    Default 555 BBC for the TR2

    Thought I'd post my engine config and dyno results from my 555 for reference. Dart Big M block 4.560 bore. Eagle 4.250" 4340 Crankshaft, Eagle H-beam 6.800 rods, JE domes. I dont remember part number but made a little over 14/1 with 118 chambers. Heads: Dart Pro 1 345, K-motion 1.625 doubles w/dampers, again dont remember part number. Around 300# seat with shims. Heads hand ported by Xsr Cylinder Head. Flow: 385/in 303/ex at .700. Cam by Jones Cam Designs in North Carolina L/C 112, Intake C/L 108, Exhaust C/L 116. Duration at seat 344/in, 348/ex, dur. @ .050 291/in 294/ex. Lift .771/in .770/ex. 1.7 Jesel shaft rockers. 4/7 swap cam. Peak torque 706.3 @ 5600. Peak HP 915 @ 7500. Was at 900HP @ 6900 and we spun it to 883HP @ 8200. Made 900HP to 7900 then fell off. Torque stayed high 600's until about 7000. This setup is topped by Dart tunnel with two 1150 Dominators. Msd ignition 7al-2. Intake also direct port 200hp nitrous(didnt dyno with N2O). Whew... long winded but didnt want two leave anything out. Let me know if I did.

    Wow, do you plan on spinning it to 8200 plus in the boat? All I can say is nice and lets see the boat.

    Sounds like a nice build. What valve train, and what oil pan if you don't mind saying?
    Sorry...just saw the Jessel rockers...
    So the real question is, did this build do what you wanted/expected it to do?

    Dont mind saying at all steel. Unfortunately the pan is regular sump Milodon V-drive piece. Did make custom pick-up though as we had problems with milodons piece from a previous build. Valve train: Comp pres. fed lifters, manley pushrods, jesel 1.7/1.7 pro shaft rockers, 1.625 springs... they are k-motion dont remember spec, good to .810 lift. Were recommended by Jones cams. 2.30/1.88 manley valves, titanium retainers. As far as did it do what i wanted?? I was a little disappointed on the torque numbers with that cubic inch but we'll see. The boat had a pump gas 496, dynoed 679HP @ 6800. Ran 103 on gps. Never got to a race for an e.t. Guess I wont know till first pass down track. Might can get idea from GPS run.

    H2O as far as turning 8200... I would like to be in the 7800 range but who knows at this point. Gonna be trial and error on gears and prop. Bad part is no close racing in South Carolina. At least one race will be test and tune. I'd like to be 9.0's on motor.

    I'll try and get some pics of motor up tonight

    Sounds like that should certainly pick that TR2 up a little on the performance end.

    Default similar N/A combinations

    Just curious what anybody elses results were on similar N/A combinations. Also lookin at the dyno results, with the direct port 200 shot, what kind of realistic torque/horsepower increase should I look for?

    Not exactly similar but here are two you can look at:

    Cyclone:



    582", 13.7:1 compression, 1,041 @ 7,100 na, 1,284 @ 6,900 Nos
    http://www.performanceboats.com//showthread.php?t=20956

    Sleeper CP:



    565", 11.8:1 compression, 935 HP at 7,000 na, didn't run the Nos on the dyno.
