Especially when you get to build them on the customers dime.

406 CI Small Block, 478HP & 513 ft/lbs of torque. All motor. :biggrin:

Next up is a blown 355 (Stroked from 304) then after that a stroker LS2. The LS2 is already blown but pushing the cylinder walls at 500HP on the dyno so I'm gonna thick wall sleeve it, cube it (408 CI) & decompress it. :)

Sweet looking motor (and I am a Ford man).

Very cool Warren!
What quench did you end up getting? Final CR?

Very cool Warren!
What quench did you end up getting? Final CR?The pistons in this are Diamonds & would be 12.8:1 with the Dash 8 heads but I relieved the valve pockets to suit the 620 Thou lift camshaft so it sits at around 12.4:1 static and runs just dandy on 91 octane pump gas. I will admit the old style chev squish area can be of great use with lower octane fuels. Dynamic compression is around 10.2:1 at idle but builds very quickly up to 4000 rpm then sits fairly flat. I prefer to get the squish distance at around 55 thou when running these engines up around 7500 rpm. :)

I assume by "Quench" you ask what combustion volume? Remember, I'm an Aussie, we use different words. :r Combustion volume is around 68CC. (Cant tell you guys all my secrets can I?) ;)

Woof, woof, pant, pant!!
Smokin engine Warren!

I'm planning on stroking my Jeep 4.0L straight 6 when it finally dies but plan on sticking with a quench and cr to still run 87.
Off an on been perusing junkyards for a 258 crank out of a 4.2.

Of course I'm looking for low end, snap your head back, torque for off-road.

The 355 Stroker has left the building (just like Elvis.....smooth all the way & crooning loudly LOL). Sorry I did not get pics of it as the customer picked it up before I took some but the LS2 is in house & I'll be sure to post up some build shots. :)


Nice to see ya posting Tony. ;)
