Econo 350 And It Runs Gooood !

Econo 350 , It's In And It Runs Good

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I finished my econo 350 and ran the streets and highways yesterday . What I ended up with is a 355 with flat top pistons and 462624 heads with 1.94 intakes , Weiand 8004 intake , Edelbrock 1405 carb calibrated for economy , Sealed Power 274 stock grind cam . This turns an 1800 stall converter on a turbo 350 trans into an early GM rearend which appears to be about 3.08 ratio . Estimated to be about a 300 hp sleeper engine . It runs ever so sweetly and sounds very unintimidating at idle or cruise . But does it RUN ? Okay it is in an 1840 lb T-bucket and even with my 300 lb bulk we have about 7 lbs per hp. At an idle ( 600 rpm in gear )in low ; lift my foot off the brake and mash the throttle . Tires (P295x50x15) light and car fishtails . BM ratchet shift to second at 5500 rpm and thats enough . Gets light in front after 80 mph . WHOOO HOOO !! We're having fun now !
