Dick, Do you know Dave?

He was a member of the old Fordnatics list (I also have old mustangs around), I remember his posting's from back in the mid 90's when they did a lot of that stuff.

Damn, this guy has insane fabrication ingenuity and skill.

My fav so far is the build-up of the 302 for his RX-7, halfway through it he heavily modifies a new-in-box 1972 Hilborn fuel injection kit (remember early '70's drag cars with 8 staggered foot-long intake runners jutting out of the hood?) to make it sort-of streetable.

Thanks for the link, Dick!

Dave Williams

Never met him Marcus, but he's helped me many times over the net. His site has been down for the past year or so. Read his posting on oil and on hi-volumn oil pumps. The best I've ever read in my 50 years of racing. This guy knows his [email protected]#t and then some. Most of us only dream of improvements. This guy whips out his tools and builds them. Most sit on the fence between crazy and genius. This guy is a true genius. DICK ( you and I have some good threads going over at IT)

Dave is definitely a genius. The Suprang (I'm not sure if that build is still on his website) has gotten some good ink in the GRM $2004 and $2005 challenges for the owner Sean Korb.

Yep, we do! now to get a definitive word inthe dual leading ignition. At this point, I'm with the crowd that believes its illegal. if it doesn't really provide a gain on the dyno, I'll yank it and just use the coils with a stock ignition stup.
