The 712 is in the car

Post  Frank Merkl on October 14th 2016, 12:59 am

Because were heading the the super street car nationals in Las Vegas Nov 17-20 , I decided we needed a little more power than our 632 C headed more was giving us as we've been beating on the door of a 6 second pass but just haven't been able to get there ! so we reheaded my 712 cid A441 boss headed motor with my best set of C460 heads , Monte Smith from NOS designed a cam for it , my son built some sweet fender exit headers , a few spec's A96 11.200 deck aluminum block bored to 4.625" , Bryant 5.300" stroke billet crank, Venolia 7.190" long aluminum rods , Venolia flat top pistons with valve reliefs for both the A441 heads and C460 heads , CR 13.86 measured to the top ring land . peterson 5 stage dry sump pump , Steff's dry sump pan , 3 sets of NOS nitrous nozzles with the option of a 4th kit installed but not hooked up , and a partridge in a pear tree!!! and P.S. for Las Vegas were taking off the big tires (33 x 16.5x 15's ) and putting on 10.5W's  . and were heading to the chassis dyno saturday to dyno it with all the kits firing and Yes there will be video!!!
