Dream Car

Hello...I purchased a 331 hemi going into a 41 willys glass body. I want to make it pro-street. Looking for best way to get maximum horse power from engine, without a second mortgage.

Thanks Patchman...Any help would be appreciated.

How about a "Line of Credit" ....maximum hp = $$$$$$$.....getting maximum hp out of any 331" engine will cost. In my humble opinion the only way to stuff a hemi into a Willy's is with a 6-71 sticking out'in the hood with a polished Hilborn "Bug Catcher" on top.....

Thanks for the reply. I knew i"d hear that,I"M going to use a 671,but don"t know much about the heads and block,what to do and what not to.etc. What to buy and use or what not to use. I was told by someone to use 354 heads and take the 331s to the junk,would this be true.

Depends on the year of the heads. In '54 the 331 came with two different heads, large port and small port. You want the large port heads which are the same size as 354s. The very best early hemi heads are the '55 331 heads. Those are so good they were used by the early top fuel cars.

You need to contact Bob Walker at Hot Heads. He is probably the most knowledgeable person on early hemis. He can also provide you with the parts you'll need.
