You really shouldnt judge a book by its cover. This 68s stock appearance may scream showpiece, but theres definitely no mistaking the brutish 556ci rumble through the 2-1/4-inch Lemons Headers, 4-inch tubing, and Flowmaster mufflers. This 68s stock appearance may scream showpiece, but theres d The Kings dream is to own and build a wild aluminum-block powerplant such as this. [Yeah, but minell be a Ford 302!ed.] Fortunately for Todd, Matt kept his drool off the valve covers. Starting with a Keith Black aluminum block, the mega-cubed motor is stuffed with JE Pistons, a custom-ground Crane Cams solid-roller camshaft, and Lunati rods swinging from a Lunati 4.375-inchstroke crankshaft. Heavy breathing comes by way of a 1250 Dominator on top of an aluminum Dart manifold and a set of Dart 360 aluminum heads with a Jesel 1.70/1.75:1 shaft-rocker system and titanium 2.30/1.88 intake/exhaust valves.

Tripping the quarter-mile lights with a 9.48 at 147 mph is serious business in a 3,300-pou The thought of a 9-second anything cruising public streets in the 60s was unthinkable. Top Fuelers barely ran that fast back then, and no door-slammers came close. But thanks to the pace of technology, wheel-standing 9-second street machines are very real today. Meet Todd Tyson out of Blaine, Minnesota, who has the fastest stock-appearing first-gen Camaro weve seen in a very long timemaybe ever.
