It got better....lol. We had great air last Saturday, car went 6.04 off trailer. It was lifting the front between knee and waist high. Kept adjusting fronts to get the front down. It would spin a little, 1.34 60 and still went 6.02. So, I went back, had fronts full loose, tight comp and ext in the rear and staged. It was very bad from there on. Ive been wanting to put it on the bumper, and I did just that. Buddy said bumper was dragging by the time I went by the tree. I thought, well, this is my chance to drag the bumper (not knowing I already was), when it was high enough, I was sure it was good, I shifted to 2nd. It didn't come down. It kept going higher. went up and then gas started pouring on windshield from carb. I panicked and lifted. got oil pan, trans, caster/camber plates.... hope that's all. Its out now with new oil pan installed. trans being fixed today. New travel limiters to be installed. They said it was dang near straight up and down. LOL. set it down at half track.

Maybe a progressive timer for all that NOS you "don't" use.

Doug has seen my car.....been a while, but I'm not sure this 5500 converter would like nitrous much. Anyway, it was worse than we thought. Block at rear on both sides was busted. tried to tig it, had small oil leak, so now block is possibly going to another welder that thinks he can fix it. I also have another aluminum block coming Saturday to use maybe. But in the meantime, we now have a iron block back between the fenders. It runs, but since I now have a moroso oil pan now, I am having some sealing issues I'm hoping to have resolved tonight. Its actually a 6.0 block bored with all of the 6.2 internals. Rumor is the iron block will make more power due to the block being more rigid and obtaining better ring seal. We shall see. Even tho it gained 93 lbs on the nose.
