Leaburn: How hard would it be to:
« Reply #15 on: September 21, 2009, 11:51:19 AM »

As,Snotty mentioned,...the mopar crate engines are being ignored! These are one of the best deals out there and they actually produce a 408" version w/ 435 hp and 475 lbs of torque w/ over 400 ft.lbs from 2,500 to 5,700 rpm for a little over $6,000. NOW that's impressive!!! I built my stroker from a +.040 340 block and 4.00" stroked crank which equals 418"s. This is the largest you can build without going to the R-3  or simmilar block,but they are very strong as there is less load on the cyl's than even the big blocks. The largest small block is actually made from an R3 block and W9 heads which = 476"s. That 435 hp small block is in Hemi territory,....but with a big weight and cost difference!

I knew about the 408. . .   I read a while ago, some dummy went to 440.  I hope it never spun over idle

IIRC, the /6 K frame may need to be changed out and a V 8 one installed in order to use the Schumacher mounts for the B/RB in the Aspen.

Way better off going small block and a 4speed.  The 440 or 383 is just too much weight over the front end and the performance parts for those transverse torsion bar front end set-ups are big $$$. 
 
Keep the weight down over the front wheels and yu will have a more enjoyable all around ride.

So long as you're both on a track....otherwise that ride can get really "uncomfortable" when you find it's wrapped around a telephone pole 'cause the rear kicks out above 45 mph on a sharp curve.

Finding RB headers for that  is going to be impossible! I don't know why everyone is SO hooked on the Big Blocks! There are so many advantages to a small block! I've ran 340's against 440's,455's,454's etc. with my duster and i've spanked plenty! It's all about the combination! A std. 340 weighs 525 lbs while a RB weighs 670! Thats 145 lbs savings over the front end!!! My 418" is light! Add on my ported Eddy's magnums and M1 intake and now it's down to 450-460 lbs.....less than a slant 6! Then you add up the HP at what i est. to be around the 530 mark and put it in that car (maybe 3400 lbs) with some proper mods and you are knocking on the 10.80 et's at 125 mph! Anyone who's ever run in a GOOD small block will attest to that!

It's all about machoism, testosterone, and penis envy.  C'mon, now.  You know Freud believed that BB's had to do with being weaned too early...
