Update TE Cortina Project Build

Now that I've worked out how to upload photo's I thought I'd share some pics of my current project. As my user name suggests I will be running a 351C c/w 2V OC heads which at 400' flow 498hp & 477hp @ 600' so we're hoping with the cam we've used will give us in the vicinity of 450-480. Nothing wild but enough to propel the corty quickly down the 1/4 mile.

Basically the engine goes like this;

Holley 800DP mech secondaries
'Supa Sucker' 2" spacer
Funnelweb 2V
2V OC Heads with Ferrea stainless valves int/exh with Isky 135lb Doubles with dampers.
Block is bored 30thou with a 4MA crank c/w shot peened/magna fluxed fomoco rods & TRW flat tops.
Cam is a solid low lift by Watson Cams based on Marty White ( John White Racing Engines ) recommendations. Int 510 Exh 519, Cam lift 295@50 with 108deg lobe sep. Duration is Int 298 & Exh 300. Range 3000-7000
Milodin single idler GD
Vertex Magneto

I'll be running a C4 c/w 3-4500 stall with obviously 9" with gearing to be determined once peak power/torque is known. The car will be street registered in Qld with all applicable mod codes ie: Eng, Trans, Diff, Roll Cage ( 6 point ), Brakes, Fuel Cell. I'll be running the hoppers stoppers upgrade kit which incl. the same size rotors 290mm as the XR8 c/w twin piston PBR calipers. The rotors FRONT/REAR will be DBA cross drilled/slotted. At the moment the cage and mini tubs are done and the engine is run in. At this stage the build has slowed a little due to moving house but now that I've worked out the photo thing I'll be able to update my fellow FORD ( F**K OFF ROTISSORIES & DOOF DOOFS ) lovers.

Re: Update TE Cortina Project Build

hey corty when do you hope to finish the corty? my xy should be finished before christmas and i will hit willowbank in january depending on streetmeets/test & tunes, be happy to give you a run but i may need a 1.5 second head start as im only shooting for a low twelve maybe high 11, yours looks good for 10s.

Once it's sorted I'm pretty sure it will be an easy 11 car. I;m only looking to run super street so the car may have more potential and in the long term I'm looking to put my daughter in the seat. She turns 17 in July 2006 so I'll have her race a stocker to gain high speed confidence then work her over to this one.

Yes straight in You'll need to buy a crs kit. I'm using my crs kit to position the engine for installation of engine plate to make it easier for headers.
