OK, My Turn. How Much HP Do You Think My 540 Will Make?
My new 540 is ready to go over at USA Racing Engines in Houston, (The Wop Shop). All I have to do is take the carb and distributor off of my motor to Bruce so he can put her on the dyno next week.
540 cubes, Dart Big M Block, Air Flow Research full CNC 290 Heads, RPM Performer intake, port matched to heads, Edlebrock 800 carb, Hyd Roller, .675 lift, 234-238 at .050, 10 to 1 compression, zero deck, deck plate honed, Morel Lifters, Comp Cams Magnum Pro Rockers, everything assembled to the highest standards.
My goal is a big inch, hard hitting street engine that will run on what's in the pump, idle at 800 with 16 lbs of vacuum, have the torque come in quick and stay flat, and be perfectly compatible with my TCI 6X 6Speed Auto and 3,31 gear, reving to around 6500.
What do you all think?
'67 Chevelle Malibu, Catalina Blue, 540 inch Rat, Air Flow Reasearch 290 CNC Heads heads, Custom Hyd Roller, .675 lift, 234, 244 at .050, Lemons Headers, Holley Multiport Fuel Injection, TCI 6X 6Speed Automatic, 12 bolt Posi Eaton TruTrac, 3:31 Richmond Gears, front and rear power disc brakes, Global West Suspension, etc.
