This thread is going to be a conversation/journey/history about building up to this latest 389" roller motor for the '32 Hot Rod. I'm usually one of those guys who's not afraid to try some things, even if it cost's me a little more than usual. It's been a real learning experience. I hope you enjoy the ride! Over the years, I've had several different motors in this car since I built it back in '04-'07. All these motors were stroker motors with a B&M 144 blower on them. The first one was 383", B&M 144 blown, 010 medium-duty truck motor with a mild cam and stock, small valve, iron heads, and a 650 spread bore Holley on it. Of course, with a new build you tend to beat on it a bit, and in time I tore a few things up. Some were my fault and some were not. I'll get into that as we go.
