About “Sleeper”

This car lives up to it's name: She looks tame on the outside, but when I put my foot in the worked Mopar small block, she just hunkers down and takes off! The engine was left appearing completely stock (until you take off the air cleaner housing with it's K&N low restriction drop-in replacement filter and see the Holley 750cfm 4-barrel, that is!). If you look closely, you'll see the headers that dump into a 3" true dual exhaust system with Dynomax mufflers for a mellow yet purposeful sound.

About “Dangerous”

Nearly rust free Kansas car. Clutch went out in 2003, I've been working on rebuilding the motor since then. Motor was assembled in 2006/2007, and installed in 2007. Car back on the road for a few months in 2007, new lower springs and shaking out the engine tune. 2008, drove it a couple months and 2nd gear syncro went out. Swapped the trans and now driving it daily while waiting for some parts for the Auto Rotor swap.
2009 - Car is down as I swap in the Auto Rotor 2.0l along with various upgrades including new Air/Liquid intercooler and associated plumbing that needs to go with that and the Moates Quarterhorse for better tuneability.
Autorotor is in and car is running since August. best time so far 12.907 @ 110(approx) up at the Brainerd International Raceway Muscle Car Shootout in 2010.

Cracked the oil pan at the end of 2010. Big things planned for spring and summer 2011.

Sold fall 2012

 

Specs for “Sleeper”

The engine started out as a mild-mannered 318, but it's been worked within an inch of it's life. Bored out .060 over, stroked 3/4", and the compression bumped up to 10.75:1, and featuring a mid-race cam. The heads have been completely gone through as well, being extrude honed and port-matched, with a three angle valve job. She has a 727 Torqueflite automatic with a shift kit and a 2,000 stall converter, all built to handle the power. It's all backed up by a Posi rear, of course.
