edge gasserking, GalaxieRoller, 90lx - All one in the same.

Notice how he just joined yesterday and today revives the threads that GalaxieRoller and 90lx started and were being ignored by members who have pegged him as a troll.

A troll can't help himself. He is a creature of habit. He can't post without making at least one inciting statement (example "Stinking Chevy People"). He has a difficult time posting without using capital letters. His questions make no sense and are without merit. His answers are so vague, they are pointless and useless. He will find it hard to respond to this post without telling me off.

Mods - You need to dump the threads started by GalaxieRoller and 90lx.

Stinking chevy people!
One of my favorite vehicles of all time was a 69 SWB with a 390. 5-star rims (8" front, 10" rear) c-6 with a 10" 3500 TCI converter and stage three shift kit turning 9" 3.25 posi diff.

The engine was near stock, cast iron 4bbl, .500" lift "RV" cam, Holley 4010 and headers sparked by a good ignition and a 125 shot. I smoked this claimed 12 second 377 SBC with brodix heads in a 72 SWB.

The 390FE can run with the right setup {and idle at the same time!!}.

But the OP asked for a quote "streetable" 9 second ride. I just so happened to know there was one, VERY streetable on eBay right now so I thought I'd let him see what it takes.

Galaxie, you just need to forget using a Ford and buy the Elco, pull the engine and drop in your galaxie(when's the last time you say a streetable 9 second Ford BB? me, never ). You'd be set with the GM.... to boogity, boogity boogity right on down the road.
390, 17.0 compression, custom cam grind, 700hp, 650ft/lb torque, drop comp. to 8.00, boost the crap out of it, (15psi) different cam, 1400 easily, so long as it's got a good intercooler. Stinking chevy people!

2. 990 RWHP to move a 5000# car to the same numbers.

At an assumed 20% drivetrain loss, that is anywhere between 1,000 - 1,240 flywheel HP to run your Galaxie in the 9s, that is high 9's. That's a whole bunch of motor. Not sure how streetable that can be made.

And don't forget. Going that fast requires a bunch of safety mods that cost big dollars too. Not to mention the upgraded driveline (trans, driveshaft and rear).

GalaxieRoller- I think the definition of 'sreetable' needs to be clear. Getting a car to run that kind of power and be able to "run" on the street is certainly doable, however, getting a car like that to be able to drive to work, sit in traffic, go to the movies, etc. is not likely. If you're young and getting into cars, that's cool, but if you do nothing else, listen to the advise of those that have been there and done that. They'll save you time, money, mistakes, and possibly injuries.

I vote lock and dump this thread. It serves no technical purpose to leave it in the engine forum. Dump all his pointless threads and eventually he will go away.

Correct me if I am wrong, but as a new member, he cannot view the dump anyway, right?

Bumpstick We may not all agree on some things but for the most part we all get along but this is a little overboard...?


GalaxieRoller... Take the hint(s) and do the right thing and sit back and listen you tend to learn more...? Also when you speak try to make it worth listening to...? You`ll get more flys with honey than with vinigar...
