Re: Intake Manifold....

Yes, but remember, it is going to end up displacing 354 cubes. I plan on a 5500 max, even though it will have a solid camshaft.

Re: Intake Manifold....

What I would like to know is how the hell did UPS manage to break a cast iron manifold?!! :roll: It was two fold and actually ended up being a good thing. First the shipper packed it good. Not great, just good. Secondly, UPS somehow dropped it on concrete. The concrete powder was still on the box a...

Re: Intake Manifold....

Here is my mannyfold after being broken by UPS, repaired by a good friend cleaned primed and painted. Those are carb adapters that will allow me to run 2 GM 2GC two barrel carbs. Since they come in a array of flow numbers, all the way to 600 CFM each, I should have no trouble finding a pair to zoom ...

If they would just do that with the Wrangler, they'd have a winner.

Nope. It's still available. I actually went to look at it and chew the fat with the guy. It's real complete. He seems like a straight shooter too. He builds rods. Gotta lotta cool stuff.

Re: 331 "W" Block limits

Thanks George. But like I said, unless it sonic tests to where I can go over 354 STD, it's not gonna get bored that far. I will just trade off these NOS pistons for some 331 pistons, or sell them outright. Thanks for all the info yall. If I had the choice of .030 & 8.5 vs maxed out & 9:1, I'd go .0...

Re: 331 "W" Block limits

I would never think about going to 4". And I will not go to the 354 bore size without a good sonic check. And I mean good enough to go 354 over size. I want to keep this a while. Thanks for that info George. Everything I had found showed 331 truck only. what literature do you have, btw?

Re: 331 "W" Block limits

George wrote:In theory, if it has 354 casting #, and it really is just an underbored 354 w/o any wall thickness adjustments, you should be able to bore to 4.000. 331s that were 55 & earlier shouldn't go past 354 std bore. A 354 typically can go to 4.00
Where does the '56 331 truck block fit in that theory?

Re: 331 "W" Block limits

Unless the bores are badly rusted and corroded on the water jacket side or there's an unusual amount of core shift, a '56 331 heavy-truck block should be perfectly safe taken out to the 354 3.94 bore size. Most standard passenger car 331 blocks would be pretty thin and about maxed out, bored to 3.9...

Re: 331 "W" Block limits

Well I will certainly find out when I have mine sonic checked. With all that I have read, it varies from block to block and there is no hard and fast rule. Take the engine above. It was into the water jacket, yet was a running engine. Obviously, it had cylinder support. At 4.040, he is .022750 OVER ...

Re: Chrysler Group Brings Back SRT Brand

But none of the cars sound good anymore. When the Shelby GT 500 came back out a few years ago, one rode by us one day in Macon. My son was havin a fit talkin about how "mean" it sounded. I could barely hear it go by. Well.....just so happens one of my old friends happens to be a Mustang guy and has ...
