393C Dragster update

Extractors are now welded up and the shifter is mounted.









I am still waiting for my O2 sensor weld-on bungs and EGT probe weld-on bungs to arrive in order to weld them and send the whole works out for Jet Hot coating.

I have a set of 4" turn out that have diffusers in them, which will meet NHRA noise requirements for tracks with noise rules.

I still have a lot more work to do on the car before it is ready to run. It is too hot to spend too much time each day working on it. In the early mornings it is over 29*C and by lunchtime it has been up to about 40*C (in my garage!) every day. We had a couple of "cool" days where it didn't go much above 36*C due to some overcast weather.

The only thing that I can do is work on it for a couple of hours in the early mornings on weekends. I hope to have it running by late September to early October when the nights start to cool down enough to put a fire suit on and wait in the staging lanes.

Re: 393C Dragster update

Wow excellent dragster you got there davis(lucky bastard). I hear ya about them hot days, here in South Australia we get temps like those. Sometimes it gets over 40*c for a couple of weeks in a row, it's good for the beach and drinking beer but not so good for working on cars. Damn i wish it was summer here, ours dosen't start till about november. What times do you think the dragster is going to be putting down?

We basically have three to four months of summer where it doesn't usually get too much below about 32*C at night and can easily get over 47*C during the day. However, this month has been somewhat more mild and included a few overcast days where it didn't even get over 39*C.

The dragster should run a low 8, maybe a high 7.

Re: 393C Dragster update

You know, I was just starting to wonder what sort of car a "608 FWHP 510 FWTQ 393C" would fit nicely into... now I know. Bloody hell.

Nice work!

My weight estimates put the entire package somewhere between 1450-1580# with me in it. Dyno tests are as XDman notes, 608 HP. I believe that there is about another 30 HP in it that were not "tuned out of it" as a result of a relatively brief tuning session...only made 6 pulls.

Another couple of months of tinkering with it and a few more large dollar item purchases and I should have it fairly close to being ready to make some initial test passes.

Neeek, I'd like to see an engine similar to this in a '67 Cougar with a full hand-hammered aluminum body, 5-speed G-Force clutchless, Mark Williams magnesium rear end with 4.30:1 gears, MT ET Drag 10.5W tires, chome moly Eliminator II chassis with Strange aluminum strut front end and lightest weight materials used throughout. Including a Fontana alloy block with a large over bore and short stroke running injected alcohol and topped with a set of the 4-valves per cylinder Arao heads.






...don't wake me up from the dream!

The only problem with it (other than financial) is that PSCA won't allow a 4-valve head into their Outlaw Street (10.5W tire) class.
