We are taking our 10 second package and converting it to the 9 second package. We just sold a 9 second GSS 'Cuda to a guy in California. So the guys on the west coast and east coast will get to see some of our cars running at various tracks.

Our Silver car will be in Florida for testing at the LX event. Andy is making sure of that with a fast turn around on this block for us. It will be at Mopars @ the Strip as well with my wife racing the entire event. We will keep her in the 10's tho as she does not have a liscense YET... I'll blast some 9's with it tho,count on it.;)


Plan for the car is 9psi to run its current 10.60's on 93 octane which it did on the stock block, 14psi-16psi to run high 9's on 93 octane and meth. Then a shot of Nitrous to run well into the 9's on Q16.




PWR is the bomb, I am really enjoying the working relationship with Andy. Even tho he has started to stalk me.;)

10.60s on 9psi and 93 is impressive. What do you plan to have for the weight of the car in race trim?

That was full weight when it ran that with the exception of the skinnies and slicks. So alittle lighter than stock.

We won't change anything on that tune up because we already know it works. Only difference is now a forged engine instead of the stocker. Andy will have the block next week, he can post pictures of how nice the stock 08 pistons look after all the passes I made on 9psi and 93 octane.

I had to do that to baseline the car for resale. If I had run race gas the times would be wrong and we would have a problem with a car not running a number we advertised. I know some don't believe it will run mid 10's on 93 octane but it does. I had to insure it with alot of track tuning and keeping the car safe for customers. On the 14-16psi on 93 I will use meth as a safety net but will keep the timing mild as if the meth isn't working. Just a boost of octane to insure all stays safe under WOT.

That's awesome Tim. Hopefully I can meet up with you and introduce myself at one of the events this summer. Be thinking about coming to Challengerfest brah. Looking like it'll be spring.

We need to send Andy a snow shovel so UPS/FEDX can get in his driveway. On the other hand he should have a lot to ship when it does get there.

Everyone knows the eagle goes on the left, haha. That pic was originally to show the difference in combustion chambers. Nice catch.

Ok I haven't opened up any of the Gen III hemi's so I gotta ask? Which heads are the Eagle heads? I definately see the difference in the combustion chambers, is there any other differences? Will the Eagle heads work on the 6.1 & 5.7 ?
