NHRA Record Holder

I know this site doesnt have much to do with nhra class racing, but this past weekend I set the NHRA SS/E record in my 427 ford fairlane. It was a 9.65 by a hemi, but we set it friday at a 9.52. I elected not to tear down that day, because I knew it was faster...I made some changes and saturday evening I ran a 9.49... another ford in the record books!!!!!!!!

Stephen,

Your Fairlane is a 2x4 motor? What does a Thunderbolt fall into naturally SS/B?

we can run any cam, any intake that is a stock configuration and fit under the stock hood. Heads can be ported but they have to retain a certain runner volume.
