Car was finished the night before racing and the junkyard water pump locked
up on the freeway and had to be changed in the Home Depot Parking lot so we
could make it to the race track. Got booted because the junk motor had a
camshaft seal oil leak. Instead of fixing the oil leak. I built an oil
catch pan (required for 11 second cars at our track in the next race season
anyways) so i would not have to repair the oil leak. I was not going to
spend money fixing this cheap junk motor. Great Depression Racing

Sleeper minivan beats riced Honda Civic on track
Because I get it a lot, yes, this was at PIR.
Just shows that a sleeper car can still put a Honda in it's place. This
Plymouth minivan was one of the fastest cars on the track finishing a
quarter mile at 123.42 MPH. Definitely not an easy task! Either way, it's
always fun to watch some fancy Honda get his ass handed to him on a

making when I pulled it out, to compare to the turbo DOHC 2.0 I'll be putting in it's place.
1st pull was 5psi, 2nd was 10psi, 3rd was 14psi.
Racing our 3 turbo Mopars at the track.
1989 Dodge Caravan and 1989 Plymouth Sundance, both are close to stock with

time out in over 2 years. Still trying to dial it in with the Nitrous.
