472" build with A429's

Here is what Iím building for 2014. My block is at the machine shop for boring and my rotating assembly is getting balanced as well. You will notice I didnít list the cam yet, I ordered a custom solid flat tappet cam and lifters from Scotty J and I havenít received it yet but itís 260/272 @ .050, 109 LSA and 105 ICL...That's it for now. I hope to be on the dyno in 2-3 weeks. Expecting to see 600-625HP and maybe a 9.? time slip if my weight calculations are right and she hook's up.

I just built a 472 with flat tops and .015 in the hole .720 comp solid roller 268/272@.050 out of the box eddy RPM's and a 1050 dommy, 8" converter w/glide and 430 gears in a 3650LB Cyclone and its been 6.54@105.50 and 10.26@130.50 so if your car is lighter than 3650 it will go into the 9"s pretty easy, I will keep reading so let us know when you get there, good luck

By my calculations my car will be 2965lbs with the driver. I'm going to weigh it this spring.

Thats near perfect hook up......nice going any pics?

Going by the moroso calculator,IMO is a good guide.........your making 610 real HP at the fly. Nice build Butterbean.

Bigrigtech you will be easy mid to high 9's.

I guess time will tell what it will run and if it will hook well enough to go in the 9's.
