      E Moo - Call Texas Speed and Performance if you are serious about purchasing speed parts for an LS or LT series late model GM small block from 4.8L to 7.0L. Keep in mind the cam in Garrett's C6 (Auction Corvette) is likely designed to work best in turbocharged applications and may not be optimum for your setup so be sure to tell them your engine's specifications and what you plan to do with your car. They will give you knowledgeable advice and provide top quality parts and services.

      Steven Pocius - Any true, high quality oil will not froth. You'd be surprised at how many name brand oils do though. A windage tray helps to keep the oil where it belongs by deflecting the turbulence created by the crankshaft. The baffles in an oil pan help to retain oil around the oil pump pickup IF they are properly located for specific racing applications. ie: conventional drag racing pans have a rear pickup w/ a deep sump and conventional circle track racing pans have a right side pickup because of the g forces or partial g forces experienced while running on each's respective courses under hard acceleration and/or turning at high speeds. The conventional road race pans often have utilized a rearmost swivel pickup that works for both left and right turns.

      SleeperC-10 - Low 7s with a Glide. High 6s a likely scenario if it had a body to vastly improve aerodynamics. Check out the wind tunnel video w/ Leroy if you haven't already. The test engineer explains in detail how much horsepower is lost due to aerodynamic drag and Leroy's aero is worse than horrible.

    You may b right but they r fracture rods and the stock rod bolts r torque to yield, I will agree if they used aftermarket bolts like arp.
    I guess if they do a tear down and show bearings and crankshaft then we will know whether out of round or honing material destroying crankshaft, camshaft, bearings.

    Im just wondering if the engine in ruby on the 9.31 @ 145 mph ruby's First pass was that 4.8 liter truck engine and if so do you think it made any difference between it and the 5.3 liter?

    RPM did a great job with the PowerGlide (we called them Slush Boxes back in the day). You praise the transmission but leave out the third member. You have a bullet-proof Ford 9" design. Ford had an "N" case cast out of nodular iron and designated with an "N" between the webbing above the pinion input shaft. The preferred differential back in the day was a Detroit Locker as it uses a ratchet mechanism to allow the wheels to turn independently on cornering rather than clutch plates. They locked under torque to give you the effect of a spool.

  • Yan Elgaard

    Great run!
    Sorry she fell on her face in the second round but if I could offer a little bit of advice from 40 years of working with turbos. You got to let that thing thing cool down after a hot run!
    When a turbo is spinning as hot as it is you can't shut the motor down until you're back down to temperature. If you don't let it idle for a minute (literally) and get some cool oil into the bearings of that Turbo that thing is going to shatter and send all that crap into the motor. What happens is the oil gets so hot and so thin that it just drains right out of the turbo and then the bearings are bone dry while the turbo is still smoking hot. Let that puppy cool down a little bit.
    Best of luck hope it's nothing drastic, get a good oil pan on that thing like a deep sump with the Deep pickup tube.
    See y'all in Texas!
