The Grand Finale

Well...heres the deal. Everything is back in the car. All lines, hoses etc all mounted, just finnised threading wires hanging computer and relay box Just a few loose ends to tie up.

Got oil and anti freeze and all other fluids on the floor waiting to go in.

Waiting on one 90 degree elbow so they can finnish fabing the air box and inlet tube and than it will be time to turn the key and see what happens.

Oh ya gotta put tranny back in too. Took it out to put new seals in it and its a whole lot easier to get motor back in with it out. So gotta bolt tranny up bolt the exhaust back in and that is about it.

Leaving tomorrow on a cruise and if everything goes as planned it will be running and waiting for me when I get back. I guess that is one way to not be too diappointed that vacation is over when I can look forward to coming home and taking a test drive.

I will be thinking about it during the whole cruise but thats ok. Gives me something to look forward to.

So...bottom line. I will post an update when I return on the 18th. Hopefully weather permitting I will shoot some video and pics shortly there after. It is really coming together. Can't Friggin Wait !

Thats it for now stay tuned for the Grand Finale...

I think most people want to increase TQ, because achieving high HP numbers is pretty easy.

That's why I'm curious how they got it the other way around. I'd think it would have something to do with timing at lower RPM's and sacrificing timing at higher RPM's.

my 436 sbc came out the same way it made 635 hp and 680 ft.lbs,of torque all depends on how its built mines built for torque also,and only running 9.5:1 compression.

I make good torque (well over 600), and I have lower compression as well but HP at 6k, blows away the TQ #. Just curious what would make the TQ higher than HP.
I know the maggies product full boost right away, so that may be the difference. I have a ProCharger so I don't get full boost until a bit higher in the RPM range and at that point pure HP kicks in.

its all in the cam. its not a highly aggressive cam (more suited for a DD on the street) but with boost, it exaccerbates the pure torque down low.
The cam is not ground for top end power.

I prefer more torque than HP.

I look at it this way...

HP is how fast you hit the wall
Torque is how much of the wall you take with you.

and HP sells cars, torque wins races.

Believe me, right now I have enough of both with the booster CAM profile we've got in this engine.
Trying to decide what rims / tires I have to get now so I don't look like I"m skating around all day driving on the local roads.

Well Just got back from my cruise late last night...had a cancelled flight in Florida had to spend the night in NC. But, Good News The last e mail I got was...ITS ALIVE ! it started right up and is ready for Hi Gear Burn Outs.

I am going to get there as fast as I can this AM and check it out. Supposed to rain this afternoon hopefully i will get it out for a spin yet today. Either way I will have pics from an SLR camera and hopefully some video all posted today. Those who have seen it are telling the craftsman ship ended up fantastic so will share ASAP ! stay tuned.

ok, just stopped by to see my Baby and it is awefyul sweet ! Hood still isnt on it. Still have to find a lead for the tach which I have located on Factory Harness from torn Key just have to tap into it. The guy building it did manage to get a quick test drive in and said it was UNBELIEVABLE ! quote un Quote. All three gears of smoke at will. ( Grin Grin).

Still have to do some ride height adjustments. Front end sits at least 2 inches higher than factory with all the weight savings even with the Blower and inter cooler so I will be looking for some springs right after posting this. Need to drop it two inches and get some good progressive rates on the springs. Will probably throw some polyurethane control arm bushings in while I have them a part. Cleaning up the underside of the hood now so should be on next visit. I cant express my pleasure in the quality of the craftmanship. This thing looks completely factory ! Have to put freon in AC unit yet and a few small other items. Unfortunately it started pouring the minute I got to the shop so no drives or out side pics. I did take some pics with a 11 mega pixel camara and have some short video of it running so hope to have those posted sometime today. As soon as the weather breaks I will get it outside for a better photo shoot but keep in mind it will need to be lowered up front. also needs some serious front end alignment so still a few tweaks but man just to hear that baby sing and idle but boy does she bark. Literally scared the crap outa myself when I wound it up and this aint my first rodeo. This is going to be one bad SOB.

I will post updates hopefully daily at this point. Got some real work....the kind that pays the bills , to do today to catch up from the cruise but we will get on it ASAP.

The suspense is killing Me I need to drive this bad boy.

Will post pics and links as soon as I can !
