Opps, I see that the pictures don't come through all the time. Maybe you have to be logged in to see them.

I had just copied the post I did on the 348/409 site. It might not have transferred the photos properly.

Here are some links to build threads from this site...

http://canadianponcho.activeboard.com/t55692933/aluminum-409-hits-the-dyno/

I hope those all come through OK.

Good question.

We sold the 55 Chevy a couple of weeks ago.

So if we sell the Pontiac, we won't be racing this year.

We do have another 409 engine that we might use to build a street/strip car, but if we do we'll probably aim for about 11.50 in the 1/4 mile. Any faster than that and you have to install a roll bar etc.

Sorry to hear you won't be racing this summer. Wow the 55 is gone and the 61 is up for sale, I guess this means the Z11 engine will go into some thing new. I have seen the 61 a few times and it is totally awesome.

Awesome car Jim, what's the et for the replacement? I also think $39,000 is cheap, replacement cost is well north of that.
