  1. my 70 wildcat at bowling green best so far 13.008 but i know it has a 12 in it
  2. when i started i ran low 16's all stock 2.78 open rear(but did get up to 19 mpg on the interstate) the converter dropped me down to 15.4 a posi carrier and dist re curve got me down to low 15's a 1 inch 4 hole carb spacer a 175 degree thermostat and cool October temperatures got me to a 14.58 basically all stock for a rear you need to find a 67-70 riv GS (these all came with a 3.42 gears) you can take the carrier and gears out and install in your rear i found mine for 500 on ebay bought the the whole car and parted it out or build a custom ford 9
  3. yep i got a turbo 400 trans as for gears i dont think you can get 4.11 for the buick 9 3/8 big car rear they did make some 3.90 sets but they are real rare it took me 7 years to find a set of 3.42's scott
  4. well the nats are over the wildcat ran very well best et was 13.13 best mph was 103.9 average et was 13.20's my last run i got a .006 light.......sadly on the red side........ but hey i was this close to a perfect light next on my list is to remove the 2.78 gears(yes 2.78's) and install the 3.42 rear add a new converter and shoot for the 12's....... just to clarify this wildcat is no longer stock new engine 462 ci 10.15 to 1 compression b4b intake TA SE stage 1 heads shorty headers scott
  5. just emptying the trunk weighed the car today 4375 lbs with me in it scott
  6. at the GS nationals this week my best so far is 13.13 @ 103.xx car is pulling strong up to 5700rpms hoping for more with the cool air on Saturday just need to shave 14 more hundredths...................... 12's would be sweet........... scott
  7. the only thing i have done is block off the return line will have to take it out and see what happens scott
  8. well after some fine tuning it is pulling up to 5500 smooth no popping spitting or sputtering time to take it back to the track scott
  9. exhaust done dynomax super turbo long case mufflers with 2 1/2 " duals out the back went to the track and i have problems.......... car went 13.84 but was cutting out / popping and cracking at around 4700 rpm's never got a good run in.......... on a better note just got back from the BPG meet where i picked up a 9 3/8's big car 3.42 posi rear huge thanks to Tom Wagner scott
  10. just an update.................................................. its taken me two years and many dollars but this was just dropped into my wildcat it is up and running going to the exhaust shop in the morning gotta get all the bugs worked out but i am on the road again scott
  11. i finally broke down and got a set of the infamous 70 wildcat shorty headers fresh with a new coat of high temp paint had to raise the engine a little but as TA claimed a direct bolt on although a tight fit my new(used intake) used poston black valve covers I still need to prime the oil pump and button it all up for cam break in and then i will top it all off with the gm buick chrome breather more photos to follow scott
  12. installed the ported iron heads and cam........ found 4 holes on each head that had to fill..... got the exhaust and timing cover back (after a 2 week wait):mad: and applied a new coat of paint new stage 1 fuel pump installed new oil pump gears ands front seal then this came in...... more to come scott
  13. we its time to get ready for the GSCA nationals again...... i have been gathering parts for a couple of years wanting to upgrade the wildcat so here we go........................... started here with a dirty engine compartment went all the way down to a short block I only broke 1 bolt in the exhaust manifold and found 2 in timing cover already broken.......sent to machine shop for removal and media blasting new parts are 72 stage 1 ported heads TA 284-94H cam and lifters B4B intake more to come.................. scott
