My old combo made 549RWHP/535RWTQ. This was on a DSS 306 with a basically stock fuel system. (155lph in tank, t-rex,stock rails and lines, 36 # inj) had to shut it down at 5000 rpms (too lean). Never de-dynoed after the fuel system - but, I split the block last May. I'm breaking in my new Dart 331 right now! I'm sure you'll see by the replies that the stock block will not last long at these power levels.

notice the "my OLD setup" and "USED TO".
True, but most people realize they are on borrowed time at those power levels. My motor was perfectly fine when I decided to build my new motor. I was going for 500rwhp and when I made 557 on the dyno I knew I needed to find a better foundation.

are those victor jr's ported?
The difference between the two setups are as follows

old ........................................................................ new
Cobra (extrude hone upper, ported lower ......RPM both ported
TFS heads ported.............................................Victor JR ported 302 230 @.600
S trim @ 15lbs..................................................T trim 13lbs
.........................................................................aftercooler (not used during dyno)
47lb inj, stock rail..............................................72lb inj, pro M rails
Paxton Blue..........................................................Weldon 2025
FMS 80mm MAF....................................................ProM 92mm
347 stock short....................................................351ci A4 based

Few more little things, the heads were ported in San Diego by ESI. The block was built by Duttweiler but I didn't have it built. I bought a buddys Lincoln MkVII that had the 347, S trim, TFS heads, cobra intake, Art Carr tranny etc.... I parted out the car and kept the short block.

The 3rd place number ([email protected] on ET streets) was done on a stock block. You tell me how many RWHP that is :eek: As far as I know, the motor never broke :eek: :eek: I don't remember what the exact turbo combo was. I believe it was just some ported orginal TFS highports. My memory is also shady on this, but I believe the long block was sold to another local that ran low 10's for a long time with it until it was sold... still no motor problems as far as I know.

I have a good friend that is running 9.80's @ 139 with a stock block TFS heads and a driver side Novi. He ran 10.13 @ 136 first time the car ever ran at NMRA Phoenix. He is an editor at Car Craft, he owns the flame car, it's been in the rag a few times. Very simple combo that really runs good. I believe he dynoed at ~525rwhp :confused:

Glad to hear that:). our car runs very strong, good job.

Those Lincoln parts didn't have many miles on them, he could never get the car to run right. He was always reading magazines and buying the newest neat part. Hs problems came from the fact that he never used the same mechanic, so no one really had a handle on the car. When I was pulling it apart I found numerous things wrong. He finally sold the car because it had a smoking problem. The person who assembled the heads didn't put the valve seals on correctly and they were all pushed up, this caused excessive oil consumption. I made out retty well on that car :)
