    454 ci sbf na for now

    I had alot of issues in the last few years with engines. I decided if im going to build another one its going to be a big one. I went all out on the block. I got a dart aluminum block. I end up getting a good price on it but it was still hard to hand the money over it. A few months later i end up getting a set of 240cc highports. Got a good deal on them too. I had to drive about two hours to get them but i saved about $700 on them. My last thing i bought for now is a crank ( callies magnum xl ) rods ( callies compstar ). So far thats all i got. More is definitely coming soon.

    Going to be a runner for sure. Can't wait to see it in action. Maybe it will be enough to prompt your brother to put the giggle gas on his setup since it looks like your build will have the cubes to drive around him.

    It will be a big carb. Probably a dominater. It will be 15 to 1 or 16 to 1 so it will be on alcohol.

    Chad Thats just what it came out to be with the size of the crank and rods. Brian i think me and the gould mustang probably be together for awhile. I love the way it looks and think a few more grand in her i should be able to get it down the track fast and safe.

    Well got a little side ways on the build. I decided to get rid of the 240cc high ports and thinking about buying me a set of victor glidden 2 heads. Hopefully i can pick up a few more ponys to hang with the big boys.

    Have to set a goal for what you are wanting out of it and continue down that path. If you keep changing your mind throughout the build, you'll keep chasing your tail and take forever. The 240 high ports are a nasty head. For an all motor car, Im sure the Glidden Victors will be a far better head. Keep plugin away at it. You'll get there eventually.

    Im anxious to see this one back out soon! Always liked that car.

    The engine should be done in the next couple months. Or Atleast the money part will be done. Then it will be up to the engine builder. I've been excited every step of the way. Plus the victer glidden 2 flows over a 100 more cfm than the highports. Plus a 11 degree head to a 20 degree head.

    Yeah they are a nasty head. I picked up a set for my buddy a while back and they are impressive for sure. Those and a big Procharger would be perfect for me!

    This is just getting out of hand, get it done already. Haha
    With that said, we now have a fresh set of TFS 240 cc Highports for sale, just saying if anyone may be interested?
