It is not anywhere near a daily driver but it runs very nice on the street and gets 10mpg if I cruise under 2200rpm. At the track it has run email@example.com and with a 150 shot of nitrous it went firstname.lastname@example.org running on 94 octane pump gas.
Just providing this info to give you some more ideas.

What do you guys think of the Shafiroff 540 motor? supposedly makes 695 hp[/i]
100hp buffer zone? I'll give a street car 30 maybe 40hp buffer zone, because their not ganna work as well as a strip only car because of gearing / stall / exhaust.
On the Shafiroff, I believe they're really overrated in HP.
A local here got their 695hp 540 in a 69 chevelle, it ran 11.30s @ 118 - it was a total turd. This was with a their 1050 Dominator, good fuel system, good exhaust, 10" & 410s. I've hear this happening with others, so to me the Shafiroff stuff is very overrated. Its always better to build your own, unless you have a good shop workin with you.
Hey Jim, You're just around the corner from Ed now aren't you? Your have head porting friends from the Sam's school probably made your motor a lot faster. If our car weighed in at 3200 lbs. i'd get the modified Edelbrock heads from Curtis Boggs in a heartbeat, i think they should make killer power and the price is right. A local Camaro racer bought a 509 from Reher-Morrison and it has already run high nines @ 136 so they can build what they say but are a little more expensive than some other builders. The C. Bogg head on top of a 555 or bigger should easily make 900+ and might run eights on the motor. I'd get big inches, with the slightly shorter stroke which could be built with a short deck block if one wanted.540Hotrod wrote:Sent you all the info and some Pics.
I'm relocating to Ft Worth, so hopefully we can meet up soon!

The following limitations apply:
Needs to be drivable on the street
Solid rollers are fine
Prefer stock angle heads (BMF, Pro 1's, etc)
9.8" deck block
This will be going in a 3200 lb stock-suspension 91 stang GT.
I want it to go in the 9's on horsepower and be able to get sprayed into the 8's on good gas. This will see probably 50-100 street miles a week and the track maybe 4-5 times a year.
Budget is 12k and that includes distributor/carb setup.
My initial thoughts are 582 inches (4.600 x 4.375), dart big m or merlin 4 block, BMF 350 cc heads, eagle rods/crank, and some pistons (JE, Ross, whoever). Shooting for 10.5-10.75:1 compression.
I am thinking I will need 700-750 at the crank to go 9's at 3200 lbs with a glide and a ford 9" making up the rest of the drivetrain.
What would you do given the budget and other limitations?
