The engine was built at Howard Race Engines in Barrie, and is a 30 over 409 block, balanced etc., Scat 4" crank, and H beam rods, Ross 11.5/1 pistons, Comp Hydraulic Roller Cam 511/521 with 4/7 swap, 817 heads redone and ports cleaned up, 3 angle valve job, comp cam springs, Harland Sharp roller rockers. I used the 817 heads rather than Eddys so i could keep the old school look of 6 Holley 94s.
I had a little set back and had to order a new fuel reg today. The original would only go down to 4 psi and I need to regulate fuel pressure at 1 1/2 to 2psi max or it will overpressure the carb needle. Just a couple days till I get the right one!!
