. Best thing that has happened to me. Will you be staying out West? Hope you can make it to the United in Ohio this Summer. Eric

      I don’t think that I’ve ever seen all of the "specifics" on your build.
      … wondering – are you running any kinda "cooling spray" after the turbos? Many of my turbo-Buick buddies swear by the methanol injection… on the GNs (and related cars) the nozzle(s) goes after [downstream of] the intercooler and allows for some serious extra power.

      Mark 1A I have a air to water innercooler in the trunk that I run ice in when racing. I have the tank and pump mounted for Meth injection but haven’t hook it up yet, I will really be looking into hooking it up when i get my new motor back in and I will post up some results when I get on the Dyno.

      Sounds like you have all kinds of tricks up your sleeve (or stashed in the trunk :mrgreen: ). The plumbing for your set-up must require quite an extensive schematic 😯
      I thought that I’d heard somewhere along the line that meth injection was "the cheapest 100 hp you can get" [for a Buick anyway]. Of course the ice water set-up is probably "pretty cool", too 🙄
      Good luck with everything, and we’ll look forward to hearing/seeing more as you progress.

      Thanks, but I think that i still need a schematic to identify the "gozintas" and the "gozoutas" there in the photo 😕
      Deinitely a work of art there.
      The 2 turbos are under the hood?

    • #65997

      No turbos are mounted in the rear just in front of the rear end housing 😀
