Chad, the intake looked nice! Based on what I've heard today the sheet intake is no slouch....as expected.

Re: 450 SBC Preliminary Dyno Results

Thanks guys!

Total of 24 pulls in 2 days.

Chased my tail most of the day trying to tune the homemade 1250 HP(single) on the sheetmetal intake with a tee pee top.

Guess there is something to this tuned intake runner length stuff

The sheetmetal intake is within .25" of the 4th harmonic for this combination.

Best pull was 915 HP @ 7400 RPM and 713.8 lb-ft @ 6000 RPM

That was with Royal Purple XPR 5W20 oil and Q16.

With the break in Joe Gibbs oil it was 911 HP / 702 lb-ft

Didn't get any video, but "pissed off small block" describes it pretty darn well.

Didn't get test the 2x1000 HP combination for several reason. We'll have to save that for another day.

All in all I'm very pleased with the results.

Mike,

I did consider it, but I already had a good set of Isky lifters I was planning to re-use. Ended up having to go to a different lifter due to an interference issue. The next iteration will have bushed lifter bores and a .904 lifter. Possibly a 55mm cam tunnel.

I could tell you the intake runner volume........but I'd have to kill ya (just kidding). Keep in mind that the intake runners in this casting are longer to allow standard 18 deg. intakes to bolt up. That further skews the numbers. You can't compare it to a 23 degree head. The cross section is conservative. It was designed to peak at 7200 RPM, and it basically did. All that being said, I measured 314 cc.

I've got a 9.325" tall deck block.....might as well take advantage of the extra room
.......and it is going in a heavy car/Chevelle

Re: 450 SBC Preliminary Dyno Results

that is badass.

whats the longevity of a motor of this caliber? is it streetable at all? how often will you be needing to freshen it up? rings/bearings/valves/springs wise?

Re: 450 SBC Preliminary Dyno Results

Excellent results & effort, Jason!!

Your oil change results are real similar to what I saw. IIRC, mine picked up about 7hp at pk, but the middle of the pull was a solid 10-12hp better. Too bad you didn't get to test the 2x4 setup. I'm sure there's still more hp with that arrangement.

Garret, those sbc guys needed a new sheriff anyways. The old sheriff disappeared over a year ago and smallblock land is running amuck with these pesky junkyard LS engines.
