Not sure I'll get it done this year.
Need a set of custom headers built.
Need some body work. Small stuff + the front of the rear wheel wells cut out so the Hoosier 29x18.50x15s will fit.
New paint. Not sure yet, but may do a color change.

Plus, I bought another Pinto !
The 302w & T-5 didn't sell. So I have most of what I need for a second build.
Going to try & not be radical on the 2nd build.......  :grin:

FYI....

Dyno work done ! Came in @ 473 HP.
It was run without a windage tray. One is going into it though, so bump that up another 10 HP to 483 HP.

My carb is a 750 double pumper. If for some insane (  ck1 ) reason I want more HP , all I have to do is put an 850 double pumper on for.......over 500 HP.

Going to be one fun car to drive  :grin:

Nice set up Reeves! Are you going to run Avgas?

No "real" choice on running AV gas. Motor has 10.8:1 compression.
Mild cam, but tons of head work.

Needless to say.....not a daily driver  :grin:

It is .020 over & stroked. It is now a 345 ci.

Note: dyno was done on (premium) pump gas.

What's your premium up there 93? Does Canada require that you use ethanol? If so, what is the max %?

We have a couple of stations around here that still sell untainted ethanol free gas in 89 and 93.

I haven't bought gas in years. My truck is diesel & that comes free, with the work I do. So no idea on prices & not sure on octain.
I do think ours is much the same as yours.
Getting harder to find gas without Ethanol. But Sheel premium is free of it. We buy it for the all the small engines here. Tiller, ride on mower etc. Manuals say not to use Ethanol.
Plus it causes a host of problems with anything that goes into long storage.
Most I've seen in gas (and some diesels now) is 10%.

I'll be picking up a small tidy tank to pick up AV (etc) type fuels for my car.
I have about 6 miles of gravel road before the pavement. So I haul the car anyway. So no big deal on hauling fuel.

If I'm on a longer trip with the car, I'll carry an octain booster.

What the builder had to say:

345 Cu. In. pump gas 240 .590 cam Engine. I feel that the most important Dyno numbers are the BMEP,It tells you how efficent the engines is.Reeves ran in the 170s.Modern CHI/ AirFlow Research
head type engines run in those numbers.Very Happy.Mini Plenuim made peak Tq.@5500 423.H.P.@
6500 478 The Stock Intake really runs well.Tq.@4800 403.H.P.@6700 465  E-BOSS Tq@5100 416.
H.P.@6500 473  The E-Boss runs Very close to the Mini Plenuim,and has the best average..The OEM
intake really holds its own,and was the only one that liked to rev.to 7000RPMS and only lost 13HP
to the mini and held its Tq up to the E-Boss!! All Manifolds lost Tq,and gained NO H.P. with 1inch open spacers.E-Boss intake fit best on the engine with the OEM style Felpro1248 gasket. Checkout the videos..Hope this info helps..

In the 5 videos 4 are dyno runs. Last one shows my engine with "touching" the gas.

To de-code what he said.... I let him run a number of tests on my engine. He tried my E-BOSS intake, an OEM intake and a Mini Plenium. All the above with my 750 double pumper Holley.
What was not posted was that he also did tests with an 850 DP. With the 850 my engine would be over 500 HP. But the 750 will have better street manners.

So....

TQ @ 3000 RPM - 358
TQ @ 4000 RPM - 390
TQ @ 5100 (peak) - 414

Peak HP @6500 - 473

One more thing..... dyno was done without the windage tray (new one being installed today).
With the tray my HP is 483.
