Talking New 545 build

I plan on using this in a 1977 f-100, I had a 427 sideoiler in it and sold that.
I have a pre 1979 block .030 over that I picked up form a shop, ( some one dropped it off had the work done and never came back) they told me when I get the pistons to check the clearance and if it was to tight they would hone it out a little.

I plan to run E85 @ 12.5 to 13 to 1 compression 4.5" stroke naturally aspirated. ford racing SCJB heads with a small solid roller cam.

This will be a weekend warrior maybe go to the strip a few times so I don't want to run much of a stall converter if any at all in my c6 tranny. I am looking for a weiand Stealth Intake Manifold.

I live near Gainsville FL if any one would like to offer a good machine shop .

any advice would be appreciated.

Now I get it because that manifold is available almost anywhere ... you have no interest in buying that manifold NEW.

950 carb will work good. Possibly a Holley HP 1000 that works with the 4150 style bolt pattern.

Good idea would be to back cut the intake valves!!..........and get a custom camshaft for those heads.

Looking good

Be careful with the E85. Don't leave it in the carb over long periods of no use, it may jell on you. It will pit the insides of the carb too. Also, change the oil more often. I hear there are less problems when used in a fuel injection system.
