    Firebird... RvW build

    some have probably seen it on the book, so here it is,
    1967 pontiac firebird pro mod, (no its not the old crowmod) was a blower car from California running easily into the 3s in the 1/8 with about 1500hp less than what we have planned for it,

    my mate Nathan has a driveline spare so we will be using that in it, he will drive the car to start with ill keep racing the commodore, chances are he will probably buy this off me and put the rx3 drive line in the other car they have getting built thats still 12 months off being done.

    driveline is basically the same as the commodore

    Billet big block chev bottom end,
    Brodix big chief 18 deg cylinder heads
    plazmaman intake manifold
    18x xx racing injectors
    Haltech Nexus with all the fruit
    custom Tefzel wiring harness
    Rossler 3 speed t400
    Garrett G57 102mm turbos
    Turbosmart Egates
    Turbosmart BOV's
    on a 315 radial..

    car will be here on friday morning then we start fab work etc,

    Lol @ running 3s on the 1/8 with 1500hp LESS than you're planning. Must have a bloody good chassis setup to run that quick.

    Speaking of Crowmod, and by extention sickseconds, how hard would it be to set either this or your Commodore up to do Drag week? Or would you build a car specifically for that type of event, running unlimited class?

        we dont run any water in our motors and they are solid so no water can be put in them which sort of limits them to 5-6min of run time...
