Most likely no. The engine is sitting lower than it will when it's actually in place.

nice work, Herb. Glad to see you're still making progress on the build. Love the Chevelle. As I said in the other thread, it's just got a great mean look to it. Good luck!

Thanks Trey! Progress has been and still is slow but if I keep at it, eventually, it'll be done!

Last week I got my freshly ported AFR heads, Holley intake, and custom solid roller cam from Straub Technologies.

The short block has been together for a while but it consists of a Brodix aluminum block, a Scat lightweight 4340 crank, Scat 4340 6.535" H-beam rods, Diamond pistons with ceramic coating on top and DFL on the skirts. The rod and main bearings are also coated with DFL. ARP main and head studs finish it off.

A couple of pics of these beautiful pistons.

The rotating assembly.

The full short block ready to go.

The AFR 305 heads that are now so much more.

Intake port.

Exhaust port.

The intake system is this Holley HP EFI.

Fortunately I sent the intake along with the heads to be port matched... and the ports were off to one side enough that they required epoxy to bring them back in line.

Here is it mocked up.

I'm waiting for a few more parts to arrive and then it's on to actual assembly time.

Looks like art to me!
If that doesn't stir some emotions it should be mancard reassessment time.
Any power estimates?

Thanks! The goal was 800 hp at the flywheel and according to the calculations it should exceed it by a bit. So, we'll see what happens.

Herb, if I weren’t so invested in my new 434” ls build, I would build exactly what your doing there. Very nicely done sir!
I have a good friend who completed a Brodix build last year for his 70’ Chevelle. It’s a 632” that makes 904 to the tire on pump gas, and well over a grand on race gas. Drives great on the street, and doesn’t overheat.

Thanks Dad!!

My Chevelle is old school... It has a belt driven power steering pump.
They're 17's, but I keep em clean!
