    Drag Racing Introductions - Your First Street/Strip Car

    How To Build for Fun and Profit. OK, Forget the Profit Part
    Cruise-ins and car shows are just glorified parking lots. If you're ready for action and adventure, you might be thinking about trying a little drag racing. There are tracks everywhere, and drag opportunities are offered at many events, such as some Goodguys shows, nostalgia reunions, Holley's LS Fest, True Street competitions within the NMCA and NMRA sanctioning bodies, and even our own Power Tour┬«. Every track has bracket races, and virtually any car can race. You don't need to be competitive--you can just run at test-and-tune nights to get your personal best times for nothing but fun. Besides, muscle car bragging rights are anchored in quarter-mile times. Even if you spend most of your time at cruises and shows, you'll hold your head higher when you can put an actual number to your car's performance during bench sessions. If you're considering your first street-and-strip project, this issue of HRM is packed with stuff to think about, from the car features about real guys on real budgets to the tribulations of the participants of our annual Drag Week├

    I just purchased a used FAST 90mm intake today. I will port out the inlet to 92mm and then port the runners. I'm also going to paint it. Not sure if

    Right on. I'm hoping to push somewhere around there when I'm "done" with mine. I'm also thinking about doing a FAST 92mm.
