    Motivational Engineering began with the vintage 350 cylinder block, looking for nothing more than a safe, strong rebuild peppered with specks of go-fast stuff. Mike Saiki put the machinework and requisite balancing act on Team C in nearby Bellflower. Then he gathered up the stock steel crankshaft, connecting rods, and forged aluminum pistons (10:1) and put them in the cradle. He linked the Isky camshaft to the crank snout with an Edelbrock geardrive system. That way he'd have both ends of the power module geezing, whirring, and sounding way off color and bumptious. The valvetrain is composed entirely of Iskenderian components, from the 280 Mega camshaft (0.485 lift, 232 degrees duration at 0.050 inch, and a 108-degree centerline) and the hardware to the hardened pushrods and the 1.5:1 roller rockers. He took the path less traveled with the cylinder heads, though, reviving some vintage camel-hump castings with screw-in rocker studs, guide plates, 2.02 intake valves, and Isky springs. The ignition is Pertronix but it looks stock. To maintain the sleeper motor aura, Mike used an Edelbrock Performer matched with a Holley 750-cfm vacuum-secondary carburetor and connected it to the cowl-induction cold-air intake. The boom tubes begin with Hedman headers and end with a Flowmaster True Dual exhaust system as plumbed by Mike's Performance Exhaust in Los Angeles. A Centerforce Dual Friction 11-inch clutch assembly winds torque to the Rock Crusher transmission, thence to a Cook's Machine Works (Los Angeles) driveshaft to the 12-bolt holding 3.73s and a Tom's Differentials-modified Eaton differential.
