    Dry sump is plumbed and the Holly EFI is wired with a base tune loaded in. The Nasty Performance fabricated valve covers I used on the 408 didn't clear the new rockers so I ordered a new set from All Pro, which will be delivered today. The car cranks but won't turn over- ditched the red top for a new battery and ran a new ground cable. If the starter is shot I'll go with a Tilton.

    This is Frank from Facebook, damn that is bad ass man. Did you build the motor yourself?

    Would love to see more on this car.

    Hey man, thanks. No I had the motor professionally built. I'll have some videos and stuff up once the car is cleaned up and on the dyno.

    I should have upgraded the rods from Callies H to I beams and put a dry sump on the last motor, for the RPMs I was trying to turn. It was a 9 sec NA motor all day long and had more potential left in it. The 408 was 13.6:1 and had TF 235 heads and a big cam in it. From what I was told to expect out of my 440, it would have taken a 250 shot on top of the old motor to equal what this one will make NA.
