Just curious about this. These cars are capable of making great horsepower with simple mods. It seems like one of these done right would just be killer in the Super Stock classes.

Try this link;

Marty ran P/SA, Q/SA and R/SA with his TC. He has since switched to a Fox Mustang, with the turbo motor. Several good reads!

I've seen that car. That is actually what made me start thinking about what a killer combo it would seem to be for a Super Stock application.

Do you have a current NHRA rule book (2014)? The rules for SS/ used (the past) to be on the "not friendly side" for turbo cars. In today's arena, that may be diffferent.

Nothing is really mentioned about turbo cars.

Left side of page click on Ford, go to 1988 and begin.

Also, you might want to consider NMRA for some real FORD racing. http://www.nmradigital.com/true-street/ read
