598 BBF

Good looking engine. I am in the process of getting my parts to build my 598. Only difference is I will be running A441 Hemi heads with dual Ron's Terminators on alky. Keep us posted on what it does at the track. Good luck! :D

That's a great looking motor Doug. Very good numbers on the dyno. You must be pretty happy!

We're in the process of getting our A460/A460 setup together. A very similar setup to yours. Evans heads, Bryant billet crank and 15:1. We still have not decided on fuel setup yet, right now we're thinking Enderle Birdcatcher on the TFS tunnelram. The setup should put our Bantam well into the 7's.

Whose rocker covers are you running? They look like they have a 3/8" thick rail.

That thing looks awsome! And oh so close to 1000Hp. How long did you try for that 5hp??
We hit 995 on the 16th a final pull. We ran out of time and low on fuel. We wanted to try one of Charlie's plenum spacers but just didn't have the time. I will test one at the track though.

Oiling System

Doug, why did you decide to run an external oil pump? The reason I am curious is that I am switching to a Billet Fabrications 2 piece oil pan & a Titan billet pro oil pump. I was rumnning a Canton full sump pan & stock type pump. My oil pressure would go to zero on decelleration after a run. But when my data logger showed the fluctuations through out the run, I had to make a change. Were you having some of the same problems also? I considered an external pump & dry sump set up but decided to go this way because I already had a wet sump vacuum pump & engine diaper . Here is a pic of my 557 CJ

Several reasons. The Wet/Vac pump is two pumps in one, oil pump and vacuum pump. Some people have had problems with the distributors gear pin shearing off, which could be fixed by using a larger diameter pin. I didn't like that idea because I felt it would also weaken the distributor shaft. Finally the timing is a lot more stable, not jumping around when you put a light on it. Another thing the gear should last longer without the load of the oil pump on it.

doug i have a tfs tunnel ram on a 606 ci. cant get a distributor in it. what kind of dist. is that u got in yours? can you give me part numbers and where i can buy. nice looking motor. is your car a 10.5 car or big tire car. what kind of times are you expecting out of that big motor. i purchased an alum tall deck 606ci similar to your set up. it has tfs tunnel ram and motorsport a-460 heads. also are the motorsports as good as the tfs heads. i have a brand new set of tfs heads but if the motorsports are just as good im going to sell the tfs heads.

The distributor is a MSD low profile deal that has to run the crank trigger, don't remember the part #, but just call summit and tell them what intake your running and the part number pops up on there computer. :D
