Question

What do you guy's think about putting a set of the cheap, stock, aluminum 58 cc Vette heads on it and use the .015" rubber coated Felpro 1094 headgaskets to try to keep the CR. up to about 9.3 to 1 or so.

Then add a CC 270 Magnum solid cam, a set of 1.5", four tube, long headers if I can find them at a reasonable price along with an old rebuilt, 600cfm, 1850 Holley and a 300-36 Holley intake.

I know, I'm just a dreaming again????????

D2K say's the little bugger should make close to 366hp at 6,000rpm and 358t at 4500 rpm UNCORKED so the little bugger should rpm right up there just great!! Imho....

pdq67

PS., (I would rather be up around 10 to 1 CR., but it's really hard to get up there since the motors so small without cutting the heads down to about 52 cc's!! 10 to 1 CR. would put the motor up to like 378hp and 367t at the same rpm's theoretically)

In all reality, I figure it would be a good 340+ motor, most likely for no bigger then it is AND run a whole lot like my junk 301 did...

And that was a hoot!!!

I think you might be a little small on the carb for those HP & T numbers. 2X4 600cfm carbs would be a nice nostalgic touch toward that goal.

Yes, a 2x4 setup would be dandy on one of the little buggers like they came with.

Weren't stock, WCFB's only like 400 or maybe 450 cfm anyway??

I do figure my 750cfm, 3310-2 may be fine if I ever did build it and I thought my 600cfm, 1850 felt too weak up top.

A pair of early Carter AFB's would be a step up from the WCFB's. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

(283*6000)/3456= 491cfm, times 90%VE = 442 CFM. My point -- 600 cfm is MORE than adequate for a 283. A 600 cfm carb and a Performer RPM manifold would be the ticket IMO.

I like the cam choice, although it DOES want a hair more compression. static CR calculates to 9.2:1 DCR is 7.5:1. Not bad if you want to run cheap gas in it.

Cutting the heads down to 52cc takes the static CR to 10:1 and the DCR to 8.1:1. Perfect IMO. I wonder how much you'd have to take off to get down to 52cc? .030-.040" maybe?

I like the idea Paul [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

I know, I know !!

I gotta get off my dead a-- and get my big motor in my car before I start screwing around with another motor...

And my 406 is still sitting there too..

I guess I got ta thinking about gas mileage what with the darn stuff it seems being priced higher with every fill-up... Kinda stupid to even consider it when I gotta get to work regardless!!!!!!!!!!

IMHO that calculation should be 283 ci @ 8000rpm

No problem for one of the little buggers b/c I use to take my unbalanced junk 301 above 7,000 rpm all the time.

Just make sure you have good valve springs and a good solid cam, imho...

OK . . . (283*8000)/3456 = 655 * .90 = 589 cfm.

Yeah Paul, get something running . . . shoot I'll send you $20 for gas if that's the only reason. LOL I bet some others would chip in too . . . [img]tongue.gif[/img]
