Thanks for the reply Tim, and thanks for that article. The 70 Boss 302 is my all time fave car. That article was fantastic. And yeah..those modern PS engine look pretty darned complicated. I'll be looking forward to your upcoming article!

Mike, I was the writer of the Boss 302 article.  It was a multi-year effort (both researching and building) and it is really good to hear that you found it to be of interest.  I'm afraid today's Pro-Stock engines are beyond my capabilities, but I do have an article coming up which will touch upon some wiring basics of a mid 1960's Chrysler Early Hemi dragster motor (though not anywhere the depth of  Drew's article). 

Best regards.....TIM

I have to say..I was looking through my older SA issues(SA Enthusiast} and realized that those are better mags than whats offered today. Not that SA is crap today, it isn't, it's still a great mag. What I mean is the older mags had more to help a builder along the lines of diagrams and templates. Not to mention in depth builds like the Boss Mustang 2 parter. That was an incredible article and had fantastic diagrams.

My Holy Grail though, which was another 2 parter submitted by Drew Hierwarter, is the Making A Monster: Super detailing an early 1970's top fuel engine from June 2000. That..is a fantastic article. I've referred to it so much over the years it's falling apart, literally. Pro Stock cars seem to be as popular as they've ever been in the past. How about asking one of these talented builders to do a detailed, in depth modern PS engine build. These monsters have so many wires and lines going to and from it could probably be another 2 parter at least. Consider it..please! It would be a great issue!
