I understand, I don't know you at all so I was defending myself. I see this car doing MANY things in the future, she hasn't given up on life.. just needs a new heart

I really hate that I blew an axle at IDD and it didn't have a shot to pick up on the race fuel at the back of the track. I only gained 19mph in the back when I would normally do 22-23. The track was hot and it didn't have enough race fuel. I ran 13.436 in it without the heads and did it on a 3.25 pulley at 102.9mph. I feel confident it had the power *if I had the will to go back* to pull a 13.0-12.9 with the heads, it just didn't come together that day for me.

At any rate, yeah, the two bests are 13.436 on a 3.25/stock heads and 13.42 with the heads and a 2.8 without enough race gas at a hot track. That motor was a freak on a 3.25, and the 3.1 w/heads.

Anyway, time to go!

Well the body is still nice. Everything else can be fixed.

You all know me...I'm not good with this kinda stuff...BUT...

Wouldn't it be far cheaper to rebuild with the few parts that you need instead of dropping a new engine in...even if you did get one from the junker? Aren't pistons like $30-50, connecting rods <$75? Valves can't be that expensive in the scope of things?

NVM, I must be missing something

Best of luck to you.

Some of the parts (aka heads) got ruined. Therefore new (big and major) parts are needed)
