375 HP @ 5619 RPMs....418 ft/lbs of TORQUE ! Shorty Headers !
Heres the best part, The max torque starts at 3100 RPM and stays flat right up to 4300 RPM !! One hell of a midrange. Torque at max hp is 353 ft/lbs At 2100 RPM, the torque is 373 ft/lbs. Although the Clone Vert won't be a dragster, with a 3.70 rear, I should have some fun light to light. Come on ricer boys, suck my exhaust !
Here's the specs from memory as I left my engine file at work.
VERY low milage 69 block. Had to go .30 over since it sat so long. Keith Black hyper-you-know-what 9.5-1 pistons. Bottom end is stock, tolerances checked, bearings replaced, lube holes chamfered (sp?) etc.
Comp Cams 2.24/2.24 110 lobe seperation (hydraulic)
Brodix SP 5.0 Heads 1.94 / 1.60 These heads flow better than most competitors 2.02 heads. www.fordmuscle.com
search Head to Head.
Ford Racing roller rockers
670CFM Holley Streat Avenger
Hedman 88650 shorty 351 swap headers from JET HOT coated inside and out. 3yr warranty on "blueing" and lifetime on rust through. With an almost 2 inch drop of the Global West front suspension and the AOD trannie, I need the clearance.
Canton road racing "T" style oil pan. Melling hduty oil pump.
MSD 6ALbox, Billet Dizzy and MSD Coil.
Edelbrock aluminum waterpump.
March billet pulleys
I've got 5500 bucks in this motor. Same as the cost for a Ford Racing Crate motor. Difference? Ford vs Marollo/Snakoil
385hp vs 375hp
377 ftlbs @ 4500 RPM vs 418 ftlbs @ 3100 RPM
My cost includes the MSD stuff, headers, the carb, braided/anodized fuel line, air cleaner and plug wires.
If I didn't get the block for free (long story-don't ask), it would probably be a toss-up on which way to go.
All the work was done by Mickey Marollo Racing Engines in Elmira, NY. He's a respected builder of engines for Modifieds and race boats.
