That is one beautiful cat. Here's hoping it pulls as well as it looks. Kudos.

Mine is a 351C-4V car (originally) but for a few more weeks has a 418W sitting under the hood.

Yours is drop-dead gorgeous!

You might have seen mine on the 2005 AutoKrafters catalog front page?

I will be running iron heads and a torker but will probably upgrade to the funnelweb after seeing yours.

Let us know what it dynos at.

Do you plan to drag race it? Please say yes.

I am very pleased with my results so far. The car made 381 rwhp and 372 ft/lbs tq at 5000 rpm. Although there was no A/F sensor, the dyno operator said that I was running real fat by the smell. It cost $50.00 per 3 passes with no tuning, so I only had him run it to 5500. the cam is supposed to be good to around 6300 rpm. The dyno operator said the motor was still pulling and with some tuning I should get to 400 rwhp. the motor is still very fresh. I believe it to be a very mild build, with only 10.5:1 cr and a cam with just under 600 lift, hydraulic FT. Great street manners, with no cooling problems all summer using an inexpensive electric fan and a 3 core brass radiator. Many thanks to Scotty J., CHI John, and Brian from A & D.

Allenman, is your car gold? I have the 06' AK catalog and cant find my older issues. That catalog is one of my best friends!!

Next year I hope to do a little drag racing. My dad and his friends built a nice 39 Austin (chevy powered Uggghhh!!) drag car that goes 9.80 at 133 mph, so I have some help here.

Sadly the season here in western NY is over. cant wait till spring!!!

Mine is on the 2005 AK Catalog. It's red with white Elim stripes (painted) and some custom paint touches but the rest stock.

Send me your email and I can shoot you some photos of the beast.

I seem to remember a red cougar w/white eliminator stripes painted on in a Ford or Mustang some years ago. Was That yours? Anyway, shoot me some pics to chevykiller70@msn.com. Also, what is your combo and do you drag race it?

Joel, nice looking ride and nice numbers. I'm sure by now you've already tore back into her for some more HP. What cam are you running? What headers are you using?

Thanks.
