New 545 build
I plan on using this in a 1977 f-100, I had a 427 sideoiler in it and sold that.
I have a pre 1979 block .030 over that I picked up form a shop, ( some one dropped it off had the work done and never came back) they told me when I get the pistons to check the clearance and if it was to tight they would hone it out a little.
I plan to run E85 @ 12.5 to 13 to 1 compression 4.5" stroke naturally aspirated. ford racing SCJB heads with a small solid roller cam.
This will be a weekend warrior maybe go to the strip a few times so I don't want to run much of a stall converter if any at all in my c6 tranny. I am looking for a weiand Stealth Intake Manifold.
I live near Gainsville FL if any one would like to offer a good machine shop .
any advice would be appreciated.
