7 psi was my sweet spot. Went up for more traction.

Where your two step is, is directly related to where your converter stalls.  Everything I've read over the years, is max effectiveness is roughly 500 rpm under your stall rpm. 

Beyond that, you can tune your reaction times with where the two step is.

Yep. Ran the FED with trans. brake. Foot on the floor, left at 5800. Convertor stalled at 6200. Shifted with rpm module and electric solenoid from 6600-7000 depending on track. Most of the tuning was with tire pressure and wheelie bar height.

I ran a SBC with Dart LIL M block and Dart Iron Eagle 230 heads. The block was fully filled with a hard block filler. We did NOT run coolant. Methanol fuel at 13-20 PSI boost pressure. The SBC does have a hot spot at the cylinder head center. We ran a solid copper gasket . The heads were cut with a receiver groove and the block o-ringed. No problems.The best performance was 4.50 @158 and 7.08 @ 193. I know very little about Pontiac but I can share my info with the Chevy. George

2011-2013 we ran a FED with SBC. Dynos numbers were  600 +. Car and driver were 1460#. Ran low 5s with good track and air in the 1/8th.

Tow Vehicles / Re: Alcohol Engine with No Water

No argument with simplicity. I ran a stock block SBC ,stack injected setup on Methanol. The first year was dry. Freeze plugs were installed . We ran an immersion type heater in the oil pan. After consulting with a much smarter and experienced racer I installed 2 block heaters. One in each side. The engine loved the heat soak. It had more power and showed less fuel in the oil. The engine is now with another racer but if I were to do it again I would go with the water. We ran a fully filled Dart iron block with a blower combination and it always ran stronger after a run or 2. Methanol loves a warm engine. My 2 cents. George

IMO the MSD magneto makes the electronics so easy. We have ran the MSD12LT for 8 years with a 2 step, rpm shifter and rev control. Very dependable and have a rpm playback.

Dog poly door screen material with a bungee cord sewn into a the edge worked well with our stack setup.

Put a 12 volt battery in the car and use a block mounted starter. If its a MSD mag you might run a 16 volt battery. We use a Powernaster starter on 12 volts to start our 377 SBC w/6:71. We began with an external battery. Its a hassle unless you buy into the compact batteries.
