It's not a secret for M&M members, it's just a lot of typing again.

He could tell us, but then he'd have to kill us. C'mon now, asking a professional racer his engine combination is like asking a street racer how fast he really runs the 1/4.

Well OK then. Since I can't find it in the archives I'll type it in two parts. Short block is blue printed via precision machining to factory specs.
For starters it is a FRPP restricted and bushed block with Venolia 9 to 1 pistons. It is bored .070 and uses a very special ring combination. The rods are Crower sportsman ultralites and the crank is a FoMoCo 1x cut .040 and .030 and offset ground. All machine work to the crank is done by Accu-Crank. Everything is zero balanced. Bearings are FM "R" series. Royal Purple is moved around by Melling and stored in a Canton front sump "T" pan. Balancer is a BHJ and valve timing is kept in place by Danny Bee. Cam is a Comp **mm rollerized roller that is somewhere over .476 lobe lift. Lifters are Crane Pro Series. Rear main seal and pan gasket is Fel-Pro. Top half tomorrow.

ALEX, THANX. Could you explain the valves and why you use longer ones. RAY

Longer valves are generally used to make room for larger (and taller) valvesprings. 9000+ rpm generally requires some serious pressure to keep the valves under control.

OK top half. Heads are C5AE-B FoMoCo original castings ported by Jim Kuntz of Kuntz & Co. Per NHRA and IHRA specs combustion chambers are stock 53 cc and untouched. Intake ports are 155 cc volume and exhausts are 49 cc. Valves are stock diameter 1.46 and 1.78, but .200 long. They are custom stem and made by Victory Valves. They are longer to allow room for better valve springs capable of keeping them open at over 9000 RPM.
Springs are Manley Pacaloy and are set up with 250+ lbs. on the seat. Retainers are Titanium and are also Manley as are the keepers. Very trick Nascar parts that are scalloped and have oiling holes.
Head gaskets are Victor Reinz, intakes are Fel-Pro, and no header gaskets are used.
Rocker arms are a lightweight T&D shaft system that are not stock ratio. Push rods are lightweight Smith Bros.
Headers are custom made 3 step units. Intake is a highly modified Victor Jr. that has not water running through it. We built a Super Victor and it makes more power. Unfortunatly it does not fit under the stock required hood.
Carb is a 480 CFM 1.08 4100 series Autolite prepped and modified by me.
That's about it. It produces near *** HP on VP C-11 fuel @ 8600 RPM with 1 3/4 dyno headers and no pan evacuation system installed.

Jim, we have been torn down so many times that most of our secrets have probably been "shared" already anyway.
Two of the keys are still the intake manifold and the camshaft. Fortunatly those specs are still somewhat closely guarded by Tony and I.

Alex,

Blair Patrick's 68 Stang 428 cobra jet SS/EA is a work of art. We have been thrashing on this unit for about 3 weeks to get ready for Gainesville this weekend. Kuntz does a good job on the heads. Ever used Morgan? I have learned a lot about SS engine the past couple of months and realize I could never afford to race that class. Step headers, head work, intake work......worth more than my car and 514 together......

Do you have problems with shearing the cam/sprocket pin with all that seat pressure?

We have sheared two of those running 250 seat pressure with rollers. That was ones that came in aftermarket cams. When those pins break, it does a ton of damage.

Yes Russ, it is a very expensive proposition to race competitively in NHRA/IHRA Superstock. Blair and company are great people with a very nice 68 CJ car. Wish them the best of luck from Tony and I.
DV, I have had only one pin problem ever and that was years and years ago. I do double pin my SS motors just for insurance though.
