10.79 ET at 4600# with a little RAT.......

As Mark Jones says, do the work get the results. Frank's goal was to get the 4600# beast solid in the 10's. Well congrats to Frank, his dad, and his 9 year old son for a year of hard work. That 3 color primer beast of an Impala is that has been seen in NY and NJ is a Working Girl!!!!!!!

Note when dyno'd she made 648HP. Based on ET and MPH she is somewhere between 719 and 730HP!!!

Why is it we never have time or money to do it the right way in the beginning but we always have time and money to do it over again?

10.79, 124.17 mph, Frank said the car scaled at 4640#. Wallace shows that to be between 730 and 735hp.
1.7 hp/ci. Not bad for an iron headed, single four 427.
