Bump to Wednesday. Any offers or trades?
Im still in on the top half
Thanks for the reply and I will PM you first, if I find a buyer for the lower end. Jim
I still haven't found anyone waiting the complete engine and I do not want to sell it in parts. I will include a near new 1095 CFM King Demon RS Dominator with a complete set of new ets, a bunch of new bleeds, new gaskets and assortment of new power valves, along with a near new Aeromotive Platium series regulator to sweetin the deal. Thats about $2000 worth of fuel stuff. I will still consider trades, Jim
I don't see the static compression ratio listed. What is it? Was the engine set up to run pump gas (90 octane, in my case)?
Also, where is it located right now?
I do not have the data sheets with me at work today but I am pretty sure it was 11 to 1 and it was set up to run on pump 92. My 573 CI engine, 11:5 to 1 runs fine on pump 92. The Aluminium heads are a big factor to allow higher compression with pump gas. The engine is located in Murrieta California.
You can find 92 octane pump gas in California???
What ever is the high octane pump gas. Maybe its 91 maybe 90, don't study the pump but the 850 HP 573 with 11.5 to 1 compression, works fine on pump gas.
Sorry for putting 92, wasn't trying to mislead anyone, Jim
No problem, Jim. I must admit, though, I was hoping you would say "yes". The 90 octane at my local gas stations needs octane booster to allow my built 9.58:1 Buick 350 to accellerate without pinging.
Do you have aluminium heads of your car? I was told my Jim at PAE that the aluminium heads is what allows higher compression without pinning. I also had a 10.5 to 1, 340 bored to 350 CI, built with hypertec pistons, big cam, 350 rods and ported heads and it ran fine on pump gas.
Unfortunately, there are no aluminum heads available for the Buick 350. To make matters worse, the chamber design of the factory heads is very sensitive to C/R's.
I'll tell you what, though. My car ran like gangbusters when I went to Georgia in 2007 and pumped some of their 93 octane premium into it. No octane booster required.
It's amazing just how much difference 2 octane points makes as far anti-knock capabilities are concerned (our local gas was 91 octane back then - still needed booster at 91, though).
Still have the engine as the trade I was expecting fell out. Any offers?
pm me what you want for the shortblock.
I am amazed that no one has snapped up this motor.
I am guessing that it sounds incredible!
I do not want to see photos...I want the soundtrack
at idle and then wailing at the redline!!!
Now my question: What kind of tires are you using to
gain any sort of street traction?
I can see how with the appropriate NON DOT racing
slicks how tht power could be applied but:
Even with my meager 464 putting out 362rwhp/435rwtq
I have trouble getting power to the pavement...
What is your tire/suspension secret?
Jim Is this still available?
Shortblock still available?
