    Default My engine [Expired Topic]

    Here's what's going in the truck in a few weeks:

    383
    Eagle crank and rods
    Speed Pro Pistons
    Comp High Energy 260R cam (212@ 0.050", 0.440" int./exh.)
    World S/R Torquer Heads
    Comp Magnum roller-tipped rockers
    Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold
    BG Speed Demon 650 carb
    Dynomax Cerama-Coat long-tube headers

    All in all, should be fun. Even with the small cam, I'm estimating 400 hp at the crank. I'll post a vid from the dyno run when it happens.

    That should give you quite a bit of power! What do you plan on using your Burban for?

    I'm basically just going to turn it into a cruiser. Imagine a '60s muscle car Pro Touring philosophy applied to a Suburban, and that's it. I'll still use it to tow my boat, though.

    And BTW: this is a "training" motor. After I take care of the rest of the vehicle, I plan on pulling it and putting it in my girlfriend's old Cherokee (after I buy her something new, of course ). At that point, I want to drop in a 427 small-block with a nasty set of heads and cam, and also run a big nitrous shot on it too looking for about 900 horses. Imagine a Sub beating Supras on a dyno, and you have the idea.

    That's what it sounds like to me! A street-rod Suburban. Very cool.

    Can't wait to see it.
    Some people call me the space cowboy ... some people don't.

    We used to call these "sleepers" when they get built like that.
