Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

Not sure you could even make the comparison between a SBF and a normally aspirated flathead. Two different animals.

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

Not sure why, but 4-71 seems to work better for the snouts are easier to come by. A 3-71 snout that works for a flathead is like hen's teeth.

You may be interested to read about Barney Navarro's work with small displacement flatheads. He de-stroked some of his blown engines to fit into different race classes, but I believe he also...

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

Haha. Yes they do. My Smith "jiggler" suggestion was in the spirit of keeping it a flathead.

In all my travels, I only saw one pair of Smith Jigglers and it was at Hershey. It was in the...

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

In thinking of this, would a Smith-type "jiggler" head that placed the intake valve over the piston to allow for a higher lift/larger valve in order to get more air into the motor help?

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

For exactly this reason, in the 90's someone sold alky-only racing heads that had no water outlets or jackets. They were a billet slab and the customer could choose their own compression ratio. ...

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

Pete,

How much of jump does that 10% represent in your typical race motors? Are we talking another 20-30 hp just from fuel & tune?

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

I'm with you on this, Tony. Those numbers seem really optimistic. There is book written by George Nichols (I believe) and he uses a similar dyno program. Every cam he put into the program had...

I know he's busy getting ready to head out west to Bonneville, but I'd really like Ronnie Roadster to jump in on the bearing cap support part of the this discussion.
