Have been reading with interest for a while and this is my first post.
I am currently building a "steetable" Single cab that I plan to drag race.
Grover is a 1954 Barndoor single cab that I have had for a while now and like all things is getting out of hand :happy:
The engine is an Autocraft 101.6 x 88. It runs a moldex crank, Pauter rods, CP pistons, 910 heads with Titanium and Incanel valves etc. The trans is a bus box build by Dave Butler (Dangerous Dave) to be as strong as it can and will run A RLR rev 6 clutch.
It will be super charged with a 2300 Harrop charger, with a water to air inter cooler. A Haltec ecu will control the fuel and ignition and full data acquisition.
The SC will be full bodied and has an ANDRA approved roll cage.
I am not sure how all this will work so I am hoping my questions can be answered here.
i have loved this build from the start no one usually does a race bus this nice.
Cant wait to see what it actually runs down the track,heck even if its slower then expected its still a great start to a show bus and weekend drag bus
Grover is almost done.
We have run the engine and have driven up and down the driveway. Have a few issues to sort but after a few commitments will start tuning for power and get it down the strip.
In full streetable trim it weighed 1160KGs 2557pounds. Pretty happy with that as a stock bus comes in at 998kgs 2200pounds empty. I would say race weight when unnessary items removed will be about the 2500pounds with me in it.
Some final pics of engine before it went back in last night.
