For those following along builds. One thing i knew I had to do was to purchase all the wear/Miscellaneous parts. I guess I just didn't think how much it would add up to. Add this part lists to your budget if your building from the ground up.
I did end up going with the Mahle flat top pistons. I may be sorry, time will tell in the dyno numbers. I can't find a engine dyno locally, just chassis dyno, so we will have to make a guess of where it's at, at the fly wheel.
I stopped by the shop. He had the rotating assembly balanced perfectly to 0. He put a piece of duct tape on the crank to show me how precise the machine is. Spun the crank and the machine was able to pick up the weight of the tape. Pretty neat. My mechanic said lots of machine shops will balance within a tolerance and it's rare to find somebody who will get it to 0 instead of 1 gram or so. I'm going to have him assemble the short block for me as I don't want to mess anything up. From there we can bolt on whats left.
I pulled my stall converter last night as my builder said he can call comp cams and the head guy will get us a custom grind based on my specs. I have a 3000 stall, 3.23 gears, and need to send him tire height. Also since I want to use FiTech EFI, it may be different from somebody going Carb for vacuum purposes. Going with a roller set up.
After that I need to settle in on my Heads (CNCed of some sort) Order up the FiTech, some roller rockers/pushrods and we're done. Can't wait to have my car on the road, and for better or worse I'll post the build sheet for others to model or stay away from after we see the numbers haha. Either way my car made 250HP and 308 tq to the wheels before, so it should be a drastic improvement, and hopefully with EFI, I don't have to tune it every 3 months.
