      It is actually the motor I use to run in the red car. Damon freshened up and I swapped the 572 heads for 440-1 CNC/345, and went from straight 2.25" headers to 2.25/2.125 stepped headers. I think I had too much heads and headers for the lower rpm cam.

      Have the engine pulled from the wagon on a stand, cleaned up, rockers backed off, wrapped - as a spare engine. It only has 100 passes on it and runs good.

      hoping to run 9.50. Need to take it to the track in the next week and try the 31" tires vs the 33", play with shock settings, and wheelie bar height. Changed up a lot (too much) over the winter. I'm hopping to get to the track twice before Bradenton.

        Are those TTI headers?
        I run the 2" to 2.125 TTI headers.

          Nope, Matt Wright made them custom. No one makes race headers for a 60-62.
