Motown 427 Short Block Build
I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction to finish out a Motown 427 short block (low comp., -20cc Rev Dome pistons). Itís going in a 69 Camaro vert. Iíve got a Currie 9Ē with 3.70 gears and a TKO-600 w/ the .64 OD.
The complete crate engine from World has 520 hp and 495 ft. lbs. Iíd like to build my engine with at least 500 hp and about the same on the torque. One trick is I need to keep this thing under the stock hood and itís not a cowl. That probably means a dual plane manifold and if possible Iíd like to put dual quads on it (just cause I think theyíre cool). I also need to be able to run the AC, pwr steering and breaks.
Iím confident I can put the engine together I just donít know what heads, cam etc.. to use. I do know Iíd like to stay hydraulic on the lifters to stay away from the maintenance of adjusting the solids. Any help would be great.
