    IMG_2579.JPG I have just about 60 miles on the new budget 430 that replaced the grenaded 455. Figured Id post a pic of the build and specs.
    69 430 .030 over
    Main oil to 5/8 with other oiling mods
    Stock bottom end with ARP rod bolts
    Stock 430 heads with 3 angle no porting
    Rough estimate 8.7:1
    T/A 284-88h
    SP1 with demon 750 or 850?
    Stock manifolds to 2 1/2
    Th400 with stockish converter and 3.73s

    Pulls hard enough for now, gotta see what this runs next spring....going to start gathering good stuff for the next 455.

    I think there should be more regal BBB combinations out there also. I like these builds.

    I may have something to add to this section of the site this coming spring.

    I prefer the Regals with small blocks.

    That would be nice to see. I love these projects. I had so much fun building my 30+ year dream.
