Most people have a navigator, but I fly solo. Partly because everyone I know is too chicken, but also because I don't want to be responsible for somebody if something goes wrong.

Did you have those arias pistons custom made for your 429? How much dome do they have?

Yes, the Arias pistons were custom made way back in 1997? As I recall the dome is 10cc or so.

Well, looks like there's going to be no racing on the salt this year.


USFRA Officials at the salt Wednesday Sept 4, 2013 report the salt is flooded. there is standing water on all of the speedweek courses including in the pits and starting/staging area.

We Regret to announce,
World of Speed Sept 7-10 2013 is Officially Cancelled

With a set of D0VE heads that's a little over 12:1 static compression. Impressive for a 429. Like to have a set of those for mine.

I can have them on made to order by Diamond and on your doorstep in two weeks.

(I'm showing 12.86:1 though)

Hey Carl,

Did you ever lower the nose on that thing (see 1st video)? Also, I recommend a steering box upgrade. I hear that a SPA-T from a 71 Mustang is an improvement. I gutted the one from a 72 Mustang and put it back together with 1989 Z28 parts. Big difference.

The car sits about an inch off the bump stops with the cut coils. The nose up deal in the video is purely air-induced. I did actually make an air dam for B-ville, but we'll have to wait and see how it works I guess. Nothing fancy, just something I hacked together in about an hour with sheet metal and conveyor belt material. It sits about 3" off the ground, and as you can see still scrapes a bit.

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.

Build parameters:
-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

Short-block:
514 CID
D0VE-A block
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
Lunati 9-key billet double roller timing set
Torker II intake port matched to heads
Holley/Proform 1050 carb with annular boosters

Projections are 655HP and 633TQ at sea level (500HP / 492TQ at local 6200ft elevation).

Attached is a graph showing the current 429 vs. the new 514.

Cool car, Carl. I like big cars and I can't deny....lol.
I'm starting to finally move forward on my '74 Montego MX. Just a fun street car but I'm gathering parts to put together a 521 with SCJ-A heads. Scotty J. is gonna do a little touch up on the heads for me.

Anyway, good luck on your ride. Looks like you're gonna have some serious power there.

Thanks. I think the hardest part is going to be getting this thing painted this year. The engine is ready for final assembly, just need to find the time.

Sounds like a great build I can't wait to see the video runs, she should build rpm quick and hum right along.

Have you been using the Lunati Roller Rockers much? I just happened to see them in the new summit catalog and they seem like a nice piece.

It's the only alum roller rocker I use anymore. High quality and the geometry works well for most BBF applications.

I love it, those cars are awsome. I can't wait to see the car once you put a new motor in it. That car is pretty rare I've never seen one with a 460 in it. SWEET
