When I started building my 64 fairlane, it was going to be a 408w, with AFR 205 nitrous port heads, a 250 shot fogger, and a 4 speed. After bench racing, and too many beers, my power desires have changed.
My goal for the car is an 80% street driven, 93 octane pump gas car that will run close to an 8.50 quarter. I drew the line at 8.50 because I don't want to put a F/C cage in the car.
I am now planning on a 427W, with a procharger 1500 hp A/A intercooler, F2 side slinger, a C&S blow thru, and a built AOD w/ 4r70w gearset. The car has a mustang II front, ladder bar rear, and is mini-tubbed to a fit a 12.5” wide tire. The car also has a glass trunk, hood, fender, bumpers, and will soon get glass doors. I don’t know about weight yet, but I am hoping for about 3200lbs + driver.
I have acquired a Dart 4.0 bore IE block, a lunati pro series 4.0 stroke crank, Lunati 6.2 pro billet rods, the F2, the blow thru, the intercooler, a edelbrock super victor 9.5 deck intake, the AOD, and a 3.25 gear 35 spline lenco locker 9” in a strange case.
I also have a new set of AFR 205 heads with the larger 80cc exhaust, and a set of jesel sportsman 1.6 rockers to go with them and a set of Kooks 2" primary headers with AFR flanges that I was going to make fit.
I have not purchased pistons or a cam.
I had originally thought that stepping to an AFR 225 with 72cc chambers would be enough head and allow me to use the headers and roller rockers and have large enough chambers to keep the compression down. After doing some research here, it appears that I may be better off with a different set of heads.
I would like to get some recommendations for heads, valves, springs, lifters, cam, and compression ratio. This is my first boosted car, so any other info is greatly appreciated. I purchased Steve’s video’s to get me started, but my head is spinning with questions.
