After a few years of working on everyone elses hotrods I'm finally making some headway on my '69 Chevelle.
427 +.030. TRW L72 pistons. ~9.65-1 compression with 119cc chambers. OEM rods with good bolts, OEM forged crank, 2 bolt block.
This has been a reliable solid running combo in the past. I used to daily drive the car.
It's getting updated to a Cam Motion HR 236/240 110 LSA .612/.596 cam, Morel rollers, Comp Ultra Magnum rockers.
The heads came in today. Profiler 290 cc ovals (Jeg's). I'm planning to do some very minor work to clean up the ports, check the guide clearance, valve job, chamber cc, install some titanium retainers, check the springs, etc.
The intake is a Edelbrock Vic. Jr EFI with a FAST 1375 cfm throttle body. Injectors will likely be 48 lb/hr. Looking at the Holley Dominator controller so it can run the 4L80E as well.
Planning on Stainless Works headers running through the existing 3" exhaust (probably upgrade to a stainless exhaust eventually).
Overall a pretty tame driveable 427. I hope to make it run solid mid 11's through the mufflers on drag radials.
Anybody want to make suggestions on the head/intake port configuration.
I know the Profiler heads like their own intake, the Vic Jr I have is a rect port. I plan to look at them tomorrow when I get some gaskets in hand.
I know the rect port intake/ oval head combo works fine, and this is obviously not an all out combo with the baby HR cam. Is it worth doing anything to the heads or intake to help match them up, or just run with it?
