Well it didn't seem fitting to post 2013 changes to the car under 2006 changes,so I'll post the changes here for the 2013 season.

The planned changes are a AA motor. a 572 ci BB Dart block and heads.

Twin turbos and ice/air inter coolers.
We are planning to use a blow through carb.

Move the fuel, water, ice water tanks around.

Stretch the front 24 inches.

A rendering of what it might look like.

More to come.

Hooley, I can't wait to see this thing! I'm going to have to pop into John K's, when he gets the front end stuff to modify!

Gonna be killer looking! Good cheers luck!

Thanks Buddy,
                       I don't know how you get every thing done that you have going on.

 It is fun watching your cutting edge newstalga flat motor. Not to mention that BAD-Acura sound that it makes.

We haven't been writing very much lately but we have been busy.  The 2 ft. frame streech is done and a mock up motor is in.  The turbos , waste gates and inter coolers came in.  Sum and Ruth came by last week-end for a working week-end. There were a lot of hours with few brakes.  We got a lot of planning done and mounted the coolers and turbos. Now I just have to fill in the blanks. The headers I built earler won't work so I'll build some more that will.

The engine block and heads are ready to start building. I want to get a little futher on the mock up before I put the engine together.

I will try to post some pictures.

  Hooley, looking good and I can't wait to see it run.
  By the way, thanks for the "Lucky Horseshoe" you sent me before the W.F.'s.  I think I mounted it wrong..............  which leads to a pretty funny story about it and my spin................                      See you soon, Bob

Yea, Blame it on the Lucky Horse Shoe.   It may be mounted in the wrong place. You might have to move it a round to different places.

Did you get more than one run in ?

  Hooley, here is the story.  While we were getting the car ready for tech, I remembered the horseshoe and duct taped it to the outside windshield dead center of the steering wheel but above my line of sight and figured I would take it off before I ran.
  I not only teched it in, but made two or three turn outs (near the two) trying to find the tune up, and then spun the car on the next pass.
  Following the spin, I took it back to tech and then to my pit to repair the damage so I could run Saturday morning.
  It was after my return to the pits on Friday that I noticed the Dodge horseshoe was still ductaped on the outer windshield.
  Granted, it wouldn't have been funny if it had flown off and someone later ran over it but all I can say is that's why I buy only the Best Duct Tape: Nashua 357!
  My only full pass was Saturday morning where I broke the motor and lost the clutch at the Four (229 mph) and managed to take out the Five mile clocks.
  Another Dodge chapter in my book.
  I may not make it to Speedweek this year, as I may have broken the Dart Big M Block, and if I did, thats about a ten grand hit for the short block. ....................   Bob

BOB,     
        The picture I have in my head of the Horse shoe taped to the out side of the windshield has me rolling in the floor .
I am at a loss of words.  Do you think the horse shoe doesn't work all the time?  And maybe should be left on the tool box or something.

[Dodge is a 4 letter word?]

Sparky, I was just looking at rods for the 572 motor.

Bill, The picture is just a rendering right now but should be close to what it will look like when done.

Hooley, I like that rendering! I can't wait to see you run! Is Sam gonna be with you?

Too bad we can't get John K to reschedule his trip, so that he could be there!
