2011 Is Here and Work soon to start on my car

So late fall I cracked the oil pan on my car when I hit a massive rock on the roadway on the way to work. Oil all over the place, but didn't loose oil pressure. Unfortunately the motor needs to come out to swap the pan. So it's sitting in the garage waiting to get to it.

I'll be pulling the motor here in February and then checking all the bearings and cylinders for any issues. The new pan comes with a windage tray, so that will be an addition.

Fuel system issues were holding me back last year so that will be resolved this spring with the addition of a new fuel tank customized with baffles and a new high pressure fuel pump, new fuel lines (-10 feed, -6 return) and significant fuel rail modifications and a new fuel pressure regulator.

New custom long tube headers, a new Detroit Tru-Trac rear diff and Drive Shaft Specialties Stage 2 Rear axles. Mid Summer I'll be working on a new intake plenum for the blower (larger volume) and modified inlet plenum that bolts to the intake manifold (room for the blower plenum and slightly larger volume).

Hope to hit 500rwhp before next fall. This will likely be the last year I can go without a cage. Thus forecasting 2012, better brakes, cage, cam, new TKO manual trans. Damn.. I may need a sponsor.

So, I've been working on the 93 SC all spring. It's been over at fabricators shop for the last 3 weeks getting the intercooler tubing cut and welded up, a new outlet top for the autorotor, mounts for the intercooler and heat exchanger. Looks like I'll need to cut the hood to clearance the supercharger top.

I should have it back in a couple days when I'll finish plumbing up the intercooler and wiring up the pump, getting the trunk mounted battery done. Then I'll have to take some time with the new moates quarterhorse and get the engine tuned up. Not sure if this car will make it to the Car Craft Summer Nationals this year. Probably will have to take the 90sc.

For sure it'll be done in time for the Muscle Car Shootout up at Brainerd International Raceway as well as the Fall Club Clash event down at Tri-City Raceway in Earlville, IA.

as some noticed. I was at the Back to 50's event at the MN State Fairgrounds a little while back. took a few pictures. There were over 11,000 vehicles registered for the event. Lots of cars.
