I installed the Dart 360's to check P to V and rocker geometry, yes I said 360cc heads will be used as they were one of the original items from the blown alcohol build. These are older castings from 1999, but Ron's Porting in St. Louis did them up very nice. Flow numbers on these are better than the current Pro 1 355 CNC models. I will post them later when I have the sheets in front of me. They are BIG, but I have light car and plan to spray a decent amount, I don't think they will hamper my goals, NA or on the bottle.
I have several cams to chose from that I will mention specs on later, still trying to decide what to use. I am using T&D rockers with a 1.8/1.75 combo which will put me at a 'net' lift of approxiamtely .800". I did say my idea of a street driven engine was little different than some didn't I?
This is just going to be a toy with most of the emphasis placed on performance, believe it or not, with a budget in mind. I didn't have the luxury to go and buy the latest, greatest heads or build a bigger inch engine on a wim, I have had many of these parts for many years now and it is what it is. I have decided to build this 555" 'pump gas' effort engine.
All in all, everything fits pretty well. I need to clearnace the pushrod holes in the heads to run the 7/16" pushrod tubes, set the rocker stand heights after deciding on the camshaft and do some other little massaging but not as bad as I expected.
