    Stacking aluminum lowering block?

    If you do a google search you will see guys who run 7s/8s in the qtr. on leaf springs with steel lowering blocks, a couple had blocks as much as 4". Opinions are kind of like the whole wheel spacer thing and you will see those guys running them as well at those times. I used these LOWERING...

    TF & Speedmater Flow Tests

    I have an engine, a dyno, two out of the three sets of heads I want to test and two out of the three intakes so I am getting close.

    TF & Speedmater Flow Tests

    In this case I don't think track times are better than dyno results, too many variables. Take one engine, one dyno, two sets of heads and get the tune spot on is the most accurate comparison you can get.

    70 dart 470 ci drag car build.

    TF & Speedmater Flow Tests

    I don't dispute that the bloomer heads are top notch for a std. port head and make more power but I don't consider them to be in the same category as the trickflow. They have larger intake port than most ootb intakes can be ported to, are roughly 1K more than trickflows and add the fact that...

    Desk Top Dyno

    I get it, I am actually pretty conservative and like to do more with less myself as my budget has made it necessary. I guess that is why I am so eager to test things that otherwise would not be tested, who is going to spend the money to buy parts and pay for dyno time all in the name of...

    Desk Top Dyno

    In the next 90 days is the plan. The engine will be a typical 408 with a moderate solid flat tappet cam, 10.5 compression and several intakes as well including a victor, trickflow, rpm, and an m1.

    Desk Top Dyno

    I knew you would like that lol. He does have a flowbench and a dyno so there must be a reason he is using the 50 degree stuff now. It could be in limited applications but I don't know his reasoning, I hope to test this and many other things on the dyno. The first test coming up is trickflow vs...

    Taylor Swift after the breakup

    I think Taylor Swift could stand to eat a few cheeseburgers once in a while but this is a bit much lol.

    Desk Top Dyno

    So using the the current comp 314R-10 and the head flow in post #100 I came up with 733hp. Just to add I use desktop dyno (the basic comp cams version) quite a bit for fun to predict what power it will make on the dyno and so far if I am conservative with the inputs the hp/tq peaks are pretty...

    Fwiw here are some flow numbers for a set of Brett Miller w5's that were sold on here and now happen to be sitting in my garage.

    Desk Top Dyno

    So a guy building small block mopar engines at the highest level decides he wants to do his own version of a w5 head and guys on here think they can make more power with a ported stock/edelbrock/speedmaster lol. Have at it boys!, when you guys have engines that make power with non offset rocker...

    In my experience If a bench doesn't look like that then the person isn't getting enough work done lol

    Small block + 4 speed build

    Depending on the block you should need to mill around .010-.015 off to achieve zero deck, at least that has been my experience.

    Trailering to a race in freezing temperatures

    I just went through this Bill with the recent weather lol. I spent last Saturday jammed in my trailer taking out the block plugs to drain the coolant, definitely a game of twister!. If possible do what what has been said and pull the block plugs (leave the system empty) then replace with...

    checking cam lobe taper/nitriding lobes

    I will say that I saw the difference between a cryo treated cam and untreated while Tim was switching intakes on the dyno. Both were near identical 408 builds (cams/valve springs) and the treated cam looked brand new after break in and 30 or so pulls where as the untreated showed normal wear.

    Small block w/ 3.79 crank

    That is going to be awesome, my dyno partner Tim has a couple 3.79 cranks and at some point he is going to build one. We are always discussing builds to dyno test with and really wanted to find a way to do one with a 3.79 crank. We think the hp would peak at a higher rpm than a 4" and make more...

    73 Duster build named Fred

    Oh and if you don't already know mopar nats at Woodburn is moved out until August 4th this year so a bit more time for you. The thing that sucks for a few of us is so far they don't show a stick class so hopefully they will have one. Of course as you know you really need to have your car...
