Picked up the win in pro bracket this weekend. 85 degrees out and the engine never missed a beat.

Congrats on the win. Did I ever tell you bracket racers drive me crazy? Have you looked at the plugs yet?

People whose cars sit most of the year drive me crazy.

Yes but I've never had much luck reading plugs on E85. I think its a little fat.

My car sits through the winter, but when it warms up I beat the living sh$$ out of it. Winter also lets me repair the broken stuff, like the 8 3/4 and fuel pump this year.

Dustin,
I am in the process of doing one of these for my 63 belvedere. I have a couple of questions for you, what flexplate did you use, does the old converter bolt up to it? What cam did you use is it something custom or available to purchase. Thanks

Ron

ATI flex plate. I had to drill out for the larger size bolt, otherwise it bolted right up to my old converter.

Camshaft is custom.

Wow, lookin sharp dude! I have a Q, people seem to be kinda all over the place on what these things weigh, I cant remember what you had for power before but have you weighed it with the Gen III?

Haven't had a chance. Possibly this weekend if the weather holds out. It should be 3400+ it was R3 small block before.

All I know is that I had an unmachined R3 and a bare 5.7 block side by side.
My back would tell you that the 5.7 was pretty close to the R3 weight. 15 to 25 lbs difference.

So glad I stumbled upon this thread. Last weekend I broke a couple rods in my small block stroker as well, and have decided to go the exact same route. I'm sure I'll be trying to pick your brain along the way. To go the rest of this race season I'm just dumping in a stock Magnum 360 from a 98 Durango with a carb, then the fun will begin...

My machinist commented multiple times about how heavy my 5.7 block was. I'm not expecting much difference.

3480# with me in it this weekend at Mission Raceway in British Columbia.

It's within 10-20# of my R3 I think.

106 or 108, I'd have to check the cam card to be sure.
