    Tommy, Thanks for the vote of confidence! It was a CrAzY year and a lot of changes. Went over a second faster than last year and gained 8mph over the 156. We are already making plans for this next year and a couple of big changes to get RoadCone even faster....

    It’s been a long time for an update to this thread, but it’s time. The Whipple took me to 7.9’s @180mph. I know it had more, but had an opportunity to do something completely different with RoadCone.

    I have never owned a turbo car…. But I soon will!! I’m switching to twin Precision Turbos, 72/75 with billet wheels and ceramic bearings and T4 flanges. In preparation for this we have actually downsized a few cubic inches for thicker sleeves. We are going with TBX Extreme Race Turbo cams, RPG secondary chains. Almost forgot the billet Frankenstein intake!! The transmission is being upgraded with internal and external dump valves. The new torque converter will be a Protoque bolt-together. That’s just some highlights of the build. This is all in hopes to build 1800-2000 hp!! Looking to improve to at least a mid-7 second car. Wish I could post picture, but soon on RoadCone Racing I will. This is the first group that I have disclosed any plans too.

    Nice stuff Terry. The intake looks to have been 3D printed given the lines in it. Possibly? We have been printing (technical term is growing not printing) parts at work on a 3D metal printer for some time now.

    BTW If you're feeling kind and the Whipple kit is free to a good home, I am willing to give it one. LOL!

    The intake is made by Frankenstein. It is CNC’d from a block of aluminum. Unfortunately the Whipple is already gone to a new home. They took exhaust, cams and few other things from my build.

    That’s too bad you have to cover up that work of art!
