new performance upgrades to my 67 beaumont...


It's been a while since ive posted at this site so here's a look at where my car is headed...

454..forged crank, gm thumb rods, probe forged -18cc pistons
gm "781" heads 2.19/1.88 valves fully ported, comp springs, crane 1.7 roller rockers
comp 282 hydrolic roller cam(230/236 duration @.050 lift)
eddy rpm perfprmer intake and 850 carb
msd dist and wires
redneck 3000 stall converter, t400 to a custom 9inch with 355 gears(still wanna hit the hiway)
march billet pully set, weiand polished water pump, power master 200amp alt
beecool polisher alum rad, flex a lite electric fan
cpp upper and lower tubular a-arms, hotchkis t.v.s. system(sway bars, springs and rear control arms. cpp disc brakes...

That's all i can think of this minute.
If my wife had any idea how much this has all cost i'd be divorced i think.
Probably could have bought a new car but it wouldnt have been as much fun.
My engine should be done in a couple weeks and im hopping for 525 hp.
I will dyno tune it and know for sure..

Yes you have been spending money. Big block parts are not cheap. Let us know how the dyno works out for you. Are you going to do a little 1/4 mile action with that combo ?

Just wondering , how did you hide those parts from your wife ? LoL  My budy would have parts ordered and sent to my address so his wife would not find out.

Take it from someone who has been married 28 years. Honesty is the best policy but maybe you'd rather have 525 HP over a wife. Really though so many guys I talk to at cruises are divorced and often the car has been a big part of it.

Actually she has seen most of the parts and understands what the car means to me( I had the car before I had her) Ive just kinda gotten crafty with my accounting.
All my big dollar purchases are done now so it's all good.
I'm planning on hitting the 1/4 mile but the closest one is in medicine hat(2hours away) That's why i didnt go with a taller gear set.
