If that's the gray boat (mine) the wood should be white oak. I do like the idea of the gray inside with the carbon, goes with the motor.Not sure this shot was supposed to get out, as I think its magic how the carbon gets in there??? but I think this is going to be an interesting combo, black carbon over gray with wood??? I heard the wood is going in today??? not sure what kind???
Thanks, but not all the pretty is on the outside! Just got the heads back from Grose Racing Engines and they're gorgous! Joey did a helluva job on the ports and chambers. That picture is just a mock up to make sure everything fits. Just as an FYI, The motor is 14:1 CR, Cam is Howards 4/7 swap, duration @ .050 is 277 deg. intake and 283 exhaust, lift is .810 int/.765exh . We are going to go with Jesel shaft rockers (1.7:1 ratio) because of spring pressure (250 seat/800@lift). The manifold is an Edelbrock Victor Ram 2R that Joey ported to match the heads, carbs are Holley 0-80920 Gen 3 Ultra Dominators. These things are infinately adjustable and I think we're going to need that to de-tune it!!! Ignition is all MSD, Pro-Billet distributor, 7al-2 box, coil is an HVC. We have yet to call Lemons to get the headers made but that's coming soon! Now you know just about as much about the motor as I do!:yikesHoly schmoly!!! that is sum pretty motor!!!!!
HenryIt's a good thing I don't live closer to you guys Rickybobby! I'd be another "Hang around" at the shop hoping to get patched!
The work these guys put out is absolutely incredible. I would LOVE to volunteer my spare time just sweeping the floors at the shop HOPING some of their knowledge would come my way.
You're a lucky guy; you have a great opportunity being able to spend time with these fellas.
Thanks for posting and keeping the rest of us in the loop!
