Mancini Racing 9 position timing set
Edelbrock Victor Jr with dominator adaptor. Modified by tig welding an aluminum plate to intake instead of using valley pan tin. The picture on the left shows the 383 on the stand. Look at the orange pan under the intake. That pan is the area I covered by having the aluminum plate tig welded to the intake.
Holley 1050 Dominator
Oil Pan and Oiling system
Charlie's A-body oil pan
Milodon external oil line high volume pump with swinging pick-up (oil pick-up rotate front to rear under acceleration)
Once again I had to fabricate a new throttle bracket
I made this gauge and switch panel. I got a local trophy shop to make siwtch identifications.
I formed a piece of aluminum sheet to cover the top of the radiator to achieve a more finished look.(Picture left before and right after)
I removed all the manual window regulator used the old super stock strap to raise and lower the side windows.
WOO HOO! The $75.00 sticker. NHRA chassis certification to 8.50 ET
The new master cylinder and Hurst line lock
Wheel-e-bars added Show Less
Some other Improvements:
I replaced the seats and seat covers. I also ditched the Hurst 1/4 stick and replaced with a Cheetah shifter. Note: Picture on th... Show moree right, a red button on the steering wheel. That is the trans brake button.
This is a bracket race car. The goal in bracket racing is consistency. I installed this Biondo Racing CO2 air shifter. The left picture is showing the electronic controller. This wired into the MSD box and activates when the engine reaches the disired predetermined shift RPM. Right is the CO2 bottle. In the picture in the left you can see the red button on the steering wheel that is the trans brake button.
Installed an electric fan and Coan Engineering trans cooler with -4AN braided stainless steel lines.
Becuase the car would dance side to side on the big end I replaced the old worn out coil overs with new ones from QA1.
383 cubic inch low deck big block 30 over.
Eldebrock Torker intake with mild porting.
2-1/4" spacer and Holley 750 Dominator.

Compression ratio 11.17 to 1
Crane Cam 1.6 roller rockers.
Bolt in sprag
727 with Griner no-Low band apply brake.
8" 5000 stall torque converter from Coan.
8-3/4 narrowed and braced with Moser engineering 35 spline axles and spool. Richmond 4.56 gears with 29 spline pinion and Moser Engineering forged billet 29 spline pinion yoke.
In March of 2006. I started the major rebuild of the car. I started with pulling out the 383. Then I started reading welding books and taught myself how to weld.
After a lot of practice I started welding in the full cage. I installed top hoop and A-pillar bars, and forward bars that extend through the firewall to the front of the frame rail and are welded both to the firewall and the A-pillar bars. Not shown is the Window net.
The forward bars sometimes referred to as front kickers. The second bar attaching to the frame rail is to support the motor plate brackets. I also boxed the shock mounts to these forward bars for more stiffness.
Forward bar boxed and welded to shock mount.
Trick tubular A-arms and QA1 9 position adjustable shocks added with braided stainless steel brake lines.
Aerospace front disc brakes added.
