Worlds fastest 10.5 small block car …. First to the teens 4.18 @ 183
“Fastest LS was my goal, but now we are the fastest small-block on a 10.5,” said Kempf.
In the engine bay of his Firehawk was his old-faithful Billy Briggs-built 454 cubic-inch LS-based engine designed around a Dart billet block and wearing Mast Motorsports canted-valve heads and fronted by a single 118mm Precision turbo, but he was putting to work a new ten-inch ProTorque converter and had swapped rear-end gearing from 3.70 to 4.10. His car weighed in at a super-light 2665 pounds and Keith Engling from Skinny Kid Race Cars was on-hand to tweak the chassis and give it what it wanted for the conditions.
