Update on the Black Beast
Hey guys! I've been without internet access for a while now, so I've been away from the forums. Glad to be back!!!
Just a quick update on the truck; it ran a 13.23 at Mokan Dragway in Missouri a few weekends ago. I raced a Mustang Mach 1 and lost by only a fender in both runs. The next two runs were against a friend that followed me to the strip. His Volkswagen Jetta GLI (Turbo!) didn't have a chance on me!
Finally, our other buddy in his Lexus IS300 got smoked one final time by the Beast before we departed for home.
It's been a great truck, and the addition of the V8 was simply the best thing I have ever done to any vehicle. Since I completed my swap, I dropped a 4.7L V8 into a Durango (originally V6), and a 4.0L Inline 6 into a Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Let the motor swaps continue!
