Re: Hey ya'll

I am parting out my 434...keeping the block and a few other things which will make building my blower motor a little more affordable. So a BBC isn't an option this time around. :) Plus I got some killer headers last year from Mr. Watson. lol I am going to keep my Little M block, and go to a 415 stro...

Advice for chassis dyno...

I'm going to put the Nova on a chassis dyno for the sheer purpose of high RPM tuning (because it's so hard to do around where I live safely on the street) but I also know that I"ve heard some folks say that there are certain techniques to do when running a car with a big converter, and big gears and...

Re: Well, sold the 434 to make room for the blower motor!

Well, the guy who was supposed to buy it started acting real funny on the phone and trying to change the deal..so I told him to forget it. So, the motor is still for sale...I'm back to square one. :)

But, when I do sell it I will put a 8:71 or so on a 421 Stroker motor or some combo close to that.
