              Faster, be it improving my current engine or finishing my stroker motor. I would also be very pleased if the $$$ gods let me slip some paint repair in the budget.

                More air. Me thinks the old 950hp is about tapped out.



                Probably put a 2 circuit 1050 on it and see how it does.

                  Step ONE : sign up before or soon after squirrel

                  Step 2, already working on getting a 1/4 mile cam and ditch the low rpm try. New converter, maybe a dominator (not sure how streetable they are) or stack 2 fours on top. Then run this set up all winter (big gas bill) to clean out the bugs.

                  Step 3, Skip step 2 and concentrate on step 1.

                      Ported heads, a pile more lift in the cam, but not sure what to do with duration and overlap yet, and some rear axle upgrading. Can't decide between simply upgrading the axle or go for a ready built full axle.

                      Might weld in 8 O2 bungs into the headers if I'm feeling motivated.

                            I thought that's why they have parking lots at motels?
