I've seen a few fast 3v's at Byron. There is a guy with a black I believe vert. I know it's got a Kenne Bell on it. It moves quite well. Not sure if he is on here.

I think a lot of guys bought it because they had the retro look but never did anything to them. But I dunno

What I love is how "dog shit" slow people talk about them being, but nobody ever wants to spot them out accordingly as being "dog shit" slow.

I could not tell you what a stock 3v makes power wise. I can't say they are fast or slow. I know they were faster than the 2v. Which should have been aborted.

Not sure why people think they are "slow".

There are 3V's making 1000+whp. Making S197's hook is no different in a 3v vs 5.0.

I believe the worlds fastest S197 is still a 3v. Unless that has changed recently.

The reason people hate is because 5.0s go mid 11s with bolt-ons. 3vs dont touch that with FI.

The 3V is the best Fucked Over Rebuilt Dodge car Chrysler ever built period. To get that high HP you have to do so much to the motor and loose so much street ability. Springs, Phasers, Lockouts, Billet everything like the oil pump. and don't even think your going to put that through a 5R55S. Not gonna happen
