hi,
i am building a 302 stroked to a 355 and am deciding on a flywheel and damper.
i have a 89' block that is going to hook up to a 70' torino toploader but going in a 65 falcon sprint.
the motor is going to have 10.6 to 1, victor jr. heads and manifold fully ported, 600' lift hyd roller cam, srp pistons, and eagle forged crank and h beams, msd billet dist., dougs 1 5/8 header, and a 750 demon carb.
what kind of power should i expect
are aluminum flywheels good to run on a street stip motor?
has anybody had good or bad luck with any brand of balancer?

thanx for any imput

Are you going to have the rotating assembly balanced ? if so, you can choose 28oz or 50oz.

Otherwise, go 50oz... I run a Hawks racing billet steel flexplate and a CAT fluid damper balancer. Both are SFI 18.1 approved to 12,500 rpm.

Sounds like your combo will be in the mid 400 hp range (sweet)

On the aluminum flywheel question, I read an article in some 5.0 magazine on the subject. Essentially, the article spoke against using light weight flywheels. My physics is rusty and I cannot explain it or remember all of the article, but it had something to do with the lack of stored energy. I guess that it might rev easier once the car is rolling, but maybee it wouldn't launch as hard? Something to investigate...
