Re: Block choice for SB2 heads

Do those use the same block as the Sb2.2? If so, GM is supposed to have a specific block and it's been said Dart can set a block up with correct lifter bores, also. You may want to read through this thread if they are the same. It covers this subject somewhat.

Re: CNC Heads?

Everybody talks about CNC heads, what usually I ask is, who did the original porting you are coping, or did you just tell the computer program to make them a certain percent larger? Just wondering why don't the sellers of CNC porting advertise who did the work the program is copying? Seems they mig...

Re: Re-drilling 72 degree angle sbc heads.

I thought the Vortec heads were so thin on the intake face that drilling for the old 6-bolt pattern didn't leave enough material to have strength for the threads. It may be for the V8 heads. I have no idea about those. I know I never heard/read any complaints about that specific issue with the V6 h...

Re: Re-drilling 72 degree angle sbc heads.

re-drilling vortec heads for an earlier intake would probably be a popular move. It was popular among the GM turbo 4.3L V6 crowd for quite a while. Since they have a specific intake, they usually redrilled the heads to fit the modified pre-vortec intake. You can see an example of what's done to the...

Re: 180° cranks

Hopefully they didn't do that ^V^V crank layout that Ford did. I have yet to hear a good explanation for it. That engine sounds nothing like Fords attempt and everything like a Ferrari flat plane crank engine. To me that says they did it the right way. But I'm no sound engineer so I could be comple...

Re: bbc oil pump on sbc iron eagle 434

Here's another ST thread that may be of interest about the same thing. They even go over the car craft oil pump article with results from the missing charts, I believe. I've seen that 540RAT guy all over different forums talking about oil back in the day but I don't know anything about the guy nor t...

Re: 4130 chromoly tube

I have for years manufactured shotgun chokes for competition card shooting (turkey shoots). Recently around six months ago or so I was getting calls about several of my chokes splitting length wise (cracking). Others in this arena have had same issues. There is a builder in Ohio who is spear headin...

Re: bbc oil pump on sbc iron eagle 434

This doesn't have actual #'s but they rate the pumps, sbc & bbc, by a few different data points.

Re: Did Penn Grade 1 change their formula?

Contact them and ask. That's the only way you'll get facts. Otherwise it's speculation and rumor and that's it. I've done it with plenty of companies. Last one was Callies. Somebody claimed they had been sold and were making stuff overseas now or some bs. Nope. Still owned by the founder with no pl...

Re: Race Engine Challenge 2019

I may not win the competition but I am sure I will win over the confidence of a few open minded engine builders who will see the benefits of a motor build using all easy to get 'off the shelf' parts and get the near perfect combo and have the build done with the least shop time involved.
