Jason wsnt making a joke about the penut ports.

There are 3 types of heads for a BBC Oval ports Rectangle ports and the small diameter oval ports found on truck motors called penut ports. There were more BBC's used in trucks than the muscle cars so they are the most common.

I've got a never fired BBC sitting in my garage if you are interested. It was built and is kinda waiting for my chevelle but I dont know when my chevell is going to see the light of day [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Too many projects not enough money [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

454 40 OVER. Rebuilt never fired. I built it for my chevelle and then was going to stick it in my pick up so I sold the roller cam and lifters. Some were in the range of 2500 but its pretty complete with carb cam valves. All good stuff. Manely race flow valves arp main and head studs egal rods all balanced comp crane full roller rockers yada yada yada. If its in your price range we can talk about all the specifics and specs and work something out, other wise it will sit in my garage wrapped in plastic till I finish my chevell or hell freezes over [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img].

I dont know??? She should be pretty stout/torquey. I could give you specs if you want.

You would have to run premium gas. Its got a fairly tight torquey cam with 10.25 compression. The cam was picked to work with taller gears and a stock converter. It is balanced with the flexplate(you running an auto?)

Needs heads and a distributor is about the only thing. I would highly recomend geting cast iron merlin oval ports for this motor.

Still interested?
