    I stand corrected. I honestly did not expect those numbers. TQ is a tad light but that is a very good set of numbers. Great job man.

    Congrats on the build so far. I guess theres a few ways to lookat it. You can go through all of your builds doing exactly what every one else says all the time and really never learn anything. Or you can cultivate a concept and see it through to the end and learn as you complete your build from you victories and your failures. That being said its always good to listen to what everyone, (that actually knows) has to add to your builds, digest it and plug in what works in your eyes. Its still YUOR project in the end and if all your left with is a basket of parts from a failure than hell, what a great lesson.

    When I was 16 I was still cleaning oil out of the bottom of drag boats and doing gruntwork learning the trade. Its great your so vested and hands on with such a clear vision of what you want out of your build. One hell of a wow factor when you see the car and a bunch of fun.

    I would do what the guys suggested for your own benifit of knowledge and experiance and try to drop a smaller group of carbs on there to "just see" what the numbers will be. Another one of those learning oppertunitities you shouldnt pass up.

    I own a 63 Falcon sprint with a roller 5.0L, large port, high flow Avenger heads, Forged rotating assem, 9:1 comp, single 735cfm Holley carb, electric fuel pump, RPM Air gap manifold, MSD 6AL and Blaster 2 coil, Thunderbolt Ram air, Roller rockers, Dougs Headers and an electric water pump. The powerplant makes a solid 435 H.P. on a CHASSIS dyno. The car is used as a touring car / open track car. The point being is these Ford small blocks run really strong and even stronger when the combo is correct, or should I say optimal.

    On the carb flip side, our shop car is a 64 Fairlane 500 Gasser, econoline straight axle, 455 C.I. FE stroked/forged kit from Survival Motorsports. That huge firebreather has a M/T cross ram manifold on it (very large plenum manifold). I run two 600 CFM Holleys on this car. For me too it was a matter of trial and error.

    I guess getting them to run the best is what its all about. she's your bird, its your call to make it happed the best you see fit. Great build. im really stolked for you.

    congrats on getting it together. What's the game plan now regarding further test/tune or putting it in the car with stall, gear, tire size adjusted for your curve?

    I have a 260 that ran a Weiand tunnell ram, 2 390 cfm Holleys, National Crankshaft Co. ( i think) R8 grind cam, 2 angle valve job ( my builders 3rd stone was broken) headers and a Mallory unilite. It went like stink and i never had any problems with it, it made vaccum for the brakes that everyone told me it wouldn't, didn't bog like everyone said it would so sometimes shit just works against what people think ??? I still have my 260, the ram has gone and in it,s place is a Ford dual quad with the same 390,s so it will fit under the hood of my 66 falcon hardtop.

    Nice little run on engine dyno hope it works as well on chassis dyno fig on a loss of somewhere around the 50 to 75 hp at rear wheels should still get you a respectable number at the track

    everyone goes about things there own way ..me i went small blower on my sbf 397 rear wheel hp 11.7 at 118 mph with lots of tuning still ongoing lol cant wait till you post your track time should be quite the ride straight axle gasser best of luck and wishes
