Oh, I thought you were referring to the street engine cylinder heads we were discussing for street useage. The best cylinder head used on the Comp Eliminator 292 race engine that made over 600 HP flowed as much as 349 CFM, and required many hours of brazing and port modifications to achieve this level of performance. Too bad they didn't last as long as it took to port them.

Eaton m90 supercharger from a mid 90s buick or T-bird. If you have some fab skills it's not too hard to do.

I want to make this engine as strong as I can on a budget, but still have something I can depend on. Give me some suggestions on a cam, intake (4BBL or 3 carb), compression, Should I mill the head or buy pistons, ect.
I'm shooting for at least 300+ HP~ 1HP per CI
I want a good daily driver that can occasionally burn rubber, but I don't want to go the SB route just because everyone has one and I want to stand out a little. I've seen 292's that can easily do a 10 sec 1/4 mile... OH, this is replacing the stock 216 from a 1949 chevy 3/4 ton pickup

It was a real awesome experience to have been able to be exposed to such racing icons as Jim and Cotton. It also was a daily surprise to see what well known racer would walk thru the door also and go to lunch with us just like one of the guys. Guys like Charlie Lee, Sonny Ray, David Rampy, Floyd Cheek, the late Bobby Hamilton, Larry Pritchett and of course all the Labbous'....I could write a book on all the racers that came in there on a regular basis. It sure was a sad time when Jim passed. His son Sandy and myself ran around, so I think your racing days were quite a bit before my time. Im sure I would recognize your name or face though. What memories....
