Stodolka, Michael
1966 Coronet


Hughes Engines, inc. Just a note about my car.
I have your 2832BL cam, valve springs, and rocker hold downs in my 66 Coronet.
Best run so far, 13.62 @ 101.5mph with street tires. I know it will be faster with more experience.
I really like the way it runs with the cam.

9.38 comp, forged speed pros
'902 heads self ported, new 2.08 1.74 valves
CH4B Edel. dual quad w/ 600 Edel. carbs

2.25 exhaust (same pipes the 318 had) w/flowmasters

 Installed headers, and some 11.50 x 28 MT Et streets. Best so far on a hot humid day here in MN, 13.48 at 102.7. Still running 3.23's. Hopefully lower gears next time and cooler weather.

Thanks again.
