4700#'s of Impala getting in the 10's with a 427..

All iron 427 in a 4700# car in the 10's!!!!!

Our customer Frank T reported over the weekend that his 2 year goal of getting "Big Sexy" in the 10's was realized! Franks 1969 2 door Caprice Classic powered by a 427 +.030" with Foxy Ported Iron heads, 12.5 to 1 compression, and Strauby Hyd Roller with 2 intake lobe profiles dipped into the 10's.

Footbraking to 4200, shifting at 7000 rpm and running through the traps at 74-7500 rpm. Next time you here somebody say a hyd roller won't go over 7000 rpm, you can tell them you beg to differ!!!!

Congrats Frank, New Yorker, on a 10.95 at 120.49!!!

The owner, Frank T is 230# so that puts "Big Sexy" at a lane weight of 4690# in race trim.

She is a 3 lobe Hyd roller camshaft.

Looks like it launches well by the 60' time, I'll bet it's cool to see/hear that big beast make the haul!

Welcome to the site Chris. I have been ready about your squishy roller success over on the Chevelle site for a while. I need to call you for a SBC recommendation.

Yeah he advertises on the Team Nova site as well. I haven't been on Team Camaro in years but I would imagine he is trolling for customers there as well.

Trolling or making smart business decisions?
He has done cams for a ton of guys who actively participate in online communities, with the means to provide feedback in a very visible way. Because of this, he is held to a high level of accountability.

I haven't heard a bad thing about the guy, and the pages of documented builds he is involved with as well as cam suggestions he offers are right there for us all to see.

Again, I don't consider it trolling. It's good business.

Getting a big '69 Caprice in the 10's with factory cubes and iron heads is pretty dang impressive. With those rpm's through the traps, that tank has something like 4.56 gears in it too. Looks like the owner has his suspension set up well as well.

If the owner isn't one of those racers who keeps his cam specs secret better than the CIA, I would like to see them.
