Well you guys were back from the dyno and to say im happy is an understatement!!!!!!!! We got the engine up on the dyno, hooked everything up with really no problems.....Ran some fuel to the carb and she was running.......We started the session with a 950 carb and a 1" Super Sucker and 34 dagrees of timing........C114 gas and let her eat.....First pull to 5000 just to check things out made a hair over 445HP....We thought whew......shes climbing pretty fast.....should be fun......So we pulled her to 7500,still climbing.......man that baby 358 SINGS!!! So we ended up @ 751HP @ 8400RPM........YA BABY!!!! moved timing to 37 dagrees and lost 20HP......dropped it to 31,lost again.........34 was best! Spaced the carb up 1",then another for a total of 3",both were loses.........So we switched to a 1050 Dom.......She struggled to make 740, it was down that 10HP from 5500-8000 all the way threw........I will post some pics and a dyno sheet if I figure out how or somebody can for me,I can send the digital pics if ya can help post them on here..........So it looks like QTRHORS is the winner with his guess of 715 @7800.........Thats worth a BIGS $50 credit at the shop towards anything.........Thanx alot, Jesse @ BIGS

Thank you...thank you....thank you very much


omg that thing is an animal...congrats Jesse

all I can say is Robert Yates is da man

I was gonna guess more considering what a Ford nascar engine can do with a 750 carb limit....but I chickened out


Thanks for the "gift"...very generous of you to offer that to the list. Its always good to see that there are people in the biz world like you


congrats again Jesse
