    Ok, mechanical ? for ya. I'm about to start building my 1st stroker motor and need some technical advice. What is the largest stroker crank you can get for a stock deck height 350 SBC and what length of rod on what type of piston? And do I have to use a particular type of rings? A lil advice is needed...tnx

    I just pushed the wrong button and sent an empty reply.

    Yes I agree, they seem to stop thinking about the GM factory roller set up when they reach as much cam as you can stuff into a TBI or TPI engine.

    Hi. I recently saw a post you responded to in regard to a 429 HP question. I have a question regarding the same engine. I have a '68 T-Bird with the 429. It's making some noise that sounds like lifter/pushrod or something? A buddy told me to drain the oil, fill with 6 quarts of Type F trans fluid, bring it to temp and drain. Then, fill it back with oil. I haven't done that yet, but was planning on it soon. First, should I? Second, what type of oil would you recommend for that motor? It's stock w/ a Holly 650. Fuel? I'm not super savvy with motors compared to most out here, and surely not considered a mechanic. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    You recently gave me a post for overheating issues which was very helpful. I still need to hook up my bypass tube since i dont have a heater core installed. It is now cooling down at stop lights but still getting up to 230. I think my header crankcase evacuation system is pushing exhaust back into my valve covers since I put mufflers on the exhaust system and I am unable to find check valves any in the lines. If i remove this should i just use breathers or should I hook up a PCV to the carb? thanks

    I'm Bodie Byles, The one who you called a dumb *** and needed mental help. I have a 67 Camaro street car that I plan on driving on the street, I have a Bill Mittchell SBC 454 with a set a CNCed and flowed heads in it, with a full Roller Cam set up. It Dynoed 707hp at 6800 Rpm. It has 8:7:1 compression. I have a ProCharger F2 supercharger I'm going to install on it. I thought with all your Knowledge you could tell me what kinda Transmission you would run in it? I have a buildt 4L85E Or a Turbo 400 built with a reverse valve body. I have a Coan Built convertern for the 400; I would have to get one for the 4L85E I'm just going to drive it around town and Maybe to the track . Can you think of anything stronger I could put in it? It should be making 1200-1300 hp on pump gas. You seem very Knowledgeble and I wanted your opinon.
