Re: F-I-N-A-L-L-Y !!
ratlover. Compression is 10.15:1 with my 64cc heads (with polished combustionchambers). My cam, Comp Cams Xtreme Energy 274 Specs: 230/236 @.050 .487"/.490", wants 9.5-10:1 compression and to top it all off, we got leaded 98 octane gasoline at the pump in Sweden (not sure if octanerating is the same over here as in the U.S of A)[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. Desktop Dyno tells me about 405 hp @ 5500rpm and over 400 ft.lbs from 2000 all the way to 5500 rpm. I think itīll be ok[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. If not, and I need more torque right off idle, I have a backup 258 adv.dur cam and first hand on a set of 76cc 993 casting heads. As far as colour goes, VHT spraycans just got banned in Sweden (lack of safety information bla bla), so I canīt find true Chevy orange....and plain red looks boring imho. Thinking of going with aluminum (i.e silver) paint on the block and heads with black valvecovers and oilpan.
MIKE.S!! WHERE THE H3LL HAVE YOU BEEN ??[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Blazer is primed twice and waiting for final coat of paint. I primed it once early spring and sanded it all off because I found a better primer[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. Iīm taking my time. Itīs not like Iīm gonne get myself involved in a project like this again anytime soon.....well, I want to build a blower-engine. A 6" rod, rollercam, steel everything, splayed cap 377 with Canfield or AFR heads but thatīs it![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] D*mn, I lied[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] I want to build a 434 smallblock too!
