Well after selling off 3 engines I have built for this car I am finally going to install a big block in her.
I had a 70K mile unmolested C9 lincoln 460 which was essentially a good runner with no bore wear or inappropriate wear anywhere excepting the timing set which still had the nylon teeth on the cam gear. Decided to build an engine with parts lying around the shop so here is what I have"
Block decked .012" to set pistons .002 out of the bore
Stock C9 pistons with 11 cc dish. Will notch for large valves.
Reringed and a quick hone to freshen the straight cylinder bores.
Polished crank and select fit .001" clevite bearings
Paul Kane modded std volume oil pump.
Voodoo cam 219/227 on a 110 with mid 500" s lift ground with 4 degrees advance. Installed 1 degree advanced to 105 ICL. (Cam and lifter set free courtesy of my cam grinder.)
1.8 ratio comp high teck stainless roller rockers for .560" / .582" final lift
RPM intake gasket matched to felpro std gasket.
Edelbrock large chamber heads fully ported concentrating on good flow under .600" lift, decked .060" and .030" off of the intake side. 10.1 to 1 final C/R with an 8.8 to 1 DCR. (Thank you for the good deal Dave Ohagin) 330/233 cfm @ .600" lift. Squish grooves.
Holley 750 reworked by bobby at competition carbs. choke tower removed, rear metering block added, emulsion circuits reworked, air bleeds set up for this combo, quick change vac sec dashpot cover. Flows 820 cfm with down leg boosters that have been massaged and have a shear ledge.
Summit high volume mechanical fuel pump. Vehicle has 3/8" fuel lines and a 5/16" return
Dual snorkle 5.0 HO aircleaner with K&N filter ducted to cool air on sides of radiator.
either 6126 hookers or FPA headers.
3" X pipe and magnaflows with 2.5" tail pipes
B&M holeshot 2400 stall convertor purchased from a forum member thank you Andy M!!! Killer deal.
3.25 or 3.5 gears with trak loc. Already have 2.75 trak loc 9" now just need to change gears.
With a full iron 400 and a/c she weighed 4320 pounds. Should come in at around 4150 with all a/c removed and the aluminum heads, intake and water pump on the 460.
I am going to conservatively estimate HP at 460 and torque at 510.
I may change the cam to an EX solid flat tappet 230/236 @ .050 .584" / .600" lift ground again on a 110 because of the 1.8 rockers. would be 109 with std rockers.
The idea as the name states is to run 12.99 at about 105+ mph. Traction will be a huge problem I know...
