You've been a member here for what...7 days and throw this attitude toward long term knowledgeable members? It won't be tolerated, that's strike one and two.

You should take some time and refer back to some of his numerous posts and you will realise that his opinions are matter of fact and that advice that he generously offers to people here is good advice that actually facking works!
He has helped me and others tremendously.
This thread has gotten way of track and I hope the OP has gotten the information that he sought and some giggles along the way!

thinwhiteduke Yeah, giggles is prolly the wrong word to use. It just amuses me how these threads sometimes go of on tangents.
I glad you got the info that you were looking for and wish you the best with your build.

You are very right on FBird and the point of this thread. I have definately got my answer and know what head i'm going with and very thankful for all the help. I didn't get any giggles from a few of the posts on here, got somewhat offended but I try to keep that to myself. I dont like drama and I really dont like young fellers that disrespect others.

F-BIRD'88 Gary you can try to actually break a Stock General Motors made 350 SBC crank shaft using a Weiand 177 blower on a 350 YOU BUILT, Tested and Broke that crank shaft, YOURSELF.
Bring us that broken crankshaft, broke in that matter I stated, by you personally.
I'll be here waiting too.

Finding a crankshaft that has a crack in it and finishing it off with a big hammer does not count.
Has to be a stock GM 350 cast crankshaft that was broke by running it in YOUR 350 using a Weiand 177 supercharger on that motor.

F-BIRD'88 I'm still waiting. And I have been insulted before. It didn't work. SO go find a set of the heads and get to it.
I'll be here.... Have a great day.

The Camaro Kid No, the difference between you and I is I'm smart enough not to waste my time trying to turn boat anchors into gold.

Yeah, just as I thought. No qualifications or certs to back up what you say? Did you even graduate from high school or have you spent your entire life on here accumulating 7300 posts on here acting like you invented the internal combustion engine? I hear there's an ignore list. You're on it for sure and I hope others put you on theirs. You just give plain old bad advice with an attitude.
12-29-2012 02:44 PM
F-BIRD'88 The difference between me and Bydggy and you, is this.

We have both done this, ourselves. Already. And you have not...yet...

Thats a big difference. And all the qualification needed.
12-29-2012 02:35 PM
F-BIRD'88 In fact go thru any of my old posts and follow the specific advise, recomendation, or recipe I offered,
exactly as stated, on what ever that question or problem was and DO IT YOUR SELF. And bring the results back here, YOUR RESULTS.

In other words DO it your self and try to see if it came out any different than I said It will.

Try to disprove what I said or advised. By doing it yourself to either prove it or disprove it.

We'll be waiting.

It was directed to F-Bird88. I'd like to see the qualifications that he feels entitles him to talk down to people and say that his builds are the gospel. From what I've seen, he's no more qualified than anybody else. He just posts the most and the "loudest".
Why don't you dig up a 305 head 4416 casting and port it yourself, to the best of your ability. Install 1.94x 1.60 valves. Get it flow tested. Then install it on a 350 and test it. And then come back here and tell me and everyone else that cares to listen that your result was any different than what I said the result would be. Anything less or anything more.
And what it cost you total cost.

Then do it again. Same experiment: Port the head, install the valves and test on a flow bench and then on a 350 test engine.
Even compare other heads to the heads you did, on the same 350 engine.
Put it on a dyno, run it down the drag strip, run it around a dirt track, hell just run it around on the street and see how you like it. Good or bad. Better or worse. than a stock head, than a vortec head or any other head you can dig up, beg borrow or steal. Bolt hem all on a try them out. good or bad expensive or cheap.
Test your heads, try a few friends best or worst efforts.

In other words put it to the test, yourself.
Until you have DONE IT YOURSELF you don;t know.

If/ when you were to actually do it for yourself, you will find your result will be real close to everything I said it will be. Hell, maybe better.

To start, just do one intake port on the head and get it flow tested.
rough in a 1.94" valve job and test with a old 1.94" valve on the flow bench.
Come back here and tell me I'm wrong.

Try to disprove it. By doing it.
I don't need your qualifications.. I trust ya.


Note: When you have done that,, we can compare qualifications.

1Gary Yeah but NASCAR has always had odd ball combo's.I bought at the Indy Drag Racers auction a NASCAR 4.3 and had contact with them until it was done.It is the reason why the teams start with rough forgings or a blank slate. We had been going to that auction for yrs and there was time when Indy cylinder heads ran the event.We got to know them and saw some of their exotic workmanship.Just works of art.
