So far so good, have a few hundred miles on the new pushrods and hasn't missed a beat. Also went to the track this last weekend........... ran a better time then before so all is well :-) Went an 11.02@120.

We will keep plugging away at her this season and hopefully get it going faster and faster. Taking a trip down to Pomona this Friday, in her, to the NHRA opening event. Planning on heading down early morning, cruising by SoCal then hitting the track by mid day. This will be a pretty long trip, specially since its all in the same day.

SoCal trip went well. Got to hang out a bit with Guy, Lorenzo and Gabe. As always, great people to be around. Also made it to the Pomona Auto Club Raceway to watch some fuel cars and the car never missed a beat. Over 800 miles round trip all in the same day.





Some pics from SoCal Diesel.

I am doing a build with a dmax and am looking for a rad and cooler if you could mention size and where you got them that would be great.

The radiator is a Summit generic universal type. This is the second one in the car, first one went out 1-2 yrs ago, lasted about 50k then it started leaking. Was cheaper to replace it then fix it, these go for less then 200$ from summit. I'm getting ready to order a different style radiator that fits the car better, it will be a little lower in the core support so the factory upper mount will bolt on again and will have trans cooler provisions and a heater core return fitting as well. Hopefully next month I'll make the change to the new radiator, depending on the brand they vary from 150-300 dollars.

The IC is a godspeed, have had it since day one, over 60k miles on it and seems to work good. Currently run 55psi of boost thru it and have had it as high as 90psi with the triples. Found it on ebay over 10 years ago for 150$, not sure what they run today but prob about the same. Its for a Grand National v6 turbo car.
