The Story of this car..
Brought out storage,in year 2000
had 2 differant motor builds both whipe the camshafts,little known to
people back then was the camshaft manufactors fault ,the cams metal was
flawed,the 90's SP cams
the car goes to Bowling Green Custums in Alt GA,
He has it 4 years, charges me $14,000 for Yeap,straight from his shop a
Car goes to KDK Performance in FL
gone billit rollor cam
$8000 rebuild,car blows up 1/2 track at 110mph
3 total rebilds all i payed for,Dynoed an to the track same
thing, 1/2 track garnade First Run !!
4th new motor bought an payed for, i pull car out KDK
spend over $30,000 in cash an parts totaling over 3 years
I call Cal Hartline,He recommeds Lamotta performance
The new motor from KDK goes striaght on the Dyno an BOOM!! headgasket
launches as all the times before
I asked Jake at Lamotta if he can fix it, an add GNX style dash an new Intercooler,6 months later
motors done at Heartbeat racing engines,Even though Lamottoa dropped my
motor to him for whatever reason i had to go pick it up.(that cost the
tranny in my truck!)After Lamotta installs the motor an fires it,I called
Jake an he said i quote "Its fine, ready to go"..I pick it up, Its belowing
white smoke out the exshuast very 10 minutes,water temps high, oil
pressuers All over the place!!!,,the dash speedo don't work, (the whole
reason i had the GNX dash kit Installed!!) an the grill ,Lamotta broke the
headerpanel flap so my Grill dangles in place,had to buy whole new front
headlight pannel,won't mention them storing my car under a car on lift that
$13,000 in total parts an labor back to square one
Piston pin was riding up an down the #4 cylinder wall
Car stays in My Garage..
Dave at Heartbeat racing engines rebuilt an sleves the damage piston pin
cylinder an i have him add GN1 stroker kit..The Motors now perfect an i
have over 2000miles on it
Today July 27th 2010 the cars at ProFab in Tampa having Matt inspected the
suspenion along with the brakes,Possiably adding a 6 point roll cage...8^)
Moral to this build,Try your Hardest to Have one All-in-One shop work on
your car,Or you'll get the Third person run around,(example), Oh i'll take
your car an your money,but its the machist fault or part builders fault why
nothing works,pay us, blame them...
First time you here that....Run!!!
Get all work in Writing,You might need it later

Brian Cotton making the 1st pass off the trailer with our V6 turbo TType at Cecil County with the Pumpkin. This
is a new record setting pass for our car. You can see me, a concerned
father watching his son make his fastest pass ever.. a proud father, I can
also tell you my wife Lorrie was just as proud and emotional as I was
watching from the other side of the track. A big thank you to Richie R from
a great video shot , thanks so much!!
