the cliffs notes here is basically a guy got fed up hurting built motors in his tuned port third gen trans am and decided he was gonna boost the piss out of a junk motor and if it breaks it wont hurt his pocket.... apparently all the stars aligned because the car clipped off a 9.37@150 and the motor is still going strong! sadly his th400 took a crap on him. many build details and good pics in that thread i thought you guys would be interested to see.

that thread is a 172 pages of filler but theres just a great hero story in all of it.

There's never enough money to build it right, but there's always enough to build it twice!
