This is my new 462 ci Big Block firing up. It will hopefully be put on the drag strip next spring, estimated horsepower is somwhere in the 600 range at the flywheel. It will have a 4:11 posi rearend with Disk Brakes.(12 Bolt) Projected ETS once all dialed in is in the low 7s 1/8 mile and 10.90s to 11 1/4 mile. Guarenteed to eat and destroy any import car in its path!
1/8 Mile Run at Ware Shoals Dragway 11/7/09 1971 Monte Carlo SS Project RICEKLR
Ran my quickest time so far of a 7.41 and MPH of 92. The "RiceBurner" came
to life a little over a year ago. Came a long way so far, looking next year
on better prepared track and drag suspension on front and rear to run in
the 7-7.2 range. The car is going to my buddy's house for paint in January.
Car is a Street Driven Car, and was driven to the track and back! just
removed the mufflers!
Firing up the 427 for the first time
Warts and all, here is an unedited video of starting up for the first time
the 427 I built for the wagon. Once the timing got set right it ran great.
Unfortunately we had to stop and start a few times to chase down coolant
leaks. Better coolant leaks than fuel leaks!
You can see lots of photos and info on the whole project here:

22 Years later, 1970 Monte Carlo 4 speed part 1
My father and I recreated a video we made of my first Monte Carlo. That was
1986, this is 2008! The first car was a 350 2 barrel and power glide trans.
This is a 350 4 barrel and 4 speed. Funny thing is, both cars were built in
the same plant about a day apart!
1971 Monte Carlo with 454ci engine, 3" original Flowmaster 50 series mufflers, no tailpipes
This is my 1971 Monte Carlo. The video clip is for sound comparisons for
different Exhausts. The engine is
about 9:1 compression and has a small hydraulic roller cam (224/234 deg @
0.050", .527"/.544" lift). The intake is an Edelbrock RPM air gap, and the
carb is a 750 Mighty Demon mechanical Secondary. The headers are Hooker
Competition headers with 2" primaries and 3.5" collectors which go into 3"
dual Exhaust with 3" 50-Series
Flowmaster mufflers which end right before the rear end.
