Okay, so the salt didn't happen this year. Got my entry in for next year's SORC and should find out in a couple of weeks if I got in or not. Alternatives will be the BBORR or Bonneville.
So....time to build a new engine.
I've been collecting parts for most of the year, and I'm currently working on initial mock-up and porting the heads/intake.
-needs enough vac for power brakes
-has to rev to 6500 (for top speed runs)
-will run at 4500+rpm for extended periods
-pump gas (at 3500+ elevation)
-cross country durability/drivability
Nodular iron 4.150 stroke crankshaft
4340 H-beams, 6.700 length
SRP 4032 alloy pistons, +.080 bore, -28cc dish
Total Seal file fit moly rings
King XP bearings
Top end kit:
A429 heads with Ferrea 2.3/1.76 valves and Lunati springs, etc.
Lunati roller rockers
Lunati 3/8 custom length pushrods
Lunati custom solid flat tappet (244/252@.050, .607/.633, 118LS)
Lunati solid flat lifters with edm oiling
