My gen 3 project - 04/29/17 06:59 AM

Little update. I was at BES this week checking my header flange fitment and my block was in the boring machine.

We are getting close- Should have it back in a few weeks.

4.060 bore 3.900 stroke 10:1 GEN3 performance block,
thitek heads 2.200 Ti intake valves inconel exhaust
Winberg Crank
Callies ultra billet steel rods
Ross pistons
242/242 .615 .615 @120 cam from Comp

I have a set of billet precision 7675 ball bearing turbos that will make up for the short stroke and low compression. smile

Good to see more Gen 3 aluminum blocks out there. They should all be like that from the factory.
I wonder what improvements the World Products block has over the Mopar block. Probably much more stiffer.

Re: My gen 3 project - 04/30/17 08:30 AM

I know that they use a more robust material and that there is more material overall because the weight over the original.m Mopar block is pretty significant. Something like 20lbs heavier.

You're gonna need some steering column mods once you put the heads on. Then it wont seem so small.

Keep the updates coming.

Josh, what class are you going to run with this combo? Limited DR, Outlaw 275?

Re: My gen 3 project - 05/01/17 04:01 PM

You are correct sir...I cut the other sleeve on the Column and will be looking to relocate the master cylinder even further

Re: My gen 3 project - 05/02/17 09:32 AM

What are you planning for rear gear and trany with this combo? You gonna run a Gearvendor od?
Posted by: joshking440

Re: My gen 3 project - 05/02/17 09:37 PM

2.10 first gear Turbo 400 and a ford 9"with a 3.55 I think. The car runs a 30" tall radial in the back.

I haven't fully decided on the gear vendors. Some people say it needs the floor modified and some say it doesn't. I haven't had to cut to floor up yet and don't really want to do that. And they are not cheap....I've kinda went over budget. Again...
Posted by: Quickrunner

Re: My gen 3 project - 05/03/17 12:07 PM

Going through this right now with a Reid case 400 in my 71 demon build. The floor will need modified for the 400 with a GV on it. they have one for a TF that will fit with "dings" in the floor pan but it has a super long tailshaft adaptor I didn't care for and I wanted a aftermarket SFI case so I didn't need to mess with shields.

I'll post some pics on my build thread of my tunnel mods to fit the GV unit, plan on making sparks this weekend.

And what's another 3k for a build like your doing? LOL

Low rpms on drag week are my main reason I want one.

Nice engine porn! What kind of hp you shooting for with twins on it? You using Holley Dominator for spark & fuel management?
Posted by: joshking440

Re: My gen 3 project - 05/31/17 12:24 PM

I'm guessing it will 1300-1400 pretty handily... with the hydraulic roller cam, I'm not sure what the limit will be and I'm not into speculating.

That hellcat charger that Barton just built made serious power to the tires on 11lbs of boost and a 300 shot of nitrous. Something like 1450

I'm going to be in the 20-25 lbs of boost range so we will just have to see.

I'm using the AEM infinity fuel injection.

I have only Hilti battery tools. The price in kit form isn't to bad and they last for ever.

Absolute art, what's the taper on your intake runners?

I'm not sure. 4.725 is runner length

Re: My gen 3 project - 06/30/17 01:43 PM

Looks great!! What did you go with on a flexplate/flywheel and converter? My Ried bell has starter pocket on both sides, driver side fits standard mopar style mini starter with minor block mods. Not a lot of guys running th400 behind a G3 yet. Curious what route you went?
Posted by: joshking440

Re: My gen 3 project - 06/30/17 06:42 PM

I did the ATI bell and case. I'll let you know how that whole thing stacks up

You'll have to give Josh a day or two to get to this, he's one of the guys involved with the Monster Mopar Weekend this weekend
Posted by: joshking440

Re: My gen 3 project - 07/31/17 09:55 PM

I did just get back from putting on Monster Mopar Weekend. Sorry for the delayed response

The motor plate was a square blank that I drew a radius on and cut out with a band saw and cleaned up with a dynafile. I got my blank from Mike Roth at MR2 performance (765) 483-9371

I do have a few updates but we have been working on the underside of the car and are just now starting headers.

We have a prototype set of the Header flanges from Brian Smith. What an awesome piece.

We had to get some 1 7/8 centerline radius tubes for the primaries and they will be here tomorrow. Hope to give more frequent updates now.

Thanks for the info. Can't wait to see your project all together.
Posted by: 408strokerdart

Re: My gen 3 project - 08/03/17 08:37 PM

Glad they fit well Josh. I placed an order with my machine shop Tuesday for 6 sets in the 1 7/8" primary size. They will be in stock in 4 to 5 weeks. If anyone wants to claim a set (no need to send $) just let me know and you will be one of the first to have them. PM me if you need pricing info. They will only be available in stainless steel unless I get enough interest to justify an order of mild steel flanges.

We are getting closer to welding on them now.

Re: My gen 3 project - 08/15/17 11:39 AM

Update on things please...

I may have missed this, but is this a Mopar block or another manufacturer?

Thanks!

Re: My gen 3 project - 08/18/17 02:11 PM

Awesome build. Did Billy Gilsbach up here in Michigan stretch the rear wheels opening on this car along with some other updates at one time? If so, I remember seeing it in his old shop many years ago.
Posted by: joshking440

Re: My gen 3 project - 08/18/17 11:42 PM

You are thinking of Tonys duster that used to run KOS. That's a different car although one of my favorites.

That car is still in Detroit owned by Tony Masconi It's painted and has a demon tail panel in it now. I think it's blue or purple.

No updates lately. My fabricator has been really busy with his day job as he runs the fab shop at DSR

Re: My gen 3 project - 08/18/17 11:42 PM

We haven't made much progress until the last few weeks. I had decided to finish the inside of my barn and we moved the car from my friends house back to my place.

Headers are done turbos are mounted in place

Re: My gen 3 project - 01/03/18 11:04 AM

How did you determine engine position,did you place it where it best suits for component location or use the standard mounting location on the crossmember or transmission mount?
Posted by: joshking440

Re: My gen 3 project - 01/03/18 06:50 PM

it’s same mopar offset as my big block was.

The car started as a big block 727 then I swapped that out for a t400. When I went gen 3 I stuck the t400 back in the car and mounted the engine the motorplate ended up with in .090 of where it used to be. So I added a mid plate and pushed it forward
