    Another 273 commando build .. This one will be a "BEAST"

    I thought I'd give this recent 273 build with the isky cam the "BEAST" name because, even If I built another 273 with that big Erson cam and 10.5 compression pistons , this recent build will walk all over it.

    no ..............this 273 has the 10.5 dome pistons. this engine makes way more hp and tq than the (erson) big cam did. this 273 "SCREAMS" !!

    Another 273 commando build .. This one will be a "BEAST"

    upon doing more research on these 1 3/4" fenderwell headers ... I think they will not be a good choice for the 273 .. may take away alot of bottom end power away . I think the sweet spot is 1 5/8".

    1 3/4" Headers Verses 1 7/8" on a Healthy 408....Is There a Big Difference??

    If I new what the hedman 1 3/4" fender well headers looked like, I'd probally buy a set. I tried to get a pic of what they looked like from hedman with no luck. they just told me it's just a down size version of the 1 7/8" headers. Early A body that is . I had the 1 7/8" hedman fenderwells...
