Re: V8 Firefly up for auction on BaT

I "love" the car, but do not "want" the car. I've plotted and schemed it since the early 1990's, spent eight years building it, two years sorting it out. I also don't think I planned beyond "build it." Now that the build is done, I'm done with it. It was also not bad to...

Re: Kelowna - Year To Date Results

New Firefly engine is back together and on my "break-in test" stand, but I ran out of time. Theoretically almost twice the horsepower of the 5.0L (which wasn't much, honestly). Maybe maybe maybe it will be back together and sorted in time for an event. I'm still not dead last in the standi...

Re: Kelowna - Year To Date Results

No additional weight. Maybe actually less weight - the strokes are the same, but the 350 has more aluminum piston and less iron cylinder sleeve. If only I had a 400 kicking around....

Re: Kelowna - Year To Date Results

Firefly won't be out for a bit - the 30 year-old 170hp 5.0L died and is being replaced.

.... with a freshened 320hp 5.7L.

See you in a month or so.

Re: #4 - May 24 2018

Still not dead last, and still dominating E/Mod. I broke down and ordered heim joints for the rear. The poly bushings are reducing compliance making it harder to put power down, especially on this lot. Clearly I need to keep coming out more for further testing.... At least, if the wheels are spinnin...
