Elanor rebuild for a friend

Here is elanor who belongs to my buddy Mike Garcia. She has a QMM built 297 ci stroker,HP PT-74 turbo kit, QMM ported heads, MMR custom turbo cams, GT500 pumps and a McLoed twin disc work harse clutch. She was up and running and never got to reach her full potential before some tuning issues caused detonation and blew the spark plugs apart and ate the rings and turbine wheel of the turbo up. So she is getting refreshed with a couple upgrades. Hopefully it will be out soon so i can bring 1 of my cars back home from M & G! lol

Damn! I remember when Mike got that car. I hope it gets sorted out soon.
It will be up and running again soon. We upgraded the turbo which should be back next week and we need to order some pistons.

Come to find out, the turbo was only a pt-74 and since we had to send it to precision to get rebuilt, we upgradted it to the pt-76 gtsh. we need to bore it .020 over and im gonna work the heads a little more and see what i can do with the intake. It made 803rwhp on 18psi of boost on pump gas and it was out of fuel pump, so it keeped blowing the plug apart. We are making a couple other little changes, but it should make good power this time around. I just have to get him to stay interested in it, he bought a 06 vette that he wants to do a bunch of stuff to it now. im gonna have to wear extra thick gloves so i dont catch any chevy germs! LMAO :)

Yup, i am the new proud owner of Eleanor. Yup we are strokin out the vette. He got rid of the nitrous cause he said the car ran weird with it, so he sold it. I never drove it with the spray, but that thing got with the program on the stock motor with bolt ons, so im excited to see what it does with the new motor.
