A head street build

Post  litshoot on February 20th 2019, 3:12 pm

Im looking for a solid street motor and have a set of old a heads laying around, how would they be, and is it possible to set them up in 4.4, or 4.44 bore, 3.59 stroke, flat tops to get roughly 10,5 compression to run 92, hydraulic flat tappet cam. theyre 2.3 intake 1.88 exhaust, 63cc chambers. Would this work, what kind of power could be expected with tfs tunnel ram, single dominator.

Youre really miss matching everything

What you’ve described would run better with a set of ported Dove-c castings and an old fashioned Weiand TR and a set of 750’s

Short stroke, for no real good reason, I have a 429 crank and a 460 crank, but 429 looks a little better condition.

I like it.
My setup is close. Offset ground 3.59 crank to 3.71 with iron A460 heads. (EX514). TFS Tunnel Ram and carbs???
I have Mighty Demon 850s and King Demon 1095s.
The heads are at the shop for bowl blending and port work. Should be ready in a few weeks.
Just enough OVERKILL!

just realized my mistake in the begging, not a tunnel ram, a460 single plane with single dominator flange. my fault. also its what I have, its matched set to each other.


strongweapon, no kill like overkill
