Post em up
Ran a 5.3 at 139 on its first pass on only a 408 and only 15lbs.
Running a 106mm turbo
Has been 7.95 got ALOT left in it to
The Red Demon
Went to a domestic meet sat in the red demon and ran another stroker SS. It was a 414.
We were really close, if anything Id give us the advantage.
Here is the stroker we raced, running against a 625whp Cobra who "had never been beat"
I will have vids for yall soon. We are gonna meet the SS for another race during the day and im bringing a camera
wait wait it ran a 5.3 at 139?? that doesnt add up for some reason. Nice car though
1/8th mile sorry then it went to the 1/4 and ran a 7.9
sounds hot...im gona get the pix of that vette and stick em in here...hopefully more people post
Ive got tons, Ill add a few
Is it just me or has the front of that car been put together very poorly?
Its a combination of the panels and the light.
The front ends always look like that, in person its not a big deal but in pics in certain light your like WTF.
Its like 10x worse on a formula
I know what the front end is supposed to look like, and that's not really
It doesn't even match up right to the right of the center crease in the hood.
thats american build qulity lol exactly what i meant by when i said the s2000 has a nicer feel..just seems like it was put together better..sick car nonetheless
Its justone car and its old you cant judge build quality on just a 11 year
I have moe pics of the same car
see depending on angle you can see what appears to be a dent but isnt is from the shapes of the bumper behind the turn signal and the front fender
Guys, can we all do something to reduce the length of time it takes to load
a page by maybe not having such big pictures displayed? I would appreciate
your cooperation in linking all excessively large pics where possible. Edit
is your friend! :thumbs:
Please note that if it occurs in future I'll edit/delete as I see fit. Thanks!
Officer, may I ask you a question? Are you still using dial-up internet service?? Loads fine for me, I am on broadband, and besides these cars are so sexy its worth the wait :thumbs:
Nope. Broadband all the way here...Not the most powerful broadband (powerful in terms of speed, lol)...4-meg I think? I have a standard sized screen too (15-inch ish), and most of the pics are also too wide for it meaning I have to scroll left to right alot to see them. We've been here before I believe. The way I see it is you shouldn't assume that somebody has a 24-meg internet connection and a 20-inch widescreen monitor.
lol I know I do...a diff forum im on the pictures automatically get scaled down to fit your screen...new feature for CF perhaps?
You know you do what? Yes, it's like that on another forum I'm on, too..It's a great feature, but one that's unlikely to make it to CF for obvious reasons...There are loads of updates out there that CF could do with! :ohcrap:
The fierbird at the top of the page is amazing
need i say yet again that the GTO isn't american?
and Cliffy.... I don't think 15" is a "standard size" monitor any more :laughing:
It is for a laptop though lol. I don't think screen size matters as much as much as resolution anyways.
i dont know about you but i consider a GM based company with a chevy ls2 under the hood to be at least slightly American
engine yes... car no.
That better lol
Anyone wana school me on GM motors??
Whats a 350 and what does it mean
What is an LT
What is an LS
Whats the difference between the LS and LT motors
you're kidding right?
After all the knowledge you claim to have... you ask that.
type "350 cubic inches in litres" into google.
a 350 is the cubic inches of the motor
lt and ls are just model names the new ls motor is just a newer better more fuel efficient engine that replaced the lt
lt- c4 vette
ls1 5.7- comaro ss, c5 vette and 04 gto 350hp
ls2 6.0-c6 vette, 06 cts-v,05-06 gto, new g8 and new comaro concept 400hp
ls6 5.7-c5 z06, 04-05 cts-v 405hp
ls7 7.0-c6 z06, new 08-09 cts-v 505hp
not sure what the litres on the lt's are
I mean small block big block etc...i duno all that ish
no.... you didn't know what 350 meant
no i know the 350 is a 350 cubic inch motor...i just dont know if its a big or small block..dont put words in my mouth, instead put a dick in yours and stfu:banghead:
Small block. Just check on Wikipedia...Small block was the smaller GM motors, big block was the larger series (although some overlap).
right..so whats the benefit of using one instead of the other
Do you see anything about small block big block there?
I didn't put anything in your mouth
So you didn't know what A 350 was, but you know what THE 350 is ?.... obviously it's my mistake.... i should have realised that when you were asking what a 350 is, you knew exactly what the 350 was.
If indeed you .. then ask that.
I know that the number reffers to the cubic inches of the motor..
there was also something else i was watching barrett jackson auction and they were saying something about interpreting the different numbers on cars
like the mustang 427 or something they said that each number corresponded to something, but kill me, I dont remember exactly what they said.
so now you think 350 means 2 things?
Very basic, but one is smaller and more compact, the other offers more power.
no...i forget what it was they were talking about but it had something to do with the number being decoded into some shit...ugh just forget it il ask the old heads at the next classic car meet i go to
350 means displacement. If they can make it into something else.... good
But you didn't ask any of that until you were called out for an average question.
Don't 350's have around 350 horsepower..?
They have anywhere between 145–370 hp...Depending on how they're tuned (what car they go into)
A cylinder is a round hole through the block, bored to receive a piston.
All automobile engines, whether water-cooled or air-cooled, four cycle or
two cycle, have more than one cylinder. These multiple cylinders are
arranged in-line, opposed, or in a V. Engines for other purposes, such as
aviation, are arranged in other assorted forms.
The diameter of the cylinder is called the "bore" while its height is called its "stroke." The "displacement" of an engine is actually a reflection of the total amount of volume of the engine's cylinders, and nothing to do with the actual size of the engine itself (although the two are highly correlated). The displacement is simply the bore multiplied by the stroke of a single cylinder, multiplied by the total number of cylinders in the engine. Muscle car engine displacements were usually measured in cubic inches, while modern vehicle's are expressed in terms of liters. Roughly 61 cubic inches equals a liter of displacement. Therefore, an engine with 350 cubic inches of displacement would be the equivalent of 5.7 liters.
There are different types of 350's long block, short block. like metioned above is just a different type of 350.. some are fuel injected some are carburated
also there are many different samall blocks.. 305, 327, 350, 383, 400. are just to name a few common chevy small blocks.
as far as my addition to the domestic cars
not mine but one day
not true in all aspects. the 327 sbc could rev to the moon but the 350 cant handle much unless the bottom end is modded. same goes for big blocks. most racers use the 350 only because they are cheapest to build, but the power potential from a big block is far greater than a small block in most situations.
tell me more about this 383. what cars did it come in?
heres my pic
Well, no. But let's not allow the facts to get in the way of your cut and pasted and guessed and pulled out your ass dissertation. Here are just a few examples of one cylinder cars.
Not always, but once again we don't want to let facts get in the way of your opinion. Can you say radial engined cars?
Or W-engined cars.
Why yes it is.
Why no it's not. The stroke has nothing to do with the height of the cylinder, the stroke is, simply put, the travel of the piston.
No, it has nothing to do with the volume of the cylinders and everything to do with the swept volume of the cylinders.
You finally got something right, now all you need to do is comprehend the definition of stroke.
All cars built in the US had their displacement measured and advertised in cubic inches until the early '80s when the US government made it law that the metric system would become the official form of measurement for this country. It didn't matter if it was a Model T or a Hemi Cuda, inches is how we measured things.
Look at that... Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
Huh? Say what? Long block and short blocks are different types of engines? Before you start passing your special brand of bullsh*t off as information, you'd better pull your head out and have at least a basic grasp of what you're talking about. That one sentence right there proves you don't have a clue. Look it up. Search it on this forum. It's been covered plenty of times.
Define common Twinkie. There aren't a lot (relatively) of 327's or 400's still around. A 383 is a custom built engine, and custom does not equal common. Do us a favor and go crawl back into your hole.
He didn't write that. Click here (http://groups.msn.com/MuscleCarTales/yourwebpage2.msnw) and then scroll down to the part where it says "Cylinder". Look familiar? lol
Yes it does, hence the words;
I must have missed that lol.
want a tissue
why are you bitchin at me if its cut and paste.. he could have done what i did and searched for it on google. Sorry i misinformed him of information i was misinformed on. And i didnt say a 327 and 400 motor were still around did I. im pretty sure i just said they're small blocks. but if it gives you somethin else to cry about thats fine..
I mean you obviously have somethin to prove on here by bitching about every comment posted. I dont mind learnin somethin stop crying about everything.
I reckon your thinking of the Oldsmobile 442. The 442 is not the size of the motor, it stands for 4-barrel carb, 4-speed tranny, and 2 (dual) exhaust IIRC.
One of the few things worse than ignorance is spreading ignorance.
understandable.. ill do more research before i post anything.. im tryin to learn by reading. its hard to pick out whats bs
from wikipedia FWIW...
Common Misconceptions about the 442
Many people believe that the designation "442" actually referred to the displacement of the engine in cubic inches (i.e. 442 cu.in.). However, it had various meanings over the years.
Definition of 4-4-2 from the Oldsmobile Factory Literature: 1964 (Original meaning)
4: Four Barrel Carburetion
4: Four On the Floor
2: Dual Exhausts
1965 (First year of automatic transmission option on 442)
4: 400 Cubic Inch Displacement
4: Four Barrel Carburetion
2: Dual Exhausts
1985 to 1987 (Last of RWD 442s)
4: Four speed automatic
4: Four barrel carburetor
2: Dual exhaust
1990 and 1991 (FWD 442)
4: Four cylinders
4: Four valves
2: Two camshafts
erm...back to topic maybe??
Or you cite your sources instead of using it as if it was yours.
