    Sorry to hear about your shop Jackson. My daughter saved some cash. So We had a few choices. Small block, air conditioning or the Paxton. She said everyone has a small block and if we get it fast enough she will have enough wind so no a/c.

    I know nothing about these blow through‘ so it should be fun. The plan is a cam and some major head work over the winter. I hope to come up with or make pulleys to v-belt it

    You will either need a box for the carb or a blow through carb and a bigger fuel pump to keep fuel pressure above boost pressure also a boost sensitive pressure regulator a carb enclosure would be the easiest and look correct also easier on the wallet if you need any help let me know

    The way sbf parts are priced since the 5.0 cars took off,you could probably build a 302/347 as cheap as a 350/383...just depends which car you score to shove it in.
    An early Falcon comes to mind for either motor.Joe Lunsford runs a 331ci sbc in his Falcon “Frozen in Time”,and it’s a really badass,correct looking car that’s gonna run REALLY hard once he get some more seat time to figure out the combination.
    It’s already pulling the wheels on the launch.

    Scott. My Ford engine stash ranges from 289's up tp 460's and everything worth having in between. So I can build most anything! It is just that James said I did not have to be fast to have fun. Chevys can be fun and not fast, right??? lol I am still resisting my buddies temptation on that 64 Mercury. Besides if I build one those Chevys I got, some Chevy guy will pay big bucks and I can buy more Ford stuff!!!! lol Larry

    My daughter isn’t running hers again until it’s fast. No pressure on my part or anything. The old grocery getter is all we are bringing. It may be its last meltdown event. Next year both kids will have there’s ready and unless I come up with a semi and a better money tree I am not sure I could get 3 there.

    You should be grateful you have youngins interested.
    Trying to get more than one car to an event takes some capital, hell to get one there does.
