not want to buy a stroker, but modify existing engine. Suggestions?
Possible? Anyone done this? Links? ect. would be greatly
appreciated. This is a project that needs to be done within 8-10
weeks, as car is then being shipped to London, England.
Thanks, in advance. I know I'll get some great ideas here to
present to new owner and then relay to mechanic who is doing
Follow the link to my web site and go to "Recipe for a 400 HP L98" Has P/N's used, what we did, headwork done, cam, etc.
I actually have over that now...picked up about 25 HP when we did the last rebuild.
Time needed to get it done is a little tight, but if all the parts are available in a few weeks, you should have no problems getting the thing done.
The chip will be the last thing to do. Find someplace where you can chassis-dyno tune the car. After that take it on the road and capture data under different conditions then have them tweak the tune until it is right.
Mine is a HOOT to drive. One of my employees took a ride with me, and I smoked the tires through 4th. He just sat back and could not believe the torque the motor makes. Puts a smile on my face every time I drive it...
