Tie the subframes and add the torque boxes. If it's really making 600hp the uni-body isn't going to like it. Upgrade the brakes too. Once you're going, you gotta stop.

this reminds me of a track I raced at. Our weight was decided by engine cubic inches. And we had to have it lettered on the hood for the tech guy. So I labeled mine as a 286ci and was really running...

I think the fee was when the engine guy was going to tear it down but he wasn't sure if MonsterBilly was going to rebuild it. In which case a fee was in in order. If it's a done deal on the rebuild...

If the new engine guy is solid and has good rep I'd pull it and take it to him. If he's got his own machine equip then I bet the parts bill will be fairly small. You;ll need the normal bearings and...

Looks pretty solid. Places to check are the inner fender wells around the engine. They rust out and they don't make replacements for them. Also check the frame rails in front where the lower cross...

If it's all new I'd take it to a different local engine builder and get it sorted out. I'd definitely look at a better oil pan with baffles and a good oil pump. If you know any of the local racers,...
