Check out my new motor
from Ram Racing
My 500's other engine blew in Englishtown New Jersey. The guy who sold me the car lied about a few things with the motor, but, oh well, that's just how it goes sometime!
That's why I had an engine built. The motor has 451 cubes with a set of Indy heads (ported), Harland Sharp valve train, Racer Brown Cam, all the goodies inside CP pistons, Manely rods.
The engine put out 622 hp and 600 ft/lbs. Pretty Sweet!
Although I haven't introduced the engine to my 500, I'm sure she'll love it!
My other upgrades over the past few months have been a Be Cool Radiator, new taillight lenses (nos) and a few other goodies.
Like I have been saying since the beginning you are doing a great service to our hobby (obsession) -- you know what I mean.
Update November 11, 2003
The engine is running great. Blew the tranny but the car has a fresh one with all the goods. I switched to a Turbo Acton rev valve body. Also went with a 9.5 Dynamic converter. I just upgraded to a Magnaflow 500 pump and 4 port reg.
Finally had a chance to race the car last week and it ran 10.80's all day. I know she has more still working on the combo and launching. I am slowly gaining more knowledge in Racing. By the way the car weighs 3689 with me in it. (I'm good for 190lbs).
