Vortecpro 454 Peanut Port Engine Build And Drag Test
Several years ago I bought a 1968 Chevelle and rebuilt it from the ground up with the intentions of testing my engines. I never had much time to run this car, but always wanted to test my peanut port 467 in this car and now the time has come. I would like to share my build with pictures on this forum with the intent of showing what goes into finding a rebuildable core along with the machining operations and all the details, and finally the bottom line, a track test.
My goal is simple: to run a 6 second 1/8 mile elapsed time at a 2130 feet elevation track with my full weight 68 Chevelle with my 236 headed peanut port 467, which consists of 9.2 compression, 228 @ .050 hyd flattappet, dual plane intake, 850 Holley. I believe this will be very informative and give a lot of insight into how dyno data translates into track times. Please follow along, I've got my work cut out for me.
