    Re: "One Off" 409 Chevy Induction

    Is that a chevy block or one of the new World Products blocks?

      Nick, I had a Merlin, World Products, block and heads in the Studebaker. I never worked it like it could have been worked.

        Nick,
        Nice job on the morph to the 409. Raw castings can be a challenge to fixture and machine without the production equip. and tooling. Looking forward to the results!

          It's a 3/4" ID so that should be sufficient for 650hp on this project. I didn't run any calculations of what is supposed work on this one. It was just a matter of what is the biggest that will physically fit, have enough wall thickness to drill for injectors, and look correct.
          Again a bit late but the Ford Duratec V6 uses a very very similar setup for the fuel injectors. Ford uses a regular steel pipe (probably thick wall) with injector cups braised on feeding the two banks. I like the 3/4in aluminum tube idea but a fall back might be the same idea as the Ford.

          Enjoying your work! I'm enjoying futzing around with my mill trying to make steel brake caliper brackets, nowhere near what you are doing and capable of!

              Awesome machine work and beautiful car. But, I don't like shrouding the intake with that cover! Maybe its to stay with the custom theme of the build but I would want to show off that intake!

                I have searched a few times, did anyone remember a six pack injection setup thread or was it just an avatar for someone? Dont want to derail this one, just thought whoever did that one would be paying attention here.

                  Nick,

                  I would like to talk with you about a sheet metal intake for a blown v6. What's a good time/day to talk?

                      I agree it's a shame to hide it. I bet the same thing could have been done with a standard single 4 barrel intake and a fancy upper
