Ian, this thread is about how you did it to help others do it and you have not given any details. So what was the point of the post then?

Holly Crap.... I know that Bad Azz Ride !!!!!!!!!!!
Finally got out to the 1/4 mile track at Rock Falls WI. The weather was perfect with 70 degrees and sunny. This was the first time at this track with these heads. So now I get to move from the 10 sec to the 9 sec forum. The car is a white 1976 feather duster gutted out to be a racer. Here are the details iron block 440 stroked to 508 with a kit from Muscle Motors Flattop pistons from ICON RPM H-beam rods block filled with hard block to just above the freeze plugs ARP main and head studs cheap roller timing chain Hughes Engineering main girdle (that drips oil, be warned) stock oil pump homemade 7 qt deep center sump oil pan with extended pickup and slosh baffle. mopar windage tray Edelbrock Victor intake Edelbrock Super Victor standard port heads with pocket porting only 440 source .650 offset roller rocker arms (they tear up rocker shafts, be warned) Crower standard pushrods Crower MM305 solid flat tappet cam (from Andy Finkbeiner's book) electric water pump electric fan no alternator MSD 6AL 440 Source aluminum water pump housing 440 Source cheap aluminum distributor 4X16 air filter MSD conventional round blaster coil battery in trunk Unaltered out of the box Holley dominator 1050 CFM 3 circuit carb TTI 2 inch chassis headers with 14 inch collector extensions Hughes Performance 9 in torque converter 4500 rpm stall 30 year old Cheetah reverse pattern full manual valve body (no transbrake) Lightened sun shell and upgraded servos from PATC Transmissions Aluminum 3.5 in driveshaft from Dennys Driveshafts with 1350 U joints Strange Dana S60 rearend with 4.10 gears and strange 35 spline axles Wilwood disc brakes solid rotor front and scalloped and drilled rotor in back Mancini aluminum manual master cylinder fiberglass bumpers and hood the rest is all original steel and 10 pt plain steel roll cage Cal Tracs with their split mono leaf springs, set at no preload. cheap fiberglass bucket seat from Summit 30X9 Phoenix slicks 15X8 wheels Replaced torsion bars with Viking coil over shocks from QA1 Stock K member I launch just off idle at about 1900 RPM and seem to be going through the traps at 6,700. I shift at 6,400 but it seems to be falling off in power by then. The car weighs 2,800 or 3,000 with driver and gas. This calculates to about 650 HP. No nitrous or turbo or electronics. I'm pretty happy with this, but you always start thinking about what could be done next. Selling the torqueflite and get a powerglide, would be the next logical step I suppose. Any suggestions? Oh, and the timeslip was my best the yesterday, but I redlighted cause I couldn't see the last amber in the setting sun and tried to leave on the second last light and guessed wrong. The other driver saw my redlight in his mirror and let off. The competition is stiff and if you don't get a good light, you can forget it. The engine was built almost entirely based upon Andy's book How to Build Max Performance Mopar Big Blocks. This book should be required reading for any big block driver. The car and engine and transmission was homebuilt in a two stall garage with only ordinary machine work and the roll cage done by outside help. Certainly not the only way to get into the 9s but this seems to work. View attachment 1714967266 View attachment 1714967271
Nice! Crowed makes some really nice cams. Some of there rollers are crazy. Andy F is here so I hope he reads this. And yes, gooooood book!
