      You and I are alike. We love building stuff, the bigger the challenge, the more we (deep down) enjoy it. The difficult gets dome immediately, the impossible takes a day or so. I always have a what if project to think about, when my head hits the pillow, I fall right asleep.....and start building.

            Making progress on the Dart motor. Waiting on some
            Head gaskets and push rods now. Hoping dyno time in a few weeks.

            A different converter showed up, this Turbo Action unit will match the Dart combo much better.

            That’s about it for now.

              Great to see you!
              Wish they made clear valve covers to show off the valvetrain.

                Thanks! I've been making headway but it's been a slow process. Sorry no clear valve covers, wrinkle back Stage V instead. Gonna have to decide whether to leave it the all-alloy look or paint when the time comes.

                    Ahhh shucks, thanks Mr. Denny!
                    It's been slow going though with the Hemi. Lots of parts delays, but in a few weeks it will be time to get it on the dyno. Had to get different head studs, the new KB blocks take different studs, then the top bank of studs, missed getting those, so another wait. Now waiting for head gaskets and push rods after getting to the point to measuring things up. Still have to modify the steam holes in the Eddy heads, which was another surprize. When using the KB block with 4.5" bore the steam holes need to be moved over on the Edelbrock heads. Then it will be clear sailing.

                    Any guessers want to predict HP & TQ ? Pump gas 572.

                          It would be gross, no alternator and using an electric water pump.

                            850 HP is actually my target HP goal so I hope you're right Jet. I'll swipe the AED 1050 off my Plymouth on dyno day and make a pull with that too.

                              My Wheeler Racing 572 crossram hemi made 748 Hp and about the same torque. It was a mild cam, roller rocker,solid lifter, mopar heads, 10.5 to one build.

                                If I see 850HP I'll be one happy camper but keeping it 91 octane friendly limits potential. Laugh at the Dog comment, funny. The hemi is costing this dog a lot of bones!

                                  Thanks for this comparison Savoy. Your build is similar, just a little milder across the board. Did your Mopar heads have work done to them, did you have them flowed?

                                  I’ll be watching yours for power. Mine will be down a bit just because of the cubes. But, I’m building a very similar one to yours for my Dart. Also planning on pump gas street use.

                                  mp mega block 4.405
                                  4.5 in molnar crank
                                  7.100 rod
                                  11.:1 CP pistons (548 CI)
                                  Bullet roller (street profile)
                                  1.6/1.5 barton rockers
                                  Edelbrock heads (done by modern cylinder head)
                                  Haven’t decided if I’ll run my mp crossram, go barton cross ram, or just run the barton single with a dominator.

                                    I'd say depending on your intake choice you'll see all of what I'll be making and more. Your Edelbrock heads sure laid down some big numbers. When is this going together?

                                      honestly i have everything for the engine, other than if I change intakes. I’ve just been sidetracked with another car/engine (dads). It may be my winter project.
