Lol what's wrong with doing the swap in a 71?

Nothing happened, was a perfect pass.

I know what you mean. I wouldn’t have done a 71, I like them but the 70 is the way to go!!

Default Chevelle upgrades.

Not that many changes this month. Added in a Billet wheel to the atmo turbo, no change. Think it sounds different when spooling and when I chop the throttle. But over performance is the same.

Ran it last weekend with NHRDA here locally and ran a 10.91 in the 10.90 index. Same as last month here in Sacramento. This track just can’t hold enough traction to go faster then that. Ended up losing in the final round do to a messed up boost tube.

My daughter ran the tow rig and the Trans is just tired. It did run a 15.0@94, which is surprising considering this is an extremely mellow tune and the stock trans has 308k miles on it. It’s showing its age and limped 2 out of 4 passes. Time to build it!!

We’re driving it the Chevelle to Redding this coming week for a car show and drag race, Kool April Nights, not sure if anyone is from the area but if you are we’ll be running the car Friday night.
