Tell me about this car. What was done to it, engine/transmission wise?

In terms of today'* common stuff, not much.

But back then, it was one of our quicker cars of the type. After it'* destruction, the Zilla (greenzilla) adopted part of the name out of respect. All with the owner'* consent and complete agreement.

IIRC, it was squashed between two semi'*, and also had the proud distinction of winning a race at the dragstrip against the owner'* female boss and winning her underwear. It was a Mercedez Kompressor as I remember.

This is all from memory, but I believe it had either a cam or rockers, intake, and some exhaust work. Complinitor was the owner, the car was totalled. Some of the mods went over to his Monte, the replacement vehicle.

(again, all from memory, so some errors are possible)

Well I did search, but what I came up with was he had exhaust and was running a split rocker ratio. I also read where he posted running between 14.0 and 14.5 with 231 whp???? I'll have to look up the intake.... Did read about the semis squishing the car though. That sucks :(

That seems like a very quick time for 231whp. No tranny mods, that you can recall or the sort?

No trans work that I recall.

I may be able to rope him in for an update if you don't find what you want.

I don't want to know how you'll do that.

But I certainly wouldn't mind seeing some pictures of his old Bonne

I guess I'm so new to this forum that I haven't heard of Badzilla. It may be that I read about it here and there, and then I just associated it with Zilla and moved on. With this, I have subscribed to the thread to see pictures.

Made it through maybe 200 of the 500 posts. So far, I've gathered ported heads(I believe by himself, or someone he knows well), cam(unkown grind currently), rockers.

Intake has been learned of in this thread as well as exhaust. Wonder what sorta exhaust....
