Starting with bare heads is really only required if you need a combination of parts that's different than what's spec'd, and it'll almost certainly be significantly more expensive to build them that...

Sure. It might be worth mentioning that the oil pan in the photo was only used for break-in, and I have a custom built 9 quart deal with trap doors, windage tray, etc. in the car that I'll swap out...

L2366's are 429 pistons, so depending on the rest of the combination, and where you plan to use it, you may get away with smaller chamber heads on pump gas. The pistons have stock location valve...

Early small chamber heads would be my first choice. That'll get you into a more performance oriented compression ratio. You'll want to find the matching stock rockers and pushrods to go with them...

Bigger carbs require bigger jets because the signal is weaker. An increase in elevation is a decrease in air density, and an even weaker signal to the carb, which may require bigger jets.

Google says 510-525 for a 351W. I subtracted some for alum heads and added some for the 4-bolt Boss block and stroker crank.

To be fair, many of the parts in my 514 were selected with lower...

The main "problems" are that it's a small block, the heads are no better than mildly ported factory iron big block heads, and the compression is too low for the combination.



For reference, I...

If you're not planning to make more than 650HP, and/or you don't plan to spray it, a cast crank will be strong enough.

Don't forget that this car runs in 7000-9000 feet of density altitude, and more timing is usually required for higher elevations.

Elevation may also be playing a role in the need for larger than...

The best timing is the timing it runs fastest with. 28 is a safe place to start. Add timing in 2 degree increments until it slows down. And if you have a higher stall convertor, the advance curve...

No reason to stick with the .990 pin if you're replacing the pistons too. Just use a stock dimension rod with the appropriate piston. And 40010 does appear to be the right one.

There's a lot of value in the that crank being a re-worked factory forging vs. a new aftermarket piece, in my opinion. I would have been all over it about a year ago at that price. You should have...
