I still run the occasional HPDE and being here in the desert S.W. where summer temps can exceed 115+ I don't want the extra weight or complexity that goes with many f/i setups.

Cooling.........

I have upgraded the radiator to a new DeWitts Z06 unit, which means TOC but no EOC. I'll be installing a new EOC, and if/when necessary, I can put a partial cover on it to restrict some of it's airflow.
I don't want to be facing any oil temp issues when running any HPDE's here in Arizona.
I also purchased the ProSpeed dual Spal fan and custom shroud setup, which should help address any cooling issues while sitting in traffic.
The Meziere electric water pump should help that issue as well, while freeing up a few ponies in the process

I also liked Josh's idea of putting on an oil heater blanket around the dry sump tank to preheat the oil before leaving the garage in the morning. Putting it on a garden timer which I can program for the days of the week I'd like to drive the car is brilliant....thanks Josh !!!!

FYI - MH3 spec transmission, 3.90 rear gear, and 7300 RPM ....... MPH by gear.
I won't have the power (or the *****) to reach 221, but I think it could comfortably reach the lower 2-teens, if there was a place to stretch it's legs.
I'm hoping I can eke enough out of here, with my aero tricks, to tickle 200 MPH in a standing 1 mile event.
We shall see.........

Very well put together. Looking forward to the end results. I may be starting a new build thread in the next few days. Waiting on some things to fall in place. 2019 is coming in hot!

Exhaust system.........

I was originally running the Billy Boat stainless 1 7/8th longtubes, which I had ceramic coated, back thru an Akrapovic EVO titanium exhaust.
I've now upgraded to a new set of ARH 2" with a catless x-pipe, which then feeds the axle back portion of my Akrapovics.
For racing events, I think I'll have a pair of turn downs built which I'll attach to my titanium mid-pipe, and I'll pull the axle back for the weight savings.

Oh, and for cosmetic purposes, I upgraded my carbon fiber tips to the full 5" units

You on the dyno early next week ?

It was ironic when you started your build thread that my setup looks very similar to yours !!!!
WE might be running a slightly bigger cam than yours, but we are waiting on my flow benchmarks and securing the intake before making the cam selection.
I also have the 3.90 rear gear and some minor weight reduction.....2960 lbs was my last weigh in , in race trim. Hoping to get to 2900 flat, or below, when I'm finished

Those first pics didn't look that bad. I'm sure you could have gotten another 20K miles out of that engine. It doesn't count as blown unless you can pour valves and rings out of the intake manifold.
I may have to bail on the Irwindale trip in the Spring, unless it takes you another 10-12 weeks to finish and sort out details, but I'd still like to see you at WHP. GL on the build. It looks good,

While the final details have yet to be ironed out, I had asked Anthony if he could reach out to Billy Godbold over at Comp Cams while he was at PRI last week and strong arm him into letting us try the new FAST intake that is making it's debut sometime early next year.
It looks like Anthony may have been able to strike a deal, so with any luck, we will see what the new FAST LSX HR 103 does on a big inch LS motor !!!!!

Anthony spent some time taking some pics of the intake when he got the opportunity out of his busy schedule........looks very promising

I had also reached out to Joe and Kaleb over at Performance Design, about getting one of their new carbon fiber lids with the billet aluminum throttle body interface........one that could accept a bolt pattern for something a wee bit bigger than the NW 102 TB. We shall see if that bears any fruit next week as well









The PD manifold lid......

Holy crap the CF looks amazing!!! I take it that the hood still needs to be cut for this?

Hood and also looks like the cowl would also need to be cut. Looks interesting.

The cowl for sure..... with OEM motor mounts, I may still need to cut my hood to clear, but I run an aftermarket cf cowl hood to begin with
