Yeah-I have read the whole thread and just gotta say I hate it when O/P's ask a question or for help,then argue they have the answer already.Kind of dishonest in intent.

Sir you have burned through alot of guys good intentions trying to honestly help you with your "TEST".

Your loss....................................I'm out.

406 Engine Build...What do you think?

Here is a reason we warn of too much compression. Do a search for this post. Fresh 383 burns up pistons

You say at post #3 that you haven't chosen a head gasket yet, then you say below that the engine has been running great for a long time and you were TESTING to see if you want to join the forum???????

Bc the guy who sold me my kit said it will have 10.3 to one compression, and is pump gas friendly. And 2, a set up similar was made and it ran on pump gas and no one on here believes it which is irritating...so I dunno if that would bother you when you are just askin someone to check out your setup and that's why a post was made saying a motor has been running good and I meant my friends 350 with a very similar set up and not my build

Ok well the guy who built my kit runs a profitable business doing so and if he says my kit is 10.3:1 and pump gas friendly, I'm going to take his word...and for one you have to be downright ignorant if you put a hole in a piston due to detonation

Intentions with a little bit of false information is why I'm pissed at this thread...I don't like it when I ask an opinion and someone goes on that the compression isn't what the kit builder says, especially when the kit builder makes a living doing so...it's disrespect towards me and the builder...and I'm sure it will run on pump gas so don't tell me it won't! Lol

Both are small blocks, same cam, he had flat tops with 4 valve reliefs with a 64cc chamber and he didn't have detonation issues...my 406 has reverse dome pistons that advertise 10.3:1 compression with a 64cc combustion chamber...and everyone on here seems too think this won't work

what size of headers are you using?
I didnt say it wouldnt work and tech was hinting you would have detonation problems
Tech is one of the best guys here when it comes to doing the math. You really need to watch closer,,,,

Good point. The fact of the matter is... you fibbed to everyone on this forum. And, you came here and asked for help and then argued about the advise cause someone else told you different. As my dad always said, "Don't ask a question if you don't want to know the answer."

Also this combo may work, stranger things have happened in engine building. But if a qualified machinist recommended this build and siad it would run fine on pump gas, then I would recommend finding a new machinist.

well my machinist has been making engines for the last 30 years and says that 10.3 will run on 87 octane let alone 93 octane and he also runs a very profitable business and has only had 4 engines fail over the last 30 years which is pretty impressive...I didn't ask for help either, I asked opinions of my set up...also i'd like to say that my machinist filled the bore, and figured my exact compression and it came out to about 10.3:1...hmmm...

Fine, you came here and asked for "opinions" and then argued about the advise cause someone else told you different.

There I changed it. The point is still the same.

To prove some people on forums have no idea what they are talking about and am I not allowed to not agree with you guys on here?
