I don't think the car itself has any limit.  The joy in cars for me is really building different combos and tuning them. I had the 349/Novi combo working very very well. This new build is just that...something different.

As far as the motor plate...that is the way I am leaning,  but am unsure what to do. I brought the x trim because it was a possibility that I will run it. I am not positive,  at least right now, that I will even stay with this 410 or with forced induction. I have lots and lots of parts right now...I am currently weighing all my options.

These high ports will end up close to 250 cc intake runner. The manifold ported and modified for a dominator TB.  The transmission is currently a faceplated TKO600.  I have a 4.155 bore Iron Eagle block.

I haven't built a high winding n/a combo in a long time...

long winters are not good for me.

Sounds like a really nice "winter" project.
I'm always interested in small cube, big rpm engines and N/A.
All that much better/fun with boost I'm sure.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

Some intake and head progress photos.

You can really see the port size difference from the Bennet cnc port to the new 240 ish port in the third photo.

349 is out. 410 High Port combo going in. Super Vic intake is being modified to allow a Dominator size throttle body and then it is off to Duane Busch for an all out race port.


Stay tuned...

Sounds great.  I'm planning a similar top end on a 347.  Your intake will be nice when it's done. 

Are we going to see flow numbers for those heads?

Thought I would update this....

On the dyno we had a bunch of issues with idling and getting engine to climb past 4800rpm. We thought it was noise from ignition box. So I switched to coil on plug. When wiring that in I noticed my injector harness was mis-wired from Holley. Pretty sure that is where most of my issues were coming from.

That is a shitty way to find a problem, but man it looks kick ass now.  Eliminating the dizzy is part of going coil on plug?

Yes. I grabbed a Ford replacement for an explorer cam sync. Then I bought an aftermarket cam sync for a 3.8 Ford and swapped shafts for it to work with a 351w oil pump shaft.

So you switched to coil on plug because your fuel injector harness was wired improperly?

He switched to COP to eliminate the possibility of feedback noise from his aftermarket ignition box. During the COP conversion, he found the issues with the injector harness.

Was you still using the Mallory 685? If so, I  wish I had known. I just bought a three step and timing controller.
