Anyone recall the Indy style Billy ran  at the Nats that was just a tad over 200 ci?  Wound that sucker up and I bet it sounded really good...as far as a turbo engine can sound anyway

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

I was there when he ran it a few times before he sold it. It was 209 ci. He had a Indy crank in the 109 block.  In TSM trim it was running 9.4's back in 2006-7   He was shifting over 8 grand, Not sure but I think he has a 5500 stall Ati converter. Ill post the video if I can find it

And wasn't there a lot of upset racers when he kicked their butts, too?

Yep.. He burned them up at the line staging. They overheated and that little motor and 5000+ converter just purred
