Re: Anyone have any experiences with Shafiroff crate engines?
I have been very satisfied so far. I'm still tuning (mostly suspension), and the 3600# car (with driver) has run a best of 10.55 so far. I just got Draglites, and a bunch of suspension upgrades, as well as new 4.10's. I am hoping to shave off another .2.
My only complaint about the engine would be the carb. I went with the 950HP since this is a street car. Since then, I found out that the 950HP only flows 830 CFM, way too small for a 540 spinning at 6800. I need to upgrade to the 1000HP, but I have other things that are more important right now to drop $800 on.
The other thing to be aware of, between the 950HP and the Vic Jr, I had NO vacuum ports. I needed vacuum for the brakes, distributor, and trans, so I had to replace the baseplate on the carb.
To make a long story short, I would recommend Shafiroff to anyone. First rate stuff (for the money).
