First Passes on Nova with MJ467

I just wanted to share my first passes in my Nova with the new Vortec Pro 467
(https://www.chevelles.com/forums/13-...ead-build.html)

Decided it was time to get this thing on the track, ran yesterday in Fontana.

Car is set up with a Th400/ATI 8" converter and 9in with 3.89s, calvert suspension, Santhuff front springs, 275 ET Street R's(not the most efficient drive train 4" steel driveshaft, 35 spline axles, th400), all steel except for hood, not sure how much the car weighs (full interior with aluminum Kirkey seats and roll bar).

1st pas in 15 years:
DA - 2303
60' - 1.563
330 - 4.507
1/8 - 6.956
MPH - 99.97
1000 - 9.091
1/4 - 10.984
MPH - 111.20
Launched kinda soft off idle but still managed to pulled both front wheels off the ground. Not sure what happened to the MPH on the pass, i think i lifted early. Couldn't believe my junk ran 10's on the first pass.

2nd Pass:
DA - 2571
60' - 1.481
330 - 4.404
1/8 - 6.847
MPH - 100.34
1000 - 8.971
1/4 - 10.781
MPH - 124.09
Best pass of the day.

3rd Pass:
DA - 2660
60' - 1.506
330 - 4.537
1/8 - 7.025
MPH - 99.01
1000 - 9.170
1/4 - 10.990
MPH - 123.52
I thought i was moving in the right direction after the 2nd pass, I wanted to make at least a couple passes before making changes to the car. I might of hot lapped this run a bit, my coolant temps in the staging lanes were creeping up, at the line my temp was at about 195deg. all other passes i was under 180deg.

4th Pass (Final Pass):
DA - 3030
60' - 1.484
330 - 4.420
1/8 - 6.863
MPH - 100.37
1000 - 8.987
1/4 - 10.790
MPH - 124.67
Decided to make some changes on this pass. Checked timing and it was at 37deg (thought I had it at 36deg) ended up locking it at 35deg. Ran 19psi on the tires instead of 18psi, and removed the air filter. With a better DA, this possibly could have been my best pass.

I could have ran a couple of more times but it was getting hot and the family was burnt out. I was not expecting to run in the tens on my first passes (even though Mark said I would), my goal is to run 10.50s (on this track) in street driven car. I would like to get my 60ft down in the 1.35-1.40 range if possible but it should be fun from here on out.

Let me know what you guys think.

Will post better vids and timeslips after work:

Yo RENZO! Holy !!! Nice man!!! Math being what it is, you're so close, that last - .20 to ,30 sec is going to take some really detailed tweaks n tuning to the 60' but.... you gonna get it! It appears to launch nicely!

PS Hey you racing John Force in that lineup ? holy SMOKES man..! and then you SMOKED 'em off the line! too funny!

I will let it rest a bit longer next time, SoCal Temps are only going to climb from here on.

Rear tire is MT ET Street R (radial) 275/60R15, press. at 18-19psi.

Fuel system is a bit overkill: two -8 feed lines from fuel tank to Magnafuel 500 pump/pre-filter, -8 bypass to fuel tank, -10 supply line to magnafuel regulator and two -8 fuel lines each feeding bowls on carburetor. Held press at 6.5psi the whole time.

Re: First Passes on Nova with MJ467

Nice job!
Is that a treemaster? I loved mine. All around great converter.
My best was a 1.45 leaving off idle. Calverts set a a nickle with split mono's, 17 psi my et pro's 275/60/15's and calvert single rears set on the 7th click from full hard.
Almost the exact same suspension.

Thank you sir. It is a treemaster spec'd out by Mark, it is definitely working out well. I was launching at 1500rpm, gonna try off idle next outing. I have zero gap/preload on my bars and rears set at 8 from full hard.

Re: First Passes on Nova with MJ467

That should "could" flash a lil higher from idle.

That converter now 10yrs old and th350 is in my son's G body malibu.
He was getting 1.50 60's with 3.42's in 96 degree heat!
Charlie P at ATI built it for me.
Great guy.
Def let it cool down between runs.
There was so many street tire cars when I went, my car cooled down and was in the 160's.

Re: First Passes on Nova with MJ467

Nice runs, you sure gave those Mopar guys something to think about with your car looking like a street car. Yup Mark is the man when it comes to BBC. Boy I sure miss running in the 10's with my old 406, hope the new BB's I have will run that strong. You have a nice setup there.

Re: First Passes on Nova with MJ467

Several people came over, they thought I was on the bottle. Very few street cars out there running N/A.
