Number 10 Qualifier in Ohio’s Fastest Street Car
Race held at Norwalk Raceway Park 2001
My Chevelle came from the factory
with the LS-5 454 engine and TH400 automatic transmission. I have owned this car since 1989. It was a stripped out racecar shell when I
purchased it. I put the car together the
best I could with the money I had at the time.
In 1996, I won several races and came in Second Place in points in the Hot Rod
Magazine Real Street Class. The car ran
high 10’s with a good Factory
head combo. Hot Rod changes the rules
for 97 and allowed the use of many high dollar aftermarket components. I tried to keep up with the class but could
not compete with the cubic dollars others were shelling out. I went a little too far with Big parts
(heads, carb, cam).
The car was not very enjoyable to drive.
I have since decided to turn the car back into a fast, street driven
The Current Motor is a basic 396
(purchased on Ebay..drove to Chicago to pick it up). It has Factory stock heads and an unmassaged
Performer intake. Sound pretty
boring…Yes but I topped the motor off with an ATI Procharger
Supercharger from SDCE. The folks at SDCE added some custom work
that makes this setup even better. A
spring loaded tensioner replaces the std hold belt
tight/tighten nut setup. The new tensioner tightens as belt stretch occurs(quite a bit under
boost). With some help from the guys at
DCI MOTORSPORTS (330)628-3354 the
best ET to Date is 10.33 and best MPH of 137.
The combination has plenty left, as I haven’t worked all the bugs
out yet. The goal was to run 10’s
on pump gas and stock heads. Then
I’ll install a set factory oval port heads that have some work done on
them including 2.25/1.88 valves.
I’ll update the page as I work through the combination.
