Big Block Brainstorming
I have a 454 that I pulled out of my 70 Chevelle and I've be considering swapping it into a 94 mustang v6 i planned to flip to make it a drag car. Id make my chevelle more street oriented and probably swap in a tko600 to use the th400 i built for mustang. As far as im concerned this motor should be pretty fresh with potentially a forged rotating assembly... I'd verify all of this first but it did run a 12.77 in the 70 chevelle with a small hyd roller, 063 heads, edelbrock performer rpm air gap, 650 cfm double pumper and the th400 with a very tight 2000ish converter. Would anyone have a solid roller cam recommendation for this motor? I'm wondering if i could get enough out of this set up with just a cam or maybe piston swap also to increase the compression. Since the mustang is close to 1000lbs lighter I think it could make a pretty fun track car. Thanks for the input.
