Twin Engined Drag Car History
Dennis Friend Joel F. Naprstek
Every year we receive requests for info
for building a Twin for the street. All are
forwarded to our "Tech Advisor" Norb
Locke, most never to be heard from again. Gordon Tronson sent more than an e-mail and a dream - we have pictures of the real deal. What makes his project even more interesting is he chose to use the side by side method for mounting his 4.6 alloy Ford engines. Will keep this page updated as we receive more info and photos.
10 / 28 / 2009 Update ......
Posting the latest pictures from Gordon,
as you can see, things are progressing
at a rapid pace. Aftermarket parts for
these engines very limited - Gordon is making the supercharger manifolds.
The parts for connecting the engines
together are done - will have details and pictures as soon as some testing is

There are still a few mechanical details
to finish but our latest photos show the
Twin For The Street assembled and look
ing good at a recent car show.
