460 build progress
Well I finally get to post here in th build section.
I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone that did help with all my questions over the past couple of years or so.
Thanks Paul, Brian, and all the others, there were a lot, which is a testament to this site and how great it is.
Just a quick rundown on the part used:
D1VE block, .030 over, cleaned up, new cam bearings
460 crank .010 under all journals Rotating assem will be internally balanced.
Eagle SIR rods (Press fit, my machinist will hone for floating and oil hole)
Speed Pro L2443 pistons w/dome
cam is Comp 294S dur. is 248 @ .050 LSA-110
Heads DOVE C ported by me with all your help, came out pretty good if I do say so myself! HAHA
Manley SS valves in/ex 2.25/ 1.74
Harland Sharp Rollers, 3/8 pushrods
will be running a port o sonic w/ proform 950 to start
MSd billit dist w/ 7Al box
rest of car -
turbo action trans w/8" converter (Don't have the stall spec in front of me but think it is 4 0r 4500, reverse manual with all work done in Jacksonville).
4.57 spool w/31 spline strange axles 16x33 good years out back, I know they are probably a bit large for my application, but they were free.
Anyway the block was dropped at my machinist and will be ready this Friday, so I'll be ready to start building. Paul, I would like to talk with you next week about this build and what you think I'd need for an oil pump and drive for this project, sound good?
I know this isn't a large scale stroker motor but it feels like it when I get finished putting it together.
Anybody have an idea what the HP/TQ/ET I will get out of this?
Oh the car is 2750# (Maybe a little lighter with port work)
On a side note this car did go 11.55 best with mild street 460 and a hydraulic cam
with the throttle opening to only 3/4 (not my intentionat the time) I found the gas peddle bottomed out against the firewall, so I think the car left a lot on the table, when you reached say 5500 RPM, the car would nose over and just level off on the speed.
Anyway thanks for all the help, I'll post some pics of the build here.
