Only real good things that came out of the trip for me was. A new best trap of 130.89 and hanging out with my daughter .

Well I was puking a little coolant out from under the radiator cap. Then on my last run it really shoved it out, and busted a heater core hose, right as I passed through the traps. I big cloud of white steam pours out of the back. I was racing a Firebird who challenged me right after I went back to my 17's. He was running high 11's. He red lighted and I still drove around and beat him by 4 tenths. I ran a 11.6x almost as good as my best on the 15" ET streets that day.


Traction, track prep. and the staff were terrible. MY best et was 11.57 @ 130.89 with a 1.81 60" also best 60' of the day. I was just spinning through the first 1/2 of the 1/8.

I busted the hose right before I went through traps, and they gave hell for not getting over sooner. I told them I pulled over as fast as I could since I was going almost 130.

I had some extra hose, and my tools, so fixed it, and filled it back up, and all was well as long as I stay out boost.

My clutch fork also came off again at the track. and right before I got home the F'ng passenger side tailpipe falls off
Not good


I was having trouble deciding between heads or a bigger supercharger in may but I think my decision has be made for me. I knew I was asking for trouble with still using stock head bolts and gaskets but they lasted for 2 years. These are my plans for May now.


MMR stage 3 heads

Upgrade to MMR stainless Steel swirl polished valves

Upgrade to Comp high performance springs

Upgrade to Titanium Retainers

MMR Racing Bronze Valve Guides

ARP Harmonic Balancer Bolt

MMR/Felpro Head Gaskets

ARP Headstud kit 96-04

Thanks guys I just wish it wasn't 2 months until I can afford to fix it.

Here's a pic and vid. The camera is a cheap 5mp still camera so its hard to see the smoke right at the end

What are you reving that mod 900 to? I've had my eye on the MMR blocks since they came out and am hoping I can find something I can rev to around 7,000 to pick up quite a few PSI (after the cam install the car really starts pulling hard after 5,000 rpm and won't quit, I really want to see what happens if I can rev the snot out of it.) I'm guessing their or anyone else's strokers wouldn't be in my best interest for that?
