Hey all, it's been a long time since I have participated in the community here (about 8 years). I have noticed some familiar names still here and I hope all is well with you guys.
After catastrophic failure, occurred at the track 8 years ago, I had to put the stang in storage. Being a new father at the time, I simply couldn't afford it anymore. Plus the Ol' Lady wasn't too thrilled about the 8k invested in the motor being destroyed.
The old 306 combo, which consisted of FTI AFR 185's and FTI Cam, topped with a Victor Jr. and Pro-Systems carb did go [email protected]
, blowing up in the lights on a 100 shot, with a 1.34 60'.
It was definitely an awesome 10 seconds, that ended with the sensation of hitting a brick wall at the end
With life changing events, and a new outlook on life, I have the itch again for the 1320.
The following is info about the "Heartbreaker". The asterisk signifies what is new to the combo:

The estimated timeframe for completion is, well, not soon. But after seeing DeuceCoupe's and Sick89Coupe's threads, it inspired me to start one of my own.
Hopefully some of you will enjoy my journey to getting the "Heartbreak of Today's Chevrolet" back on the street/strip.
