Tom is the God father of the 385. Was in the magazine's back in the late 70s. Tom thanks for yor imput. I can appreciate what long rods can do. Probably works well with our limited exhaust flow.
Members have pointed out that icon pistons and aftermarket rods are available to build this combo.
Yes Tom had it together back in the 80"s.
one poster thougth a guy that could run 9.90 with a BBF in the mid 80's was something great . He would have thought Tom was the god of the BBF runing in the 8's second 1/4 mile.
One other thing over looked and came up several times, P/S short deck blocks.
9.00 deck hight block with short con rods . Know what was forgotten? the stroke and bore size . they properly are running a 1.8 rod ratio today or close to it
