    Default right direction???

    I have a tx20 warhawk and a dominator pump, my motor is a 565 bbc 10.5-1 comp. afr 335 heads, cam is 274-278 dur. @50 and 750 lift. I turn a A hi-helix 5500 rpm with a single 1050. my last weekend out with no mufflers and back seat out I ran 98 mph on gps so what started out to do a tunnel ram and dual 4150,s has turned into an addiction!!!!. I went with a profiler sniper tunnel ram and after talking with gary Williams I am going with his dual 1120 dominators and either go with a B or get my impeller cut to get my rpm to 6500. I am also going to change my fuel system to a bypass system. I have also speedcoated the middle tunnel and pump intake and adding a vacuum pump to the motor. so let me have it! am I going the right direction for better performance?

    did you end up buying that Hondo you was looking at and if so how you coming with it?, I would not have my setup if that NHRA track would of opened up in new Florence, I live just off 19, so that would have been close, but I will tell you after building a jet boat it is a lot more addictive than a drag car and cheaper. I am HOOKED. by the way that LS is a great motor for a jet boat, there I no end to them!

    I keep telling horsepower junkie friends they need to get into boats for the cost factor alone.ive ran a modified in dirt track, done the asphalt dragracing, and boats are wayyyy more fun and so much cheaper.. throw in a cheap ls motor and its even more fun!

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Exactly!!! Ive gta good friend about to stuff a 750hp screw blown ford mod motor into his 08 mustang and he doesnt go to tracks or race at all.i asked when and where would he need that much for street driving and he had no answer.the guy is as straight laced as it comes ,never gets tickets etc, so to me its just to brag i guess.trying to talk him nto stickn it in a lite tunnel lol at least he cld use the hp then.yeah im sure 0-70mph feels awesome in his stang but 0-100 in a tunnel wld feel sooo much nicer and no tickets

    Yep I ended up dragging it home. Stripping all the paint off of it now. Same here I would still be into cars if they would of built that track... but you know how it goes a couple cry babies can ruin EVERYTHING. It would of been 10 minutes up the road from me and help bring some business into the area. Im hooked too. No turning back now.

    TNyoungblood has a 10 to 1 540 with 750's x 2. I know it will run 100 in 100 degree heat. Seems like a lot of cam and a lot of carb for the peak rpm.

    That is a lot of carb and cam for the rpm. Bigger is NOT better in this case. The intake runners are quite big on that manifold and you're going to need less duration to help with some port velocity. You might get a recommendation from CStraub on the cam. I wouldn't have any more than a pair of 1050's.

    STEELCOMP & CSTRAUB, you guys build some great stuff, I am holding off on fogger till next fall when I freshen it and I plan on getting CSTRAUB to do a cam. when I started this project I was doing a 496, I got the 335 heads new, took the short block to machine shop and long story short got back junk. after lots of research I decided on a 565 reher morrisn shortblock and their cam, I have had people tell me it is to big so when we dynoed it the dyno operator could not believe on chp fuel it made over 700 tq from 4500 to 5600 maxing at 720 at 5500 and 800 hp at 6500. it was 90 degree and humid when dynoed and it did not correct for friction & inertia. in the heat I turn 5400 and 5500 on a nice day with pump gas in which the impeiiar chart says 755 hp and 721 tq and all at 30 degrees timing in which you all done help me with in past post. what more could I expect with a cam change and would it be worth looking in to?

    street racing was big around here sense the closet track is over 2 hours away but the law has brought it to a end, across the river in ILL. they have a law up to vote if convicted you have to watch your car being crushed plus i make my living in a service truck. tell your friend that I have had more BIKINS ride in one summer than 10 years of hotrods

    IMO with a TR and two carbs, solid roller, you should be well into the 900 hp range and all over 800lbs ft. Like Chris said, a couple years ago we did the top end for a 10.7:1 540 with a tr and a pair of 750's that made 909.1hp @ 6200, 823 lbs/ft @ 5200.
