Mama wants to go boating over the 4th for our anniversary, so I need a BBC rectangular port intake quickly. If I can't get one on the way by Wednesday, I'll probably end up ordering a new one but, I really don't want to buy a new one for two or three months of boating.
I thought I was going to get by with new bearings and a freshen up on the 454 from the mini day jet. When I pulled the head, number 5 was chewed up down past the 1st ring groove. Since the heads won't be done for the 440, I pulled the blower off the race engine and will run it without the blower for a couple months or until one of the other engines get done. I doubt the motor will turn past 6000 in the jet boat, even with 12:1 and a full roller set up. I'm not going to mess with cam timing or change the cam for the short run, so just need a manifold that can handle 1500 to 6500 RPMs. What do you have?
I'll be running a Holley 750 DP under a hatch, so no tunnel rams please.
