    Cubes win every time. The brutal torque from just off idle is intoxicating.

    Help with camshaft choice.

    Have you considered a custom grind? This is my thinking for picking a hydraulic cam find the one you think is right then go 1 bigger in the same catalog. This usually puts you where you want to be power wise. Just my 2 cents worth. I personally would rather have it slightly rowdier than feel...

    RIP Tom Petty

    Cruising in a classic car with all the windows down and Tom Petty tunes turned up it. It is almost impossible to feel unhappy.

    Intake manifold porting

    It happens a bit on mild builds, gasket sealing is the trick as Chuck said. The intake port being smaller than the head port is not a huge issue as it works as a sort of anti reversion. Not the most desirable set up but you can make it work.

    One from way back

    Thanks. Yes it is the first car I built. I stripped it to bare metal and done almost everything my self except the paint. I have never built another car to this extent but finished off another build in the pic as a tuff street car with a 600ish 454 in it and I never really touched the 73 Mach 1...

    One from way back

    This is a 71 Holden Monaro. I started to built as a 17yo and took a few years to finish. That 20+ year ago.

    Open vs Closed chamber head

    If you have 4Vs use them. Especially given what you guys pay for our heads. 2V build will hit your target easy but so will your heads for no extra cost

    A real look at E-85

    Its a pretty horrible experience having a rowdy aspirated streeter on e85 as a daily driver. It is a lot more corrosive than you would think. Kills paint. In really tuff applications you are using near methanol volumes of fuel,the payoff is great torque 14:1 comp and or cool running engines...

    New cam for my 408.

    Can you send them back and get crane's? Jesel and crower do tool steel roller's but probably a bit of overkill unless you are like me,  I can only afford to build these things once I sure as shit can't afford to do it twice. Buy once cry once is how I build my gear

    New cam for my 408.

    Crane also has some really good SFT grinds for clevos. Crane solids like f246 or f268 have been the go to cam for stout streeters here for year's. However the grinds are getting old now and the same goes with bullet to a very small degree. That's why I would be talking to Jones or Lykins first...
