Obviously, that kind of power on the stock motor was playing with fire. Ended up spinning a rod bearing last trip to the track. So, further down the rabbit hole we go.

First up, an IAG Built Closed Deck Shortblock.

Just about done. Only a few things left to finish up. Install the hellcat 525 fuel pump and re-install the interior around the shifter.

From the day I got her back. Was thinking, this thing is gonna be nasty. Makes all kinda spooly noises even outside of boost. Still breaking it in, but only at 1 psi and thing had me grinning.

This is dope! I'd use the bumper space to add some fresh air ducting, but its definitely a sleeper w/out as mentioned above.

What exactly do you mean? Air ducting for? Curious.

Installed some oem fender flares. Not too wild, just subtle enough.

I like the matte grey. Thinking of doing same maybe.
Time for some suspension to handle that monster.

Turbo inlet came to mind. But please don't let my thoughts sidetrack the beauty of it all.

Ahh, gotcha. Not entirely worried about it as it's speed density tuned and the IAT sensor is measuring the air temp just prior to the throttle body. Also;
1. The air pre turbo gets cooled by the intercooler.
2. I got the cold side pipe heat reflective wrapped.
3. My intake manifold has thermal dispersant coating.

Thanks, actually gonna be changing up the color soon. Should be done within the next couple weeks.
I do need to eventually get the suspension done. I'll probably focus on getting that done right before spring before the track opens back up.

Amazing build. Love those body style fonzies. One tip, you have to get the coolant flowing out of the back of those heads. Personally, I'd install a fitting on the back of both and tee them together and back into the heater core return to water pump. Will run safer on 3 and 4.
