i'll most likely limit myself to 7-8 psi until i learn a little more about running under boost. using the turbo V6 engine as a baseline for hp estimates i would think it's safe to say that a 300 would make an easy 500 hp with that setup (remember the 231 is basically a 300 engine minus two cylinders( and a larger crank dimensions). the new TA heads are supposed to flow as good as or better than the aluminum V6 heads they currently produce.

Rob, I hope the TA heads work as well as projected(300 cfm@28")? My Home ported ,Stg II flowed 294 @ .7 lift. I believe Jim Blackwood has a similar build ,with 300" heads and a Ford, "Lightning" blower. Good Luck, roverman.

What are you saying? We should move to a different firing order? What are the implications here…

The Buick boys are doing this and I don't remember the details but I do recall it is a trade off of induction against engine harmonics. The guys who are doing it are 350 builders IIRC and they already have a different intake configuration, so how it would work out for the BOPR I'm not sure. My personal impression is it's along the lines of the flat crank four cylinders. Might be good for racing but probably not that productive on a street engine.

Tony, tough question. I think I would start by weighing stock pistons/rods. My forged, +.03 os. 305 sbc pistons/pins are approx 447 grams before re-notching for stg.1, V6 valves. 1k hp., 4340x6",lg jrnl. rods are 599 before narrowing.Isn't the 4.6L crank internal? Anybody? If so, It might may a better option, regarding flywheels, fillet potential during off-set grinding, 1 pc. rear seal and ready for crank driven oil pump. roverman.

351 Ford and 302 roller HO firing order was changed for the same reasons. Helps if you have large diameter mains or turn high RPMs.Scheinder cams E-mailed back and said cast iron was wrong material for even hydraulic rollers,even if hardened. The factory cast cams are steel alloy. I imagine Comp cams or other aftermarket retro roller cams are also, thus more expensive blanks. I guess there is no cheaper way to do it. Iv'e looked at chilled Iron(when they pour molten steel into a cold mold) and cryogenic treating. By the time you do all the custom stuff you would be better off ordering an expensive steel billet. I would still like a cast cam gear on it though.

1961 on had cast gear. I never suggested anything other than #8620 for cam,(publicly). For variable cam drive, I believe crank trigger ign. will prove best. I think volume price of $250 for custom 8620 billet will be tough to beat. I'll be using oem. V6 roller lifters in the "Huff" as mechanicals. Should be good durability test.roverman.

Jim, I got busy with my 54 F100. I recently got the engine back in it and I've been thrashing the fuel system to fix a problem there. I think I got that fixed today. Next will be the leaking heater core. Then get the windshield wipers working, then ...

I've been scanning the local Craigslist, looking for a Buick 3.8 that being parted out. Nothing so far. But I did find some 16" wheels for the F100. :)

Art, Nah, I'm going to splice two V6's to make a better V8. 440/F100? Welcome to the Dark Side. Nice choice of bodies, but I'll bet you had to box the frame. I've got the parts to swap in a Cordoba front suspension, but I'll probably stick to a Ford for power.

Box the frame? I'll "wrestle" with that later. It's comming back as a 40 yr.backburner.Eventually to get a "W16",(Rover of-course), in the bed. I was force-fed Mopars as a kid, hence the B-block.

Art, why not one of those Chrysler tank motors? I heard they made pretty good power..

Yeah, but weren't those something like 3 or 4 Mopar V8's all jammed together or something? Bet that'd have enough tork for yer truck.
