Thats my ATI TH400/converter/flexplate/transbrake shipping out today.

In summary, here is the final build that will be completed over the winter and ready for racing 2012 just in time before the world ends.


438ci shortblock (Manley crank, 300M Rods, Manley Pistons, Darton MID sleeves)





Borg Warner 98mm Turbo


DSS 9" IRS with True-Trac and 3.55 gears



Marcella Manifold



CCW Wheels & M&H Tires


Nitrous Pro-Flow




This should complete the entire build now that all the pieces are in place and ready for installation.

Is this the build of yours from over on the Challenger site, that you keep changing your mind about? If so you need to stop upgrading & just build the thing. LOL

This is my build that I have been working on for 2 years. I have changed engine 3 times, trans twice, turbos three times and the car has only ran for about 7 miles.

Damn congratulations Andy, it's about time! That thing is going to be a freaking beast! How come you are sticking with the 6.1 heads?

I have too many customers waiting on 6.4's and they are hard to get. Dont feel right taking a set when paying customers are waiting on them. I have these 6.1 heads sitting here ready to go anyway. Even with the 6.1 heads, I have enough turbo/nitrous to exceed the limits of the block/head gaskets anyway so the extra power from the apache's are not really needed.

Wow, that's a customer oriented response if I have ever seen one. But good to hear you will still be able to destroy the block with the little 6.1 heads :D. I can't wait to see this thing in action.

Got my rods ordered today.

PRO SERIIES 300M I-Beams
Forged from 300 M aircraft quality material
Fully machined to produce the lightest and strongest rod possible
Shot peened after machining to Mil specs and 100% individually magnafluxed
7/16" ARP Custom Age 625+ cap screws

The crank was sent off to be ion-nitrided, the block is getting some additional work done to it right now. Within a month, the engine will be ready to drop in and then we begin tuning.
