  • lets see your HOT ROD

    this is a motorsports forum, so lets see some HOT RODS !!!

    here is my pride & joy. many mods, many more to come. the engine is stock, except for what you see, not even computer programing yet. it has a mild stall, and a 3.73 posi. fuel cell under the bed. bed mounted battery & disconnect.
    gimme some slicks and i bet i get 12's. i did ALL the work to it, except tint the windows (i do know how to do that now).

    the supercharger is custom fit. i bought a kit, then a few years later modified it to take the LARGE intercooler that fits where the a/c condencer used to be. i did it all. i made that box on top of the throttle body. no real welding on that , but i am now going to redo that, with some 200dx welds
    evenyone talks about boost drop when an intercooler is added. well guess what. my engineering took the 10ish psi i had, and made it into 14+ psi. NO pulley or blower changes AT ALL. well, i did machine the blower pulley a few .001's to give it better grip. it now has a 3 1/2" exhaust, this is the reason i got into welding. it has snowballed from there = way cool.
    layin rubber = easy, my foot is not on the brake in this pic, and thats with the stock 3.08 open rear, AND it layed posi burnouts without a posi. 275-60-15 at 25 psi.

    enjoy the pics of my hard work. and lets see yours.

          Nice clean work...especially on the plumbing!

          I have been thinking about adding a intercooler to the current Paxton...going to require custom plumbing considering Paxton doesn't make a kit for the old SN units...

          here's my road racer...have much planned for the new year

            Well I don't really have a hot rod, I prefer the sleeper approach, but I like your truck. Pretty incognito.

            I had a roots blower on this one as well, on a 2v/cyl motor combo. Now I got rid of that whole combo, starting out this time with a 4v/cyl setup. Amazing airflow, I'll go N/A first, and see what she'll do, next time I get some cash for her, some other type of F.I. will be installed, but not before forged pistons/rods,... again...

                    I have a fleet of those, I would need to build 4 of them then. They are pretty stable though and are built really well. The only structural work I had to do to one was when someone ran into something with one and modifying the battery boxes and putting the cargo boxes on them. They are all exactly identical except for some tires. I am going to get a pic of my Dad and his dog, it jumps on the seat everytime he gets on. One of them I have the glovebox full of basic hand tools and thats handy. They work great for project work, we throw the equipment on the back like a power wheelbarrow. We used to have Honda 4 wheelers but these are so much nicer.

                      I don't have any pics but mine is a black 93 Mark VIII, 32 valve 4.6L with a chip adjustment and traction loc. Runs solid and still gets 25 MPG, oh yea it runs 13.8, 1/4 mile. Luxury car ride and its a hot rod to boot.

                      Great thread,

                        I thought I'd jump in on this, we have been racing junior dragsters for ten years but now that the boys are too old it's time to get my old junk out of the corner. The front end, headers, transmision and all of the tin are in the trailer for the winter[and decade] freshen up but you can kind of see what it's supposed to look like. The chassis is by Wayne County before they went Pro Stock racing. It has run some 9.20's with a 292cu in and a clutchless liberty but now is in the 50's range with a mild 355 and a glide. I was always surprised that miller never really had a presence at the major drag races. I also popped a pic of my blue stack in for the heck of it. I hope others will post some pics as it is interesting to see what vices others have as a result of the welding obsession. It looks like the other projects on this thread are of really high quality and detail. Good luck to all in the coming year , JEFF
