I was chatting with Scotty at RHP a couple weeks ago about getting a copy of the flow #'s on some CJ E'brock's he did for me 3 years ago. Needless to say, I've been impressed how my car has run and Scotty was also. He suggested I post the build so here goes. I should start by saying my car weighs 3820+ with me in it. It also has a 123" wheel base so its a load to get going and the motor was build accordingly. Using Virtual engine calculator 2005 and a best run:
1.398 60 ft
105.9 mph
It's putting out around 810 hp. Runs real consistant 6.60's to 6.70 depending on the weather and I'm in Minnesota so those are no sea level runs. After going through my compiled receipts heres a complete carb to pan for less then $9000 and still running strong 3 years later.

With all the above said, I want to thank everybody on 460.com. My son and I started on this car 8 years ago and through its evolution from a C9 headed low 12 second car to where I'm at now couldn't have been acheived without the smarts, other peoples trial and error to get where I'm at now. A mid to low 10 second 57merc wagon ain't to bad. Next, a good crank, 4 bolt main and some of them uncle Charlies P-51's. I can smell 9.50's
