115% VE at that compression is awesome!

In a decent bracket car what should this engine run at 3400 lbs, glide, 4.56 ?

cough cough. Really Straub? Is that 555 suppose to impress us or are you just pimping more Morel parts to help your bottom line? I figure you must be a paid poster.

10 more ci, 1.5 more points of compression, bigger cam, better heads, AV gas fuel mix and a claimed "900 hp at 6700" with no dyno sheet... So 6 horse power?
Although you were thorough on the product names, I will give you that.

The build was for a customer that had specific goals and this was the result. Near 900 hp at low rpm and has to live on pump 93 gas and live on the street. If it was an all out drag car a few points more compression, bigger cam and valve in the head, 900-1000 likely would have been made.

Nice job. Not that you really care what I think I am sure, I don't always think everything is happy. That looks like reasonable power for the components used. Unless the cam is like 240 at .050. Victor 24's or 26's? The new style Eddy tunnel ram?

Where is the question in OP post ??????. 99.9% of the threads on this forum are asking a question. Not serving an agenda and that is the point. Straub is selling his wares and thumping his chest. I find it annoying as this forum IS NOT for selling Straub cams, Morel lifters and Foxwell heads. He has been warned on the other forums for posts of this nature. For the parts used his motor is nothing special for a solid roller 555 with 2x750 carbs and ported heads just like the one I built for my customer. OP post belongs in the show and tell section.

.
Actually my build is a little low on hp for a 566cuin A460 headed motor and I'm sure if I lost a point of compression and put on a tunnel ram with 2 750 it would be a wash.
Although you were thorough on the product names, I will give you that
I provided all the important part numbers and techniques used that so anyone could copy the engine and get the same results. Did OP?????

Rick,
If you will loosen the intake lash sir by around .004" and tighten the exhaust lash by .010" you will pick up at least another 40HP sir. For more increase I would advance the cam another 4 degrees to supply that demand on the heads.

At the end of the day the customer is happy. Cam is in the 260 duration range and a little over .700 lift net. Heads on the engine are 79555.

Chris, I really would like your best guess at this. I am working on a similar project but doubt mine will make this kind of power. I know that how fast the car runs "depends" on a lot of things but lets just make say the car will hook and go down the track, not as effeciently as a well sorted out super stocker, but just a good working bracket car.
