Thats a nice piece. I've a soft spot for these cars dont know why I havent built one yet.

On the trans you may want to try a t400 with a 2.10 first gear. Reasonable hit on launch less rpm drop on the shifts and pretty much bullet proof.

Default Got The Heads Back-Photos

Got the heads back today , and attached are a few photos.

Ended up with a reasonable gain across the board , 6% to 12% in the .400 to .800 range. The flow figures are in txt form because the file size was too large , but first figures( base) are heads without manifold as cast, second are with as cast manifold and heads with fill in port , and Mod 3 is after porting with manifold on and all at 25" , and the second figures are at 28" , nothing to write home about ( specially with the flows that some are getting out of them ) but it is not a max effort deal yet. Mod2 and Mod3 flow figures are with manifold bolted to head when on the bench. The % gain is between Mod2 and Mod3 , not the Base and Mod3. The manifold may not look much but it does work rather well.

0.100 to 0.800 total flows at 28" with the manifold bolted on are I= 2393cfm and E= 2175cfm. Ave balance 90% I to E.

It is still going to make a bunch of power.

Bruce,

we are going to see how violent it launches with the C6 at 2.46 first gear . If I cant tune the suspension to handle it on the hit , we will try taking a few degress out of it in first or fattening it up with a solinoid operated pill.

We are building a C4 to play with also , see if we can get it to live , and get a new 2.20 first gear cut.

If all this fails , I will join everyone else and throw a PG in it.

John

Smile Update

Just a quick update .

Springs and Ti retainers are here , gone with Manley Nextek 221456-16 , a compact 1.5 dia and will give me 450lbs on the seat for that heavy intake valve. I decided to make this engine spin safely to 8500rpm , may need to rev it up to show its full potential.

Block had to be clearanced again for the Z-Bar lifters as they fouled against the block on the cylinder wall side.

Getting ready for final mock up, build the sump , fit pumps etc, and then final hone and assembly.

I do hope this thing will make good power , as a chebbie competitor in the same class as me ( Modified Altered ) just went 950hp with his 572 on the same dyno I am going to.

Fingers crossed, John.

Default Update with photos

Well we have been hard at work , clearanced the block and now to the bolt on's.

New two piece sup has been made , rocker covers milled and a light polish , starting on remount of the oil pump , fuel pump , and alternator to suit the short snout crank.

Then its a on the mill again to make up a new drive mandrel.

In the background of one of the engine photo's you will notice another Hemi , the Mopar type , with a new intake to suit 24 injectors for a twin turbo 526ci set for ProStreet duties.

Thanks Guys ,

the bracket I race in is dial-your-own , so I can pretty much run what I brung.

I had the option of going max effort race with a small block or big block , but decided to stay True To The Blue , and put something on the track that no-one here in WA has seen before ( You reckon Boss engines are few and far between over there , I had never seen one in the flesh until my parts arrived from Kaase , and I have been in drag racing for over 25years now).

This engine combo , race internals with traditional look , will turn heads. It is innovative in many ways , as you cant buy any of the stuff for this engine in boxes . It is one Sh*% load of custom machining and fabrication.

Its going to look the part , now we just need it to make good power 7500RPM - 8000RPM and it will be a low 7 or possibly even a high 6 race car , naturally aspirated.

Fingers crossed.

John

OH, someone get me a bib and a diaper!!! lol As far as exhaust goes, a tuned header will be better matched to a NA set up, more low end torque.....Zoomies, on the other hand, give you that over the top, Altered/Fuel car look. Since you're running a dial of your own choice, as I am in my Rail (and I might just go with a zoomie for my NA motor....just for the look), being down a few horses down low might be acceptable. As a matter of fact, since you're going to be running a three speed, you should be getting quick revs (where a short tube zoomie would work) right out of the hole any way.....Just my 2 cents worth.

Thanks Rob,

it is food for thought. One of our concerns is too much down low with a 2.46 first gear . We were thinking of taking timing out in first gear if we could not control it. I am not adverse to loosing a bit of bottom end for a free-er reving top end.

John

Well then, maybe a set of the longer Funny Car zoomies then, to get by your running boards.
