Sweet, remind me again of the motor, cam etc............

408, 9.5:1 CR, home flow improved 4V closed chamber heads (verified on flow bench), solid flat tappet cam .562/.580, 238/248 @.050, 110 LSA, installed at 106 ICL, Blue Thunder dual plane intake, Holley 750 HP. The cam is a bit radical but it does what I want it to do.

The radical is mainly in reference to the fact that the cam yields 12.5 in. of hg at idle. Not really enough to properly run the brake booster. I'll probably hide a vacuum pump and reservoir to take care of that. The dyno numbers say the Blue Thunder works very well, so do I. The torque is 450 or above from 3000 to 6000 RPM, peak is 496 (standard correction). That was with a 1 inch spacer and dyno headers, neither of which I could use in the car (no spacer, Hooker Comps). Only very minor clean up required before installation. I think it is a very good piece and worth the money. Your engine should be an absolute MONSTER!

I hope so, if it sounds as good as yours I will be tickled. I went with manual brakes because of the same issues.

Nope, vacuum is vacuum. I may have inadvertently mislead you. It's 11.5-12 in neutral, 8.5-9 in gear. It seems a vacuum pump and reservoir are in my future. A 466 in one of these cars has to be a hoot. Chuck

Chuck,

 

Thank you for the overload to our senses. Car sounds awesome and you know my thoughts on every other aspect of it already. I guess now that your done buying parts the budget will go towards buying tires. Keep enjoying it!

Thanks. Auto transmission and I don't have the best history so I'm taking it easy until I get a few more miles on it. What percentage of gross power is represented by 1/3 throttle I can't say other than it is not all of it.
