    old school build question


    Members do not see advertisements
    How much horse power would I need to build to move a stage 1 or early stage 2 monster? I came across a D0VE-A 429/460 block in great shape with 2 bolt mains. Planed on getting 4 bolt mains drilled, tapped and line bored, cylinders punched out .030 over, getting a forged rotating assembly, Kaase super cobra jet heads and a Weiand tunnel ram intake with dual holly quads. Would that all be sufficient?

    Plenty. Not sure what you plan on doing with this truck but there are ride trucks out there with stock 350 Chevys.

    oh really? I was worried that i would need a lot of power to move the 66's. I plan on just using the truck to do some car crushes, go thru mud, would love to get it to float... but im far from anything now. Im still looking for axles and tires
