Are these needed on a street car/ street racer? Has the front end been weakened enough to warrant these on a driver car?

Making a few changes to the car recently.



We'll probably wait until later in the year for this upgrade. From memory I think Ed said this was 70 lbs lighter than the iron block in the car now.


Here's a couple pics from the Speed Ventures event at Fontana a few weeks back.

It's been a long time since an update. The engine lost oil pressure on turn one at the Auto Club Speedway so the car has been sitting while the attention was directed towards our 2nd Gen Camaro product development. The new engine is being built using the aluminum block above. We're also moving up from the 210 AFR heads to 225's, bumping the compression to 12:0 and adding a much more aggressive cam. This new engine should make 600 at the tires with ease. This engine should be 80 or so lbs lighter also.


We're also changing to dry sump to make sure this doesn't happen again. It may look the same but Ed built a new cage made of Chromoly instead of DOM. This new cage is 80 lbs lighter than the old one.

What size are your lines to and from the oil tank? I had a friend that used a 3 stage pump on a very similar engine, and had oil pressure problems when running at Willow Springs. He fixed it by running a AN-16 supply and a AN-20 return. With the smaller lines the tank would almost run dry.

We're running -12 lines based on Lingenfelter's recommendation.

Once again, Ed is going to a wider tire because there's no way he's going to allow a Camaro have more tread width than him.

We had a blast at the V8 Builds event at Streets of Willow. The car is performing extremely well with the new engine and tires.

A few weeks back we took the car to the Auto Club Speedway to compare the Mustang to our Camaro #projectreddawn


This rivalry is going to be a heck of a lot of fun to watch play out.

A couple more track days for Ed and the Mustang.


NMCA Autocross at the Auto Club Dragway in Fontana.






We also ran the Extreme Speed event with Redline Time Attack also at the Auto Club Speedway but in the infield track. This will be the same track configuration as Optima in a couple weeks.
