SHE-IT!

I had my ass handed to me tonight by a '71 Chevelle SS 350. Not just a small
chunk of my ass, but like it got supersized before he handed me the WHOLE
DAMN THING!!! Like I was standing still. He looked over and said, "You wanna
go?", Me being the moron, knowing that if he's askin' he knows he can take
me. Light turns green and he goes like a bat outta hell right off the line.
Once I got going I slowly gained, but never passed. Maybe if I had another
mile I'm sure my accel pump is too light. I put my foot in it and the carb
was like, "What, Gas? Now? You're kidding right?" Course I'm very sure the
Chevy was running way deeper than my 3.70's in his pumpkin, and he had the
obvious drag shock stance on the front end. I shoulda KNOWN better!!!
AAARRRGGHHHH!!!!!!!!


This is all I saw......

Which is why I turned my OT Windsor into a stroker in BB CID territory.

Just wondering, but the 360 in my brother's '72 Ranger should fit in my '69?
It's just a 390 block with the 352 crank right? Swap in a 428 crank and
voila' 410, right?

IIRC it takes the 428 block and some later model(early 70's) 390 truck
pistons.

Basically true. Rods and pistons are dfferent, too.

> Swap in a 428 crank and voila' 410, right?


Close: you'd also have to use the pistons and rods for a 410, as the
352 and 360 rod lengths are different from the 390 and up.

Think 460. Cheap and very powerful.

Better point. We have a 67 fastback, junk yard 460, runs 11.30's @ 115 MPH.
Stock standard bore block, stock cast pistons, stock crank, cleaned up the
bump in the exhaust ports and put in CJ exhaust valves in a set of stock
early heads. Lunati cam, Stealth intake with an 800 CFM carb. We slowed it
down to avoid replacing the out of date seat belts by reducing the launch
RPM and backing off the timing. Car ran a best of 11.65 slowed down with the
800. Put a stock 650 CFM dual pumper on it. Ran 11.535 and 11.545 @ 114 MPH
with the smaller carb in "slowed down" tune. It's down about one MPH from
the 800. We have not run it wide open with the 650. I'm sure with some fine
tuning this car can get into the 10's. BTW: It's running a 4.30 gear and
it's over the motor in the traps. "Fine tuning" would include going to
4.10's.

One of our racing buddy's has a 67 notch powered by a 460. His is cleaned
up, 10.5 to one pistons, better heads and just a better prepared engine but
still with stock parts, C6, 4.30 gears. He has made it into the high tens.
He drives it on the street all the time. It has a mild tub job and 10 inch
slicks. Runs with full exhaust with an X pipe.

In contrast, my 73 454 Nova street rig with 4.89 gears runs 12.0's. It's
about 300 pounds heavier than the fastback. It's a 10 to 1 mostly stock 454
with a Comp hydraulic cam, Strip Dominator intake with an 800. It's .030"
over so it's also a 460:) Has stock small port 396 heads and full exhaust.
With Nitrous this car was in the 10's, the only difference is the Nitrous
system is removed. Another quick way to pick up some thrust:)

I went back finally and reread this post and relized it is the Crank, not
block.
