Sounds good Scott
Right ON, Scott! You drug her out again!
Thanks for the compliments, guys.
Once it warms up, I plan on doing some fluid changes and getting it to the track. It's a much longer drive back to the dyno, but I do plan to dyno it at some point.
I also purchased an adjustable modulator valve. We'll see what that does.
Sounds like a good healthy small block
Agreed. The only thing that stays on my mind is the fact that I did start grinding away at one of the shoulders of the connecting rods to gain clearance for the came lobe to clear the 5.7 rods. I stopped halfway through and just ordered a small base circle cam and longer pushrods. The cost of a small base circle cam and longer pushrods was worth way more than dealing with grinding, checking clearance, grinding, checking clearance. I just did not feel comfy grinding on the top of the rod bolt/shoulder.
I made about 5 passes at the track the other week. Runs 3, 4, and 5 were the same ET with trap speed varying around 0.5 mph. I posted my best trap below. Timing is conservative. A/F seemed to hang around the mid 12s and would ramp up to a 12.8 right before a gear change. I left the trans in D. I only put it in 2nd for the burnout. TH350 is changing out of 1st and 2nd around 4k, so a Transgo shift kit seems in order. I still on the fence out using line lock to heat the tires more. I feel I got them hot enough by power braking.
Welcome back man
I know. I know. It's been a second. My car sits in the carport untouched for months at a time. All I do lately is search and read on the forum here.
