Thread: What are the odds?

  1. #1

    Default What are the odds?

    What's the chances I put one of these on my rolling museum and burn it down? 400 SBC camel hump heads, stainless valves, 11:1 compression that runs great on 110 octane leaded race gas. Looking for input. My pit crew wants me to day one ”my son”. If I could afford to change everything, I wouldn’t have any concerns. I would love to have dependability & reliability, and I’m not hearing this with any of the EFI systems out there. And I have concerns about learning these systems. This is a drag race only car, I can’t drive it around, so it can do its thing.

    I put a Super Sniper 650 on my Dodge Coronet. Had to add a fuel pump in the tank and hook up a return line. Here's how she runs on the chassis dyno: https://youtu.be/xG3-_YJGdZ8

    Cool video. So are you now running unleaded fuel? Or were you already? As I understand it, you can't run leaded race gas with a WBO2 sensor.

    You can with an NTK WBO2 sensor, but you'll have to replace it often.

    You might need to run a high octane unleaded gas. Could get expensive. VP makes a MS 109 and I'm sure other manufactures make high octane unleaded. I've used Hot Rod 102 for a lot of cars, and it works pretty well. $12 a gallon though.

    One of these may help to extend the life of the WBO2 sensor: https://www.innovatemotorsports.com/...cat=250&page=2

    Well, I had no idea high octane unleaded could cost that much. So if you continue to use leaded, just how short of a life is it going to have? I'm lucky to get 25/30 passes a year. I figured all the sitting my car does would be more of an issue.
