  • My new baby arrived today

    As you know I'm 60 and single, so it isn't that kind of baby. I believe this will be the final engine and most anything else done to the Track-T. As much as I enjoyed the torque at low rpm of the 383 sbc, I did miss the high rpm zing of the 355 circle track engine. The 355 had a nasty exhaust bark, radical idle, and the street manners of a gang banger. The 383 had a sweet idle and impeccable street manners plus great mpg. I'm hoping to have a good mix of the attributes of both of those engines for the 427.

    On the engine dyno;

    526.3 HP @ 5700 rpm

    556.2 lb/ft @ 4400 rpm

    516 lb/ft @ 2800
    Short shift, its fun

                          It is sure making some serious power. I see they dynoed it on race gas. Hopefully it will run those numbers on pump swill. Not sure on the thinking on the vacuum secondary carb. At these power levels, I dont see the advantage over a double pumper.

                          In any case, it will be fun in whatever car it goes into. Congrats on the new fun machine.
