Welcome to QSL, i am sure that you will get the info that you are looking for in your engine. As for the front engine dragster chassis with quick change, John Foster at www.quartermortar.com is your POC. Al

He did not make very many of those intakes. They were hard to tune since they provided so much fuel and air. A lot of them only used 4 of the carbs to operate properly. I have only seen a couple go up for sale over the past 10 years. Your best bet would be to make an intake custom. John foster did this for me on one project and did a very nice job.

Good Morning All


Yes John at quartermorter is my guy on this project. I had him update and go threw my Pace setter Funny car that was on there original flyer they sent out. I don't have an extra 10k floating around for the 609 stinger plus its a lot bigger then the early 427 engines are and don't look right per John.Plus I'm trying to build a replica of my old Don Long I had in my younger day's


Thank's for your help

Robert
