454 engine build
I have a 454 bored .040 I had build a few years ago for a mud truck. I got rid of the truck and now I am thinking of doing another truck. This motor has been sitting for over a year I have turned it over a few times since it has been sitting. I am thinking about freshing it up and trying to get a little more compression out of it. As I said it's a 454 bored .040 scat 4.25 crank, H beam rods, small dome pistons (can't remember exactly what the dome was), edelbrock aluminum heads 110cc, rpm air gap intake, harland sharp roller rockers, all balanced. It was suppose to have about 9.25 compression. I would like to up that to 10.25 or so, (run on 93 or maybe a mix of 93 and 100) I was wondering what the best way to up the compression ratio would be? Deck the block, shave the heads? I hate to buy new pistons since these only have maybe 300 miles on them. I also would like to hear some cam ideas? I just want to make the most hp and tq I can with what I have, by changing the cam and upping the cr. I am also gonna have the heads and intake cleaned up and matched. I will be running a 2500 stall, th400 transmission. Let me know what you think.
