418W build up - RPM or Vic Jr.
I have just joined the forum because of all of the good info I've seen on here. My 418W (actually, 424W since it is .060 over) is being assembled this week for my 67 Mustang coupe, and I'd like to get some feedback from you guys who have built strokers before. Here's the essential parts list:
Legends 9000 sieries 4.10 crank,
H-Beam 6.2 rods
Keith Black (.060 over) #724 forged pistons (10.1:1 comp.)
Total Seal Max-seal rings
Pro Comp aluminum heads 190cc intake runners and 2.02/ 1.60 valves moderately ported and polished (60cc chambers)
Comp Cams 35-426-8 retro-fit hyd. roller 236/242 @.050 555/576 lift on 110 lobe
BG Holley 850cfm carb
2.5" exhaust with X-pipe and Magnaflows
I have a Professional Products Hurricane (Victor Jr. type) intake and I have an Edelbrock Air-Gap RPM. The question is, which one to use? Either one would be port-matched to the heads. My goal is to get 500 streetable horsepower! The engine will be dyno'ed next week.
Built C-4 Trans w/ 2800 stall
3.55 posi rear
Four wheel power disk brakes
Front and rear sway bars, sub-frame connectors, Competition Engineering over-axle traction bars, Koni shocks, 1" lowering springs, 1 pc. export brace, Monte Carlo bar, etc.
The car will be used as a weekend street car.
The balancing and machine work is all done and ready to begin assembly this weekend. Any good feedback at this point is very much appreciated!
