I'd rather be a fool who is loyal to his friends than a POS that jumps ship to save face. We were wrong in the end, but nobody can ever call us disloyal. I can live with that.

well... I have not made up my mind...

The Canfields are gone, so the heads will change.  I do have a Sniper NOS setup I could throw on as well...

We shall see

HiPo Block
Woody 347
12:1 compression (as E85 is everywhere around me)
CI Solid Roller
TEA/TFS 205 CNC heads
Super Victor
E85 Big Bad Holley
1 7/8 Kooks headers

Its should be fun...

289 HiPo block right?  Should be a little strong than a Mexican block since they were checked for higher nickel content and have very similar if not the same thick main caps.  Would selling it to the restoration crowd get you close to an entry level big bore block?

You'll certainly have the potential to run 10's.  Sounds like a nice build.  What weight do you hope to get the 'vert down to in the end?  Is 12:1 about the limit with E85 for your application.  I'd try to milk the compression for every last bit with your somewhat heavy car.  Wish they had the stuff everywhere out here.  It basically doesn't exist around here.

well for one i know the 289 has a shorter cylinder skirt as they had a shorter stroke than a 302 so i dont think u want to be shoving a longer stroke than a 289 in a 289 block it would seem to me....

what about a 347 stroker isnt that a longer stroke than the stock 302? see my point
with what your saying here anything larger than stock stroke in a stock block 289 is a Don't ...no

Thanks Rich.

When I go to the races and car shows I always see nice coupes and hatches... I NEVER see really fast convertibles....

Just my way of being different.


You'll certainly have the potential to run 10's.  Sounds like a nice build.  What weight do you hope to get the 'vert down to in the end?  Is 12:1 about the limit with E85 for your application.  I'd try to milk the compression for every last bit with your somewhat heavy car.  Wish they had the stuff everywhere out here.  It basically doesn't exist around here.

I hope to get the car in the 3100-3200 range going down track.  The verts have extra floor pans, all kinds of bracing, a heavy top etc... I am doing what I can.

12:1 is about the NA limit for the summer E85....Its only 1.50 a gallon around here, so it sure beats $5 114 race gas...
