    Have been officially commissioned to build a supercharged big block Mopar looking for BIG power.

    Rundown:
    440 block 4.350" x 3.850" = 458 cubes
    7.1 H beams
    Icon piston
    Custom SFT camshaft
    Trickflow 240 heads
    Twin Torqstorm SC' and a blow thru AED carb 750 I think

    This should be a very interesting and fun engine to build. J.Rob

            Seems like it would be pretty easy to kill the block.

            Fun until it does though.

              This has been discussed at length and it is now out of my hands. My job is to make it last as long as I can. There is a very real rhyme and reason for everything... J.Rob

              I got on here today to see if anyone had heard of the torqstorm system before. I talked to them at the good guys last summer.

              How's the build coming along?

              Ramm, are you going to grind a factory crank to get the 3.85 stroke?
              i have one that's already been ground on the mains for a low deck, think the rod journals (already .020 under) need to be ground to clean up. Was thinking about making it 3.85 or 3.88" stroke, using a 6.8" rod and the Ross 1.238 CH piston. that keeps me from running the excess rod side clearance.

              Yes a 3.750 crank can be ground to a 3.915" with a BBC 2.200" rod journal. Good luck with your build. J.Rob

              Just received the pistons--Damn this virus has given everyone the excuse of being slow. Ordered these back in April. J.Rob

                Good luck fitting that in the engine bay. Looking forward to seeing a picture of it done and installed.

                  DO you plan on any type of block fill? Damned if I wouldn't do a half fill. That'll sure help, IMO.
