Pat your making some good power with that kind of ET.

I guess a well dyno tuned fuel injection street car with high compression will be pretty darn fast.

Dont remove any material from your pistons. This is where you must clearance the cam/case.

If you buy from dpr they can balance the entire assembly. Spend some smart money to make assembly easier. ...

I'd throw 5.5 rods and call it a day. Your 69's engine compartment will have ample room.

I strongly suggest sending out your case and get the lifter bores sleeved (send them a lifter to match the b ...

No arguments or debates. I have no energy nor time to express what works for me.

If you look at DMS full circles they are not truly a full circle like many imagine. Would I buy one agai ...

Adding weight doesn't balance a crankshaft, balancing it does. This myth about FC cranks is ridiculous. Rolling Eyes

The weight is not the contributing factor for the advantages of full circle.

For your application I'd say 8mm and call it a day. Case savers with 8mm will work absolutely fine. 10mm gets tighter in fitment (not a big deal) however the 8mm has more ease of assembly.

Why dontcha contact Glenn. He probably has a good handful fully rebuilt ready to go. While your at it get the cap/rotor for tuneup parts.

As far as the pertronix is concerned I'd see if there is a ...

I have both a welded full circle (made by DMS) and also a counter balanced welded from DPR.

Theory goes that the additional "cheeks" help make the crank more rigid. I've beat on my DMS cr ...

Lifter bore lifespan is unpredictable. I had a new mexi as41 wobble bores in less than 1000miles. I wobbled them to an egg shape. My cam still looks mint and so do my udo lifters. If I use ...

No where did I see what "desired" rpm range in the top end.

With a 3.88 r/p and stock gears I probably would'n't go 86C.

Seeking power and driveability theres a fine balance. Everyone ...

Slr treatment is merely assuring a nice radius on the head of the lifter. Peace of mind since its not a quick batch process on the assembly line.
However this is not a 100% success rate since the mat ...
