Hello.....

Post by -Kustom- » Sat Apr 21, 2012 10:43 am

Hi all

Just thought I would introduce my self, my name is Chris from up north in Cumbria.
I'm going down to Big Bang next weekend with my 13 window to hopefully get myself a sub 18 second run.
Any body else going?

Chris

Good luck, what engine spec are you running and what do you hope to run?

I'm not aiming high, I'll be happy with under 18, as every thing is untested so there will be a lot af setting up to do.
The engine is a selfbuilt 2387, cnc wedge port heads 44x37.5, eagle 2289 cam, 48 ida's etc, etc
