New to the big block world

Post  foxbody82 on August 9th 2012, 8:58 pm

Looking to build a stout enough big block to go in a 3000 foxbody street car and run some mid-high nines. I am starting from scratch and have no idea where to start. Anyone out there have some good ideas for where to start, ci, heads, intake, etc... It will be a stock block build. The chassis is all team z, and the only goals are to run nines and keep it fairly mild so it can stay on the street. Also do the jegs swap kits work out very well? Any and all info is greatly appreciated.

There is a whole bunch of information of all kinds of builds in the "Proven Builds" section.
I suggest you sit down and do a lot of reading there and then you can get more specific about what you intend to do.

You can do what you want several different ways. One that comes to mind that I did was a 472 flat top, stock crank, H beam rods, out of the box Edelbrock closed chamber performer rpm's solid roller 265 272 on a 108 .740 lift 3000 lb 4:30 gear 28x10.5 ET streets ladder bars.

Unported victor dom intake, 1050 hp. 6.20 1/8th mile that would have put it in the 9.60,s 1/4 mile.

You can do this with out of the box, TFS Streets, A 429 motorsports, Blue Thunder,s and FMS SCJ,s also. (BUT NOT WITH PRO COMPS NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU PORT THEM)

Easy build.........

Thanks for all the responses guys, I have a great set of afr 225's i bought for my 408 I planned on building, but I figure if I sold them I would have close to enough for a set of really nice heads I could grow into. Mine will stay stock suspension, but other than that, the 472 build sounds great and not to wild for the street. Any opinions are welcome, but would ya'll recommend a smaller cubic inch base or something closer to the 532 or 557 range? Like I said I am completely new to the big block stuff and don't even know where to start, so I'll be taking in as much info as possible.

The bigger you go the more streetable it will be with the same hp rating.

Its all about what you want. You can do it easily with the 472, a stroker will do it too just more money.
