This is my wife and her 496 Chevelle. Pump gas, flat tappet,dual plane,
3:31 gears, 3500 stall,full Exhaust,
3800 lbs, old ET Streets. She uses it to get groceries and takes it to her
Mary Kay appointments. All three of our kids LOVE riding in the back and
She averages 13 mpg on the highway with the 750 double.
Update 7/07- On 93 octane, the budget 496 made 548HP at 5900 rpm and 574TQ
with big tube (2 1/4") headers at the crank on a Superflow 902 Dyno.
UPDATE 11/08- After three years and 5k street miles, 10 Dyno pulls, and 50+ passes at
the track, Leah has run a best of 11.57 @115.48 on pump gas and M/T Drag
radials, all motor. We tried a Powershot system on it 11/1/08, and with a
1/2 throttle launch went 11.07@120mph.
Larry Larson Runs 6's.mov
BangShift.com presents Larry Larson's 2009 Drag Week winning '66 Chevy II
running 6.934 at 211.59 mph in Las Vegas at the PSCA Street Car
Supernationals. This video shows you all the angles, from inside,
underneath the bumper, and outside the car. Larry's car was unchanged from
it's Drag Week trim, and had only been outfitted with a new pair of Hoosier
DOT legal "slicks". Over the 4 day event, Larry ran 6.99, 7.00, 6.96, and
finally 6.93. After the 6.93 on Saturday evening, we added air to the
tires, packed the chutes, filled it with pump gas, and cruised the strip
for about 4 hours while shooting video and photos. Stay tuned at
www.BangShift.com for a feature on Larry's car along with more killer 6
second and cruising video.
