Default Another money pit

Finally slowed down on my home improvement projects to get my Camaro running. It has sat for 5 years.

Everything was done to support 1200 hp, but the engine is just a beat/abused 502. Timing is locked and I need to mess with the 7531 box some more. I've got to pull the rad and install the crank support and intercooler.

The original plan was use the 502 to learn blower basics, but who knows where this will go. People say a 502/F2 can do over 800hp (with cam, et cetera ).

Not much left to do now. Modified the crank support for use with a procharger.

That's a serious piece of hardware! Better than snapping off the snout though.

Apparently you can do considerable damage to the crank and main bearings without one. Especially with cog belts.
