JUST A SMALL UPDATE ON THE CAR FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO SOCIAL MEDIA.
Did you beef up the bottom end? Weren't you in the low 10s with the stock bottom end?
10.1 @ 148 on stock rods with 13:1 CR wiseco pistons.
This motor is block filled, 3.3, wiseco 11:1 pistons, and CP Carillo H beam rods
First start just happened!
Zach, you crazy... but in a good way. Keep up the impressive work!
Thanks Bud, looks sick, 100% confidence in your twisted mind, you know I can't join due to witness protection program.
Zach that is a thing of beauty!
It sure is.
Not just the motor and all its' respective parts, but it seems that Zach has been putting some time in on the body/paint as well.
Look'n sharp AF.

How much Cost CP Carillo H beam rods? What is it part number on Carillo web?
I think he's running the custom straight cut gears set that's 1 of 5 ever made, and the Quaife differential.
Are you the same Ransom from back in the earlier days with a fast black gen 1 SHO for mile or mile and half speed competitions?
Ransom he is!
As far as trans, Tony’s gearset and quaife. Tony made 10 a few years back. Josh made 6 many years ago.
That's the reason I asked. Even a special shimmed trans with a shot peened and cyro 3rd gear, if I allow 3rd to see 15 psi of boost, poof! it's gone. 4th has seen 21 psi and it's still hanging on.
Oh, nice that's indeed the person I was thinking of. I never forgot his SHO as well as yours! Hopefully both are still running great with a lot of horsepower after all this time. Thanks for confirming.
Interesting on the tidbid that 16 sets were made, and not 5. Thanks for the clarification. I wish I had one, but I know I'd need a brinks truck for it if I can even find any for sale. LOL!
Hey man, it's good to see you're still around, and with that same SHO. I remember the MPHs you used to do that was impressive. I'm sorry to hear about your third gear woes. Mad horsepower problems..
I think you definitely need one of the 16 straight cut gear sets out there with what kind of power you are pulling from your '89. It seems like if it is working for Blue Turd's car that it might work out for you just as well?
Thanks for the update, because I'm kinda one of those people. I'm working on it now though, LOL.
Well, hey, may I please ask who made those head gaskets for you? They look nice.
The rods are really nice as well. Were those one off set they made for you, or is there a part number for a SHO set?
The rods are built to order. And the head gaskets are from SCE Gaskets
The transmission is the HD gearset from Tony, and a quiafe diff. The transmission case has also been welded and braced
So what's the HD gearset? I've heard of them and know they're like $5k, but I dont know much else. And is that a custom copper HG?
shonut and maybe texanTony ran a small batch buy on custom heavy duty gears a while ago. It might be archived if you try and look for it.
