whats up everybody! names chris, im 24 years old, enlisted in the marine corps and currently stationed at camp pendleton ca. im orginally from a small town in south ga called fitzgerald.

my vehicles:
93 notchback mustang: 351w bored and stroked to 408ci with 76mm turbonetics turbo. (558hp 636tq at 9psi on 91 pump gas)

91 hatch gt mustang: 306ci with trick flow heads and intake with anderson ford n-41 cam (my daily driver)

2005 f-250 6.0: stage 2 turbo with bigger injectors and other go fast parts.

just built the 408 in the 93 mustang and been taking it to the local drag strip and loving it. im still learning everything as far as motors go and i have a good friend that helped me build it and that im learning from. we had a guy down from his house that has had a big block foxbody mustang sitting in his yard under a cover for like 4 years that we have been trying to get him to take it to the track with us. well we finally went and check it out and come to find out he was having problems with the ignition switch and we offered to fix it for him. so we took it back down the street to my friends house and fixed it. we fired it up and man, im hooked on big blocks forever! i dont know much about the motor but i know it has had me wanting it ever since we took it down the road for a ride Very Happy

so thats how i was introduced to big blocks and now im on the hunt for a block and all the info i can get to start building one in the near future. im looking to build a straight drag car to do nothing but drag race with. im wanting around a 750hp n/a high compression motor. ive read that stock 2 bolt main blocks will be capable of that kind of power, please correct me if ive read wrong, and is there any specific block i should be looking for as far as a certain year or anything? also while searching for a block i came across some Edelbrock 60679 heads for really cheap and where wondering if they would be good enough to support the hp numbers i want, any info would be greatly appreciated!

thanks guys and im looking forward to being a part of the Big Block Boys! cheers

I've been on the same dyno, its a pretty damn fair one, and fair to say its not happy.

OP the Edelbrock heads are as good as stock CJ castings but for the same $$ their is alot better stuff avalaible, like the SCJ's and P-51 they are more capible.

You goal of 750 is very obtainable with most any aftermarket aluminum heads, with a couple of chinese exceptions..... Laughing

Mike Phillip's DTS dyno, (Automotive Machine and Performance), is certainly NOT generous; not stingy either ... just about right.

Nothing special to look for, pretty much any block will do what your asking.

Common Casting Numbers a D1VE and D9TE they work fine.

Spend the money on high quality machine work and good parts to go in the block. Plus a good safe tune is the key to making it live.

With a fill and good tune 750-800ish reliably, they have been pust alot farther with good results, but they do occasionaly break. If your building a big HP engine or are going to look for more later a Ford Racing A460 or and Eliminator block would be a wise investment.
