Terry, You'll never get a straight answer out of these guys so you might as well not try. The Stardust ranch is a modern facility that moves a lot of beef. The cowboys and cowgirls there use a new technique of "hooking" the stock instead of the old method of Heading and heeling. You know, where one guy ropes the head and another lasso's the feet, they stretch out the cow and work it over. Now they do it with a Hooker. The boss sends out a "hooker", and she sidles out into the crowd of...

Hi Brian, It looks like you live near/in Vegas. Don't know of a shop there. But if you want to take a trip to San Jose, Call Joe at Mustang Ranch. While the car is there they can put it on the Dyno and have Byron work his magic. You will be most pleased. 408-247-9005 X12.

ron & boy[ce], maybe you're watching somebody else's tape. that car has NEVER run more than 7200 rpm, unless i've missed a shift on occasion . and i'm not sure which tape you're talking about, but on the 192 mph run and on the 196 mph run, the car never broke 7000 rpm. only in this last race did it wind up to 7200, and i don't think you guys have seen that tape yet. i know golder's load ran 8 or 9 grand rpm's, but mine can't. steve o, don't worry yourself too hard about my tires. they'll...

Dogman, Call Joe at Mustang Ranch,www.mustangranch.biz, they built mine and Tracys motor. Both make killer power for $$$ invested and you can trust them. My wimpy little 4.6 is pumping out 600RWHP on a mild tune. In my two stellar runs down 318 this year and my run at the Pony (up and back)the motor ran great. Good luck!

Thank you for the quick replies. It is very much appreciated. It is for an 86 Suburban four wheel drive. I use it to get to the ranch and for towing. The 86 engine is a one year only (leaking head gasket and 183k miles), and was hard to find. Expensive to rebuild. So purchased an 89 engine, 190 psi, 50 psi oil. But the bolt pattern for the intake is slightly differnt. Heard mixed opinions about putting an after market or Police Caprice intake four barrel on the 89 engine. Havent done this...

Hey Rory! I hope you have a GREAT run this year. Like the old saying goes "never assume anything, or you run the chance of making a ASS of U & ME".

New Addition to Friday Night

Bunny Hill ·
Over the years many of our participants have concocted some strange, but exciting, innovative ways to enjoy themselves and interact with each other. These events (for lack of a more descriptive word) are outside the sanctioned events sponsored by the SSCC Board. With that said, we always want to make sure all our participants know what is going on in Ely for their enjoyment. This September Ray Alexander is hosting a BBQ on Friday evening in the new patio area adjacent to the Stardust Ranch.
