Y-Block powered FED at Famoso Raceway

This is me (Tim McMaster) and my Y-Block Ford powered front engine gas dragster Elwood. It's our first time running the 1320 at Famoso Raceway just north of Bakersfield, CA in Oct. 2010. We did fairly well for our first time out, the car ran great and had very few problems. All this on my spare pickup engine.

Sehr Performance Machine / Randy's 292 Ford
Randy brought his 292s to us for a build. The first one had cracks in the block and both heads. Block number two was a winner and gave us a good place to start. After getting things all cleaned up and crack checked we began bringing together his good parts and ordering what we needed to get it where Randy wanted it to end up. Scott had to do some modifications to bring this little Y block up to date. A lot of the things that are normally available for current production engines were never made for 292's and 312's so you either accept that as a fact or adapt. We chose to adapt. Oil system mods were the first order of business because the Y blocks had issues with poor oiling and we wanted it to last. Scott also did a substantial amount of work in the heads and intake to wake it up. About the last thing on board was a new MSD ignition. Randy's original equipment was just too far down the road to make it worthwhile to make it work. Randy has said that he will probably never use all the torque and horsepower that is available but it's good to know that it's there should he decide to set it free and have some fun.

On-board footage of dragster crash
Blown head gasket dumps water in front of the tires causing dragster to veer into the wall and flip, landing upside down. Thanks to the excellent track emergency team and the strongly-built car, the driver sustained no injuries. The car is capable of 200+ MPH and sub-7 second 1/4 mile passes. It is powered by a turbo-charged 2.2 liter 4-cylinder GM EcoTech engine producing nearly 1600 HP.
