Been working on this thing and it started leaking water again from the small head bolts . I pulled both headers and valve covers to do a retorque on the heads . All the bolts were tight at 70#s except the lower small bolts and every one of them to 1/4 turn to get to 70#s . These are new ARP bolts . Initial torque was to 75 and no threads pulled as they all reset to 70# without stripping . I don't know if they stretched or what , but it stopped leaking water ......for now . I have an oil issue in the front , but it is more of a film then a leak . and I have a trans drip now and then so ill check that out this week . I also went up 1 jet size in all 4 corners.

If your up to date on this you know I have had issues with red lighting with the new combo . I have been leaving at 4200 with 45# in the 25" fronts and 14 in the rears . Well I made some changes for this weekend . dropped the 2 step to 3500 and set the fronts at 40 # . I run IHRA at Ben Bruce memorial racepark in Evadale , Texas and yesterday was the season opener . So first time trial im .020 red .
Image
I cooled it down and moved the 2 step to 3000 and the fronts to 34#
and was .031 green ....which was actually a relief to me .
Image
Cooled it down again and topped off the air and headed to first round thinking .031 was better than red . I added 2# to the fronts @36# and left the 2 step alone . Ended up with the 1st round W with a .022 light and scrubbing 5 mph at the end .

Image
Brought it back and cooled it down again and set up like round 1 and the dam .022 got me the bye . Since I had made a pass in the right and I ended up with a single I chose the left . .000 and 7 slow . The left lane was bad .
Image
Again I cooled it down and set up the same . After 3rd round they swap to a ladder and the best reaction time has lane choice . I chose the right lane better of the 2 and a faster car . set up a bit soft from the.000 .
and was .074
Image
They stacked the ladder again and amazingly I got lane choice again . Chose the right lane again Way late , but dead on 9 and she spun and I found the hole .
Image
Headed into the finals and I definitely do not have lane choice . I dial up 5 on what my split time tells me and start heating the bottle . Everyone has spun in the left lane , but most are on some sort of radial . I slow down extension on the rear 1 click and head up to the line . Sure enough I got the left lane . I told my opponent " you keep your Hoosier radial , ill keep my bias ply , 300 shot and the lane you don't want " . did a big burn out and BAM! .....it hooked . I tree'd him by .011 and took.008 strip on a double breakout for the win .

I think it will have to add some main jet to the carb . I bought a 950 HP and have it at the carb guy doing the E85 conversion now . If it moves the power up , it wont hurt me . the converter is 5200 . Here is a video.
