Thumbs up Can you say Hot Rod Inline Six Cylinder ?!

This engine was a collaboration between my dad and his cousin. It's a 292, bored .030 over. It's been balanced. It's got JE forged pistons that puts the compression at about 10.5:1. It has an Engle cam with 231 @ .050 duration and .565 lift. The head is a lump port head by Self with Ferrea 1.94/1.6 valves, K-Motion springs, Bill Smith pushrods, and Harland Sharp 1.75 roller rockers. The oil pan is a polished Hamburger aluminum pan, and the timing cover is a Frank pattern finned aluminum unit, and it has a custom made ATI Super Dampner and aluminum Fidenza flywheel. The intake manifold is a Clifford 4 barrel, with a 2" Super Sucker spacer and currently there is a Holley 750 carb on it that will probably get replaced with a Predator. This is going in a '37 Ford pickup with a Richmond 5 speed behind it.



Anyone else got any good videos of hot rod six cylinders ?

Yeah, this one is figured to have around 450 horse, so in a '37 Ford pickup with no fenders, no hood, etc, it should run a little faster than a 13.01.

Those are actually a set of dirt car headers. They don't make those any more. My dad's cousin used to be big into dirt track racing and has had all kinds of cool stuff for a longggg time.

This is another 6 cylinder they built. It's a 250 block with a 292 crank in it. It's got a bunch of wild parts in it too. It will probably get these headers put on it, or something similar built for it.

Yeah, they have been rounding up parts for this one for probably a year or so. The head that's on it has had the head bolt bosses cut out and had the lumps put in it, and it was ported and flowed by Glen and Kevin Self. Hell, the damn ATI dampner was special made for this engine and was $400 !

I notice you have the primary barrels of the carb away from the engine.
I have my Hyper pak slant set up like that, and have been told that "it don't work too good like that" by a few people.....
Seems to work just fine on that 292

THAT FRIGGIN' ROCKS. My dad raced 6's in the 50's/60's. Love seeing something other than a SBC in hot-rods.

Cool Motor, A good built 6 will always get more attention than almost any V8 sitting next to it.

No video's, but my Ford 300 project from a couple of years ago. Offenhauser Intake, Holley 600, Comp 270 cam, and Headman Header.

Awesome!

Not nearly as heavily modified as yours with an Offy Intake, Edelbrock 4bbl and Langdon's cast manifolds through 2" pipe and Porters...but I dig the 292 in my '63!
