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:

Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift: Monte Carlo
When Dennis McCarthy hit the ignition on The Fast & the Furious: Tokyo
Drift's 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, it was as if the whole world stopped
for a moment in anticipation. As the starter spun, no one dared breathe, it
seemed, for fear that the Holley carburetor atop the Bill Mitchell "World
Class" 509-cubic-inch big-block V8 would suck in the entire atmosphere in
one mighty gulp. Then the engine exploded to life: A big-block with a big
cam sounds like tectonic plates colliding.

1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS All Street Project Car
This is my 1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS. I have owned this car for 13
years and it has been in the family for over 26 years. The car has just
under 29,000 original miles. The engine and drivetrain is all original as
well as the paint and interior. I didn't drive the car much, so I decided
to make a few subtle changes, mostly in the stance, so I would drive it
more. Just don't care for the stock stance on these cars. For the front I
used 2" drop Belltech spindles and 1" drop Belltech springs. For the rear I
used OPG 3" drop rear springs. 3" total drop front and rear. I used
Belltech Street Performance shocks on all four corners. The wheels are
Center Line Retros 18 x7 front, 18 x 8 rear. Nitto NT555 tires 225/45 in
the front, 255/45 in the rear. Also for a little more sound, I went with
Flowmaster Super 40 mufflers and custom tailpipes. I drive the car a lot
now just cause I enjoy it so much more. I didn't cut anything and I have
everything to put the car back original if I ever decide to in the future.
Thanks for looking!
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.
