My Story is
My current set up is
1965 440 block
.040 oversize pistons (not sure on Brand), bores still in Very Good condition.
Pistons .100 down the Hole,
.050 though head gasket
Approx 8.3:1 Comp Ratio
Adjustable Valve Gear
MSD pro Billit distributor
1 3/4 inch Hooker Pro comp (i think)
Twin 3 inch mandrel bend exhaust with x pipe
Factory 1970 Cast iron six pack intake and factory carbs
Hemi spline A833 4 speed with a centreforce clutch.
So now i want to get a bit more power out of it.
My plan is Edelbrock performer RPM Heads 75cc and .020 though gasket to bump up comp to about 9.6:1 ?
? read good reports on Lunati ?? Suggestions would be great !!
I really don't want to rebuild the bottom end if not required. I would love to change pistons to up the comp but i want to keep costs and upgrade time to a minimum if possible.
Will i see much benifit from the above mods or am i wasting my time. And advice on camshaft selection will be Awesome as from from what i can gather Breathing is the Key with these engines.
My goal is 500 to 550 Hp.
