Looking for some 351W guru's (Forums?)

Hey guys,

Building a bad 351W atm, and I'm looking for some guys with some serious small block knowledge.

Know of any forums for me to check out?

Thanks!

I'm sure guys on here have built plenty if you have specific questions. Otherwise, corral.net has some good info, lots of BS to sort through, but you can figure it out what you need to know from known combos that have been posted, usually.

Glad to hear someone else is doing a 351w Mine is going to be pretty mild, at least until I can afford a decent set of heads. I'd love to do a homebrew turbo setup though. I'd be interested to hear what route you're taking with your build..

Thanks for the help. I am going to give you guys a shot at my questions first, and like Chilly said, I'm thinking you guys will be able to answer them... I'm sure a couple here have built a decent small block before.

As for my combo... I am not sure where I am going yet... N/A motor, alum. heads, not sure if I plan to run this one on race gas.

Use the Edelbrock Air-Gap intake manifold.
A CUSTOM solid lifter camshaft; presuming you are NOT using a later OEM hydraulic roller block.

These will get you well on your way past 400 horsepower with under 10.2/1 compression ratio.

I built 50 crate engines for Panos Racing which had much less than this, (X305 FRPP cylinder heads with a Z303 hydraulic roller camshaft), and they HAD to dyno between 405 and 410 horsepower at 6,000 RPM.

I really appreciate the help.

Just wondering why you recommend the iron cylinder head. Just plain cost effectiveness? Spending less money is fine by me, ha-ha; but the aluminum pieces are not that much more money.

The RHS heads have two combustion chamber sizes available, 58 and 64 CC. Is there a reason a guy would choose one over the other, besides the change in compression ratio?

The block is going .030 over, 357 C.I.

Thank you,

Derek.

You said money was an issue and the cast iron heads are cheaper ... personally, I would use the aluminum versions.

The combustion chamber differences are only to get closer to the compression ratio you wish with the short block you have.

Thanks a lot.

About head gaskets... Wondering what you recommend. RHS wants Fel-Pro #1152. Been reading around, these gaskets sound good to me.

Not sure if I should step it up with 10:1 + compression ratio.

No nitrous.

Having a hard time finding a forged piston that will yield me the compression ratio we are after on 91 octane. 58 cc chamber, probably going with the aluminum heads.

72' block.

You've been a huge help, I appreciate it.

I use the FRPP head gaskets made by Fel-Pro. M-6051-S331 for iron heads, or with high compression or nitrous with aluminum heads and M-6051-CP331 for aluminum heads under 11/1 compression ratio.
M-9430-A50 intake manifold gaskets.
