welcome to the club!will you be adding a bypass to the rear? we build a 2110cc low comp engine early this year and we love it, runs xlnt and 91 pump gas is getting cheaper which makes it really nice.
My goal right now is NORRA. Trying to tear this car apart and getting it back together in time. Like you, It's all on my dime. I bought the car last month at a good deal. A little late for NORRA, But i could'nt pass it up. I just did'nt realize how much parts cost. My brain was thinking Dirtbike parts not race car parts. lol But I have to say Mckenzies has been good to me. Once i get the Mex 1000 out of the way. I'll set my sites on local races.
I have a full race plenum $1,776 built by Chris Tool. Its a top shelf engine and has only 60 race miles before I DNF'd. It blows the doors off any pump gas engine there is. Turn key and ready to rock. My 12 car is gone so I don't need it.
Oh boy! sounds like we are going to have an internal battle for high vs low compression.......
All in good spirit I say....
Wait for the low compression magic to show up..... and compare gas reciepts!! LOL
There's no comparison. Pump gas guys only hope is if guys like Rick Poole/mike Malloy, Daniel folts, bruckmann etc break. Only guy I know of running a 6 speed is folts. The Mende 5 speed is what Poole/Malloy and bruckmann run and I'd pick bruckmann and Malloy even with the 5 speeds mendeolas. That's the lightest and most proven transmission for a 12 car. Many of the 10 guys have gone away from the Mende 6 speed I favor of the fortins. I watched Malloy in Rick pooles single set 12 smoke 10s at ratr. A 5 speed mendeola and a ss plenum car will easily outrun any other combo.
