great for the first 5 mins, but get really annoying after that. plus the harmonics they produce and then send through the valvetrain just aint good news

I'm fitting Pete Jackson gears to my project motor (the quiet cut ones) I think the S/C will make enough noise :lol:
I'm using an early style timing cover (to fit the CVR water pump) but the same applies to the late model cover, you have to grind or machine the oil deflector on the inside and maybe a bit on the block..

Check the link in my signature I've got some photos there that show what I had to do. :shock: .

Hmmmmm as much as I can squeeze out of it. :lol:

I'll be turning up a couple of different sized pulleys for the blower and keep the boost low for everyday cruising (looking around 250rwkw @ 5-6psi).

But I'll see how much I can get out of it when I jack up the boost, see if I can't hit the 500hp, 500ft/lb mark :shock: but thats pushing the stock block.

I'm on the lookout for a cheap aftermarket 302 or a 351 in case I split this block :roll: but the idea is to keep it streetable and reliable.
I want to get a pop-up camper down the track which is why I'm chasing as much torque as I can get, so you might see me over there in a couple of years as I haven't done WA and NT yet. :wink:

If you're after different sized pulleys, i have a 3.15" that i took off to get a 2.95".
250rwkw should not be a problem with the stroker and blower, s**t i was making 212rwkw on 5PSI.
