545 Dyno results and build specs

This is the specs and dyno results for our new 14:1 compression 545....

!!!!!!! CAUTION !!!!! LONG POST.........



Dove A block w. Program 4 bolt caps and screw in freeze plugs
4.390 bore
4.5 forged Scat crank from Brian @AD performance
6.7 Eagle H beam rods w. ARP 2000 bolts also from AD performance
JE Flattop off the shelf pistons providing 14:1 compression... Part #257665
JE low tension ring set
Assembled out of the box Kaase P-51 heads from Scott @ RHP
Custom Ground Solid Roller Cam also from RHP....



Comp Cams 836-16 roller lifters
Harland sharp 1.73 rocker
3/8 pushrods...8.950 intake, 9.150 exhaust
Jomar P-51 stud Girdle from Lem @BF Evans Ford
FRPP 9 position timing chain and gears
DannyBee torrington cam thrust bearing kit
OEM timing cover from Jon Faubion (Richter69)
FRPP dampner w. alum. crank spacer also from BF Evans
Moroso Fox Body oil pan and pickup #20625
Melling HV oil pump w. ARP driveshaft
Box stock 4150 Victor
HP Holley 950
MSD Dizzy and wires
Autolight 3911 plugs
FRPP alum. water pump from Lem @ BF Evans
FRPP tall cast valve covers
1 7/8 x 37 x 3.0 headers


Here's the best dyno run I got w. this ......timing locked out at 30 degrees, 1"open spacer and 76 squared on the HP950, Sunoco 112 fuel


After I was satisfied that I got most out of this we tryed putting 2 1/8 fox body headers on it to see if the 1 7/8 were too restrictive, we saw this......


Then we swapped out the 4150 for a ported 4500 Victor and put on a standard Holley 1050 jetted @ 86 square w. no spacer at all and got this........(it's a bit rich and likely woulda needed a spacer or two. I wish I woulda had more time to optimize the dominator combo??




I was out of time and due to a leaking intake end seal my dyno day was over. :roll: I plan on running it for now w. the 4150 and 1 7/8 and see how it does in my 67 Shortbed f100, then when i decide i need more, i'll step to a 1150 and maybe a Bigger roller to get it up over 800hp. I'm sure i can get close w. just a bigger dominator and some jetting.

Here is most all the video i took unedited from the dyno session....




Please feel free to give any input on future cam recommendations, or tell me what you think i should change to optmize.....or just to critique my work.
And thanks to all who supplied advice, input and parts for this build. Without this site and all your help, i'd never had gotten to this point....

Thanks
Mike

Ps....I know this build isn't documented anywhere near as well as Damon's............but I did give a fair Effort :lol: :lol:

Mike I hope you have a windage tray in that engine if not I would sure invest in one shortly. for some reason I have seen in the past where the rear sump pans have a tendence to pick up oil and keep it in the rotating assembly... just food for thought

How was the oil pressure? Was it consistent through the rpm band? Just wondered, didn't see it on the dyno sheets.

Cold it was about 80 @ idle, warmed up was mid 60's @ idle.
Mid 50's @ the end of the pull, ( 6500rpm.) Seemed about right to me.....

Honestly ........I don't have an answer to either question ops: it belonged to the dyno shop. All I know is what he jetted it at before the pull.
I Do know it was just a Standard Holley brand 1050, nothin special.

Very nice. I had a couple questions. Does the rear sump oil pan fit with the stock crossmember and steering arms because I was told I needed a front sump for my truck. Also are you still gonna drive it on the street with the compression being that high. I guess you will be putting a cage in the truck now because its gonna need it

I've had both front and rear sump pans in this thing before........stock crossmember and steering for now. I started out w. a oem passenger front sump, then converted to the ford racing truck pan and now the moroso. They all fit about the same, although the moroso makes is a little easier to drop the oil. The front sump was the worst for this as it dropped the oil right on the crossmember. (I'd like to switch to mustang II this winter because i'm not really excited about the twin I beams at 130mph.)

I took it out for about a 10 mile drive this morning, other than the high comp. it has just as good a manner as the 429 it replaced. I plugged the thermostat bypass and ran the FRPP waterpump and gutted the thermostat and it only get's up to 160 degrees :lol: . I dont' drive it much on the street......so the gas isn't an issue yet :roll: It mostly will be driven about 20 mi. to the track and then home.
I already installed the cage........so should be ready to try it out next weekend.......
