1 block, 11 pistons, many puchrods, 3 heads (2 matching), one intake (cracked on the bottom :() and many other pieces for $500. Block looks good, crank rings like a bell when struck with a hammer, pistons look OK, but everything is dirty as hell right now. We're dropping it off for hot bath tomorrow. Only problem in the cylinders is a small streak from a ring I would assume, very minute, easily fixable with the amount of wall we have left between the cylinders, I think.

Please tell me that's going in the civic :)

Looks nice, always interesting picking up someone else's basket case! Good luck, looks like a good project.

Relic of a motor, or car?

Motor will be stuffed with forged internals, punched 30 or 60 over, depending on what the cylinders need. An 8-71 if we build it right, a 6-71 if we decide to skimp. The bottle has crossed our minds but we are not making any plans for it. We will strive for 93octane when underdriven and possibly 113 octane at the track when overdriven.

The car will be certified for 9.2s or slower I believe. I cannot remember the exact times for the cage we are going with. Either a full tube-frame chassis or a custom frame built in home. A modified mustang front end, four-link and coilovers in the rear. We are going to try our hardest to keep it street legal, but in Va, you cannot have anything aft of the dashboard that extends more than 2" above the plane of the dash. (Can't have things poking out of the engine bay, ie. BLOWER). Maybe we can find a tech and get a favor done, or register it as an antique and have that waved. We will see.

We hope to have a 10s car by the time the project is over. Along with a fun driver on the street.

Small? How will a 400+ CI motor be small when there are 350's and 302's running faster than we plan to?

And it's only oldschool if you build it that way:naughty: ;)

Got around to posting pics of the cleaned block. We need to paint the exterior and continue to keep the other parts soaked in oil/wd40 to prevent rustola coming back. :crap:

The valley is a littel dirty, but I am still pleased. $40 and ~50 years of grime off is fine with me. The cylinders need to be honed to get the rest of the crap that the blast did not. We will save that for a later date. No reason to hone it only if they will be bored later on, ya know?

Youll hit 9's w/ that falcon...****** things weigh as much as my left nut.

But WHY an 8-71, other than the "omg look at that car" look. You'll save soooo much money/time going w/ the bottle, not trying to have a boner for it, but speaking practically.

Unless you got the change for it, then go w/ it...OR GO TURBO

406+76mm turbo=death of the tires

If you turbo it, it will be faster. Garunteed. Turbo>SC.

OOOOORRRRRRRRRRRR go with a PSI blower. :) :) :) I think excelerator would agree, PSI>Weiand.

I would like to go with a large trubo, or two smaller ones, but this is partly a drag car, as well as partly my dads dream build from when he was younger. The blower is not so much to get the race part done, as to satisfy my dad's inner child that had a desire for that big, blown motor. Got to remember, in the 80's, blowers were all the rage, and his Camarao would have been blown, had it not been for some asshat in a paintbooth. So, that is why the blower.

Although we may not use an 871, that may be a ltitle too much air for us, it will all depend on how we build the bottom end/heads.

Haha, we would love to, but I just don't know the physical properties of them. I have bought some literature so I will check otu the numbers and run some calculations with our proposed internals and see ho things look. While we may not be going wih a cheap motor to begin with, it would be nice to do the most with the least. Ya know?

Also, we arent going with Wieand for sure, we may look into BDS as well as other companies.

Freggin hooooggeeeeee :D

Got the heads painted, keeping the bare metal saturated in WD40. Taping up the block but it is just such a tedious task, and I have NOOO time :( If I don't hurry up though, I'm gonna have to get er cleaned again :crap:

I figured I would just keep updating this.

Not a final paint job, this is just for the time being, in order to keep it from rusting. Once we go for a final build or start the machine work we will probably get it acid bathed to ensure every little crevise is cleansed.

Tell me what ya think. Chrysler Inductrial Orange :)

:laugh: As long as she goes fast, I will rock it:)
Yes, that Falcon is **** as hell. I think ours will be as well, but as time goes on, I am starting to get a little boner for the 63's, they are a little more rounded in case you did not know. BUT, I have to admit, if I had any tubbed car sitting in my driveway, I would think it was **** as hell. I'm not rich enough/experienced enough to dislike something that deserves 15" tires :p:
