    I'm doing the same project with my 454. Opened it up to replace heades with performer RPM's and found a mess. Bored over .60, dimple rods, forged 13.8 dome pistons. Will have 9.75 compression. XM270h comp cam. Bowtie intake. Using stock logs which I port matched. Headers cost to much and would be a hassle with my engine cover ( which I like). Hopping to make about 450 hp @5,200. Almost together and ready for boat.

    Default 1977 Biesemeyer

    Here's our project, a 1977 Biesemeyer that pops and I are gonna race this summer in the new small block SE flat bottom class. Needs quite a bit of work like anodizing and polishing but it's all there and it all works!

    Sadly my pile is likely a winter, summer and then another winter kind of project. Probably wont make it on the water this year unless I steal the kids boat.

    I am just off of Bucklin Hill Rd at the base of Ridgetop. Where can we get away with taking a flattie that has open headers out for some testing around here?????

    Hah! Damn, youre close. I'm right past the "Welcome to Silverdale" sign where Newberry meets Silverdale Way.

    It's tough on open headers. Mason Lake might be okay on a weekday as is Lake Tapps. Alder Lake in Peirce County is good. Lake Cushman has been okay for some in the past. Not sure if it still is. The Snohomish River is really popular with the gang but obviously is a bit of a drive for you and I.

    The bay here is good if youre not afraid of the salt water. You wont have a problem there unless its something like Whaling Days.

    Hi guys, your are right about Mason Lake. We have a place on the lake and during the weekends you really have to pick the right time to roll. I go first about 7 or 8 am or durring dinner time 5 to 6 after that people just cruse the shore to check things out. I terrorize the lake in my 74 Skagen flat runnin a Fe Ford motor, lots of fun but I got to tell ya those wakeboard boats throw a hellava big so be carfull if you come down.
