EFI now installed!  
It's been a long while between posts!

We've added Fuel Injection to the Falcon. Still working on a "race" tune up, but right now it has a fairly safe air/fuel ratio with a bit of retarded timing. So it should buy us some time to sneak up on the tune up.
That's about it for now.

OK, we rebuilt, ran 15 passes and grenaded again at the Nostalgia races at Speedworld. Good news is we did a new best ET of 10.89 at 122mph at 15 lbs of boost. The timing chain let loose on the last past. Going an 11.27 (breaking at the 1000ft)against a big block Hemi!!! So, with Manley Rods, Classic Inlines Head (now fully ported), HardBloc, custom Will-designed cam by Clay Smith we were able to get the best ETs, lower boost and best 60ft (1.52 sec). We are now re-engineering the cam/crank sprocket/timing chain combo to accept a 302 based set-up. We'll keep you posted. We plan to try again at the Standard 1320 event on Labor Day at Speedworld.

Now it's time for a new motor! 
Well we grenaded Kelly's motor last Oct. while warming up the engine to make a pass for the SpeedChannel show "PassTime".
So another block and crank is at Machine Works being readied for us to assemble. This time we're trying some new stuff to make the cyl. walls a bit more robust!
Our next race is up at Firebird for the PSCA season opener on Feb. 6-8.

New front suspension! 
Well we did a little work on the front end.
Added a Total Control Rack & Pinion and a Ron Morris coil over setup.
This will enable us to lower the car a little more and have much better steering geometry when the front suspension is extended.

Getting ready for the Standard1320 Reunion Race on April 12th!

Pinks All Out Prep 
Ok, now we're getting ready for Pinks All Out in Tucson on November 17th. Wiring seems to be working fine. Now we're upgrading the alternator, tuning the carb, hooking up the tailights, adjusting the fuel pick up tube. We're hoping for mid10s but will be happy with low 11s and keeping everything in one piece. Hopefully we'll at least get an interview so we can promote the cause and bring more attention to the I6s.
Here's to keeping safe and running fast.
