I have been thinking about what changes you should make once you get your built motor installed. So before you have Sal put the new motor in, lets all look at what parts you have now, and what parts you should keep, and what you should change.

Here is what I think you should look into

First off you need to do some exhaust work- get the spent fumes out better. Maybee you can find a good used set of long tube headers.

2nd-you have to work on your pulley setup- use more boost to get off the line - less Nitrous off the line
After watching you run a few times you seem to over power the track in the first 60 feet.

3rd- lets think about a torque converter
While you have the engine out, this is the time to concider a better converter.

4th- tune the nitrous
once you can get your 60' times down, then use the wizzards system to it's full advantage.

This is the time to figure out what combination of parts you need to get the most out of the new motor. I think we can get your truck to run a lot better E/T's and make it way more consistant. So tell us what you want to run for times, and let us help you figure out the best combo to make this happen.

Then we are going to teach you how to use your new setup, in bracket racing events.

Don,
You must of missed the parts in Rob's long list. Not hard with so many to read. LOL

Rob is getting long tubes and a Greg Evans torque converter. I believe the pulleys are going to be increased also.
