car has about 900 miles on her. love the color and man the interior is about as nice as anything i have been in.

car is in for some mods that include a new long block in the 426 inch area. based off the stock 6.1 block.
heads are almost done. moving about 400 cfm peak at this point with a 2.100 intake and 1.59 exhaust.
will have a converter/exhaust/intake also.
she is fully coated with polydyn coatings. so i am expecting some decent numbers from this one.

last one made 610/645 and was uncoated.



here is some eye candy

I saw this one on display last week...first one i have seen up close. It has the 6.1. All I can say is, seeing one "in the Flesh" is alot more exciting than pictures. It's almost "surreal"..lol

better take more pictures of it like that. The restorers 20 years from now will be arguing the paint coverage on the frame rails as shown!

Man...what kind of HP numbers are you expecting? I would have guessed much more than 620 hp with 400 cfm heads....

I take it these are stock ported heads?

I will have the flow sheets scanned before the end of the week.

This is a production 6.1 head with our own valve job, portwork and camshaft. The 2.08 valve outflowed a 2.100 Manley Valve by several CFM across the curve. It's a shame we are only running a .577 lift cam. If I could get a .650 lift solid roller into it, point more compression and an adjustable rocker this thing would make stooopid power.

last one made 620 on a mild 218/224 cam...
im only looking for 550 or so at the wheel on this one.
drivetrain eats up about 18 percent. so that would or should be around 650 or so.
cam is still mild...this is a computer friendly design.
223/227 .577 lift 114 lsa

heads move air. those numbers where on our bench. you know how that can change.
stock they where in the 330 range.

i also agree...needs a good turbo kit.

converter uses pairs of two bolts. total of 6.

converter used is a reworked stock case. case is an unuasual shape and ois about 9.5 inches in diameter...stock. internals are differant. about 2800 stall.

converter is alot deeper than a normal converter you might be used to seeing.
