Running 2.5 inch exhaust with Flowmaster super 40's. The cam is the trickflow cam that came with the topend kit. I will post the specs when I get home but I believe they are 296/300 with .60 lift. We built the entire frame from scratch using qa1 torsion bar front k member,and arms,and the rear is a four link with qa1 coil overs. The truck itself is a 1940 dodge. I will post some picsView attachment 1715630159 View attachment 1715630160 View attachment 1715630161 View attachment 1715630163 View attachment 1715630164 View attachment 1715630162
Looks like Amsoil going into the diff. Good show!

So finally got the motor together finished her up today. She sounds way smoother,and feels snappy. Still have to do some tuning after Thanksgiving break, and of course the entire front of the truck needs to be reassembled. Then I can take here for a rip. Thanks again for all the help. Will let yall know how she feels.

Not enough info however if you follow Andyf and everything seems not ready to fly apart stick it on a Chassis dyno for a couple of pulls.

Getting 600hp is not always text book. The easiest way is CI however even that can fall short with a bad combo. But yes, if you had 600hp you would be sideways in the street at will lol....

The easiest, cheapest way is a shot of nitrous

I know time gets away from ya quick. Gonna see if there is any interest in the trick flow parts.
What Trick Flow parts are you going to be letting go? I’m guessing the cam and intake? I’m glad to see this project come back up, nothing like a well built 440 with the right parts to make things lively.

Yes the cam and high rise single trick flow intake. I can look up specs for you but I believe they are in this thread

Looking forward to seeing how much improvement you’re going to have. I still see a good 9 inch tight converter in your future when you get it to hook, but the difference should be night and day from where you started from.
