a lot of tuning to be done, but the results weren't bad.
1970 Chevelle 496 Street Car Pump Gas 11 sec
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.
69 Camaro Drag Race!
Dave pits the 540Merlin up against one of the nastiest street 69 Camaro's around. An amazing race!
I've opened an online store where you can get 540Merlin T-shirts and other
great stuff! This is the only source in the world for 540Merlin stuff.
