Posted (edited) · Report post

this is my first attempt at trying to build a Outlaw 10.5/Outlaw Drag Radial type car. its to be based on a new ZR1 vette, and im not certain exactly all what i want to do as far as engine and detail etc. i was on the fence about doing this because well diving into a project like this can be a bit much. So enough chatter here are a few pics of what i started this weekend.

right out of the box

yeah the impala is why im doing this. i took it out and couldnt figure out what to do next. a lot needs to be done on it but i am at a stand still on it. So a new project has begun. This is now my 3rd cage im doing, and im learning a little more each time i make new pieces.

Right now I'm thinking a 737 BBC with twin 88s. Not certain though but I have a new Ross Gibson engine that would fit the bill. Time will tell I guess.

This is great project, I'll be watching it for sure. I've been wanting to build Corvette Drag Car too-and I mean this kind of Corvette. Great job on the cage so far, keep it coming.

just made the turbos today, its going to have twin 91mm's and most likely will feed the 737 BBC which will be injected. So i need to design a new intake manifold and get that made next.

they arent totally accurate (too many blades, space between compressor and exhaust housing, exhaust housing size) but for me they are good enough and im not redesigning them because they took a while to get them where they are. either way they should look sweet once all done up.

so i started putting the motor together tonight. had an extra intake layin around so i put it on just to see, and low n behold it fit under the stock hood. granted the intake is for a standard deck BBC, but was still cool to see it under there. im going to have to lengthen it front to back, add some length to the runners so i can add a second set of injectors, and make the runners bigger. so it most likely wont fit under the hood, but itll be close and wont need a lot of modifying which was the hope.

not much progress at all here. i designed the intake manifold ths weekend and made it today. its a bit larger than the standard deck intake i made a while back. Its a bit longer, has larger runners and port spread, 2 ses of injectors/rails, and no built in valley tray.
