Re: 427 Big Block is going on the Dyno
Hi Andrew and Kevin
Will have Video and Pictures.
I'm looking at 6,000 rpm and 450+ HP and Torque.
Built as a reliable Street engine, that is what I talked to my Engine Builder about what I wanted.
I'll be lucky if it see's a Drag Strip once in 3 years.
I bought the Engine like 12 years ago from a Racer thinking I would have this Monster of an engine.
It wound up needing like everything.
Carb, Intake, Pushrods, Cam, Valve Springs, Roller Rockers, Pistons, Water Pump, Fuel Pump, Bearings, Distributor. - I have over $5,500 into this Engine. A "crate Motor" might have been cheaper !
I will say it has been fun Building it, my Neighbor owns the Engine Shop, I have been "Bartering" my services in exchange for his work I could not do.
I'm building this Engine for my Son to enjoy for the next 45 Years.
