OK ok, back on topic.
So the new upper control arms showed up for the Trans Am the other day for its front suspension upgrade. It goes under the wrench on Nov.30.
Still waiting for the Intense packages to show. +25 hp
And the DHP Powertuner is in the mail. +25 hp
I have a definite plan and will be running next year with the 2.9" pulley on the Gen5 with no other power adders besides the water injection system.
Hopefully the new belt tensioner from Hans is in the mail.
Goal 12.9 sec at 106 mph and a 1.8 60'
Over the Christmas holidays I will probably pull the engine on the Formula for a new cam and top end Spring freshening. Will decide then if I will bless it with the ported aluminum Edelbrock heads and high stall torque converter, but a good possibility. +60 hp
The cam I have in it now was matched to the original gearing that was upgraded years ago and dies above 5000 rpm. It will be pushed up to 5800 rpm.
Goal 12.5 sec at 110 mph and a 1.7 60'
My true goal next year is not to have the biggest baddest Bonne but to build my Formula where it will be quicker than the Bonne. That'* really the way it should be.........RWD > FWD.
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
