That's cool.  There was a previous post, we talked and I thought you mentioned you were running Erson rollers, because I was looking for a supplier.
  Ya polyglass tires are tricky.  I always came out just off idle, but I was only running 3.31 gears and a tight 1600 stall converter.  So it wasn't that bad.

   I'm wanting to do this with my SCJ now.  Since I have to build the motor anyway, I thought I'd tinker inside.  Not really interested in falling within the rules, I just want to see how fast it'll go on polyglass tires.  I just have to find a good machinest.

   Where did you get the Xpipe system?  I see that Pypes makes one, but it used 1970 style mufflers.

Ah, I wasn't aware you were talking about another car, that would explain the rocker mixup then  ;D   I'm in Prescott Arizona.

   I use the Pypes setup with the transverse muffler on my 71 ventura and it was excellent fit on that particular car.  I haven't tried it on anything else though.

  I guess you are using a dual muffler 1970 style system then,,,as far as I can tell that's all that Pypes makes for the stangs.
   That's where I'm at a crossroads right now.  I plan to keep the car true to form and correct, but I want it to run hard. I know the stock 69 CJ system will kill HP.  I'm at the point that if Pypes or another company made a nice X-pipe system with the factory style transverse muffler I'd probably go that route, so as not to stray too far from the original design so to speak.  But I don't know of one.

   I have a feeling you and I will have alot to talk about when I get going on this.  Just something about stock appearing cars on little polyglass tires going fast that really does it for me  ;D  Who knows, when I get this done, maybe I'll bring the bird back and let my wife drive it while I pilot the stang.

Dynomaxx makes a high flow transverse muffler buy some mandrel bends and find a good exhuast guy.http://www.dynomax.com/mufflers.php   I don't know any engines guys in that area but ask around make sure they know FE engines or you might no0t be happy.I will answer any question to the best of my ability the more Fords out there racing the better.

Sounds doable.  Maybe the Xpipe front section, with the dynomax muffler and fab the rest.  I have a fairly well equipped shop here, so it's not an issue.  I'll have to figure it out when I get to that point.

  Right now I'm just worried about a machinest.  I pretty much know what I want to do with the motor, I just don't know who to trust with it.  Mine is a C6 as well with 3.91's. I figure it's a pretty decent combination for what I want to do.  I'll keep the stock stall, of which I have no idea where it might flash, it's been parked since about 85?  So I don't remember.

   Anyway, congrats on the ET and keep it up.

69mustangSCJ,
      Kip Martin is "down the hill" in the Phoenix area. He's built many NHRA record holding 428's for Stock Eliminator. He has a LOW 10 second '64 Mustang with a 289 now. I'm sure he could help you. let me know and I'll get you contact info.

   No kidding??  Let me guess, the car is black??  I think I've talked to him before at some of the Nostalgia meets at Speedworld.  Little 289 4 speed car still running the little (450 cfm???) autolite carb per NHRA Stock rules.  At the time I wasn't interested in getting this SCJ running.  I was just more interested in hearing him talk about that little stang.  Nothing I like more than NHRA Stock and Super Stock Eliminator racing.  It has to be the same guy, because I just don't remember seeing any other Stock Eliminator 289 stangs around here.
     I don't know how to get ahold of him however, if you could PM me info that would be great.  Thanks, Larry.

    Larry ,
   That is Kip. Before Kip relocated to AZ he lived in Kansas and was responsible for some of the fastest CJs in the country. I'll get his number and PM it to you.

Sounds great, I figured that was him.  I highly doubt he would remember me, he probably gets alot of people asking questions about his car.
    Is he getting his work done from a local shop or does he have his own machine shop?  Thanks again Randy.  Cheers, Larry.

Thanks Randy, at the very least I'm sure he could clerify some of the ideas rolling around in my head.
  There is a meet at Speedworld coming up Sept 2nd through the 4th called Arizona Fuel and Gas Nationals.  Gassers and Nostalgia stuff, maybe he will be there?
  If not the next Southwest Nostalgia Drags isn't until November 14th, quite a ways off. If he has his own shop and he were interested, I'd just shoot down the hill and stop in.

Thanks Steve for sharing all the things your doing to your car.  Your last personal best 12.43 and 109 was surprising enough.  Your new best is still on poly glass?  I thought I was pushing the envelope at 34 degrees actual so I guess there's still room.  Next time I have some money its gotta be for tires and then back to San Diego 1/8 mile track. Just like to get in to the 9's somewhere.  Keep it up and keep us posted.  Brian

    Your car is even more impressive when you compare it to my 10 second, 10" Goodyear slick car's best 60' of 1.47. My 60' with a G70-14 would be 2.00 for sure , there is NO WAY I could get it to hook like yours. NICE job !!!!
