Engine was originally built by Ryan Johnson, SDSS in 2009, freshened by SDSS in 2011. In the fall of 2011 we had a fire in our 69 Dart. The heads were sent to Brett Miller in Jan. 2012 were Brett discovered that the heads although “new” Spintron time only heads they were two slightly different heads. Brett improved the flow of the heads and cleaned up the valve job. The engine sat until the spring of 2016 when I took it to Matt Hensley @ at Hensley Performance, Knoxville, TN where Matt went completely through the engine and re-assembled adding the Weber belt drive and the sheetmetal intake.

I have documentation of all work done on this engine. I will only share detailed specs with a serious buyer!!!

This engine ran a best of 5.20’s at 3000 + ft. DA in our 69 Dart. The car weighed a little over 3000lbs. with ladder bar rear suspension, Liberty Equalizer 5 speed trans. w/ a dual disc clutch, 420 intake & Dominator. We never saw the true potential of this combo on the nitrous. The car was built to run both n/a in Gear Jammers and heads up in the local small tire class. The 3.06 first gear and 4.10 rear gear (12.54 SLR) made it difficult to get off the starting line on 28 x 10.5’s. In a good chassis and with the right SLR this combo should run bottom 5’s or high 4’s.


No tire kickers or picture collectors. Please don't waste my time or yours if you are not a serious buyer!
