Much to my wife's dismay we brought this home yesterday. This car been around for a long time. Old timers will remember it as Travis Beckendorffs first race car. Went mid 9s way back in the day. Yes that is a real GNX dash. Had a twin turbo motor last. I have a 109 stroker under contruction so the question is should I slap some stage 2 heads on it bolt up the twins and see how much a 109 will really take or maybe just some good heads and a 70GTQ and see where that takes us. We will see what happens either way it is good to have a race car again

if it was me...build something that your market would be interested in...almost like this is what you can do with x x x parts and good tune and fuel. or do it in a series 12.5 sec car then a 12.0 car then a 11.5 etc showing changes etc that have been done...just my opinion you would have a great base car to "test" things such as turbos IC INJ etc

Mike,

That looks like a nice TSM car to me!!! Build that Stroker 109 and go TSM hunting. Good luck with what ever you do with it. :headbang:

That car is built for running. No use in going back to a 12 second car and doing progressions as that has been done over and over for years (visit GNTTYPE.ORG). Stroker 109 with Stage heads and a nice matching turbo. Let's see what it will take.... that hasn't been done!

Mike, I'm wondering; of course if you go to SII heads, that means a SII cam. Now, the SII cams I've seen have very wide (thick front to back) cam journals, will they even fit the narrow journals of the stock block?????
