Re: SBF CLEVELAND goes 1050hp!!

I guess you missed the part where us BACKYARD engine builders did the 356 inch Cleveland that made 798Hp with OEM block and FORD cast 4bbl OEM heads! Back in the early '90's. Like I said, it's making power, but out of 465 inch I would almost expect that out of any serious engine today. Maybe I'm ju...

Re: Cylinder head CFM to HP?

The engine I’ve been working on is at 1.97/hp per cfm. Trying to kick over the 2.0 as we speak. Heads flowed in 385-400 range.

Re: SBF CLEVELAND goes 1050hp!!

At 465 cubic inches it certainly is not a small block capacity. I can't see this many cubes fitting in an actual Cleveland block. I think I would call this a full aftermarket race engine with canted valves. I doubt there is anything from a Cleveland on it. Good effort all the same. Allan. Is a 351m...

Re: Cleveland heads

Thats what we typically do run the exh plate only. Ive built some of these to run in mud trucks. The exh plate will give you big gains in truck for whatever reason. The one i did we never Dynoed but it picked up significantly in mud pits. We have seen the same drop as you with plates on bench. I oft...

Re: Main Bearing Clearances / Tolerance

When dealing with situations where our bearing clearances are a half to a full thou looser than target, we have calico coat the bearings and problem is solved. We always use coated bearings on all race engines and the performance of the coating is excellent. Not bad money and turnaround is quick. N...

Re: BBC 540 build!!

It sure is a difference. I bought a small block car that ran 6.95-7 in 1/8 from Columbus ohio. When we brought here best we could get was in 7.45-7.5 range. Thought I bought a dud for awhile.
