updates . . . well kinda of crappy, dyno guy lost both of his grandparents in a motorhome accident beginning of this week, soo no dyno time till next friday/monday, and i can't wait that long, as i'm racing saturday.

The headers are gonna be a pain to make fit, as the steering needs to be re run, and the brake booster needed to be removed (which i've already taken care of, need to get some u-joint for the steering though).

Ened up having to switch over to electric fuel pump, soo new fuel cell, filter, pump, regulator, all new line, bunch of fittings, ends up being expensive, still need to port match the headers and pound out the tubes around the bolt holes, need to rig up some throttle linkage as the predator runs a funky setup, need to rewire the hole truck for the msd shit, shouldn't be to bad, but time comsuming. Anyway its been a long last couple days and it'll be even longer tomorrow, soooo i'll keep this thread updated, peace out.

Can't wait to see the end result. I too am using the boat anchor/ 400 in my truck. It's bone stock with an edelbrock intake, carb spacer, holley dp and some summit headers. I'm currently cleaning up a different 400 (f'd up the on in the truck). Seems like a decent motor. I'd like a 460 but I have the gears to run the 400 for now.




Good luck

Alrigty had an awesome first outing, had the fastest non rail(blowers nitrous and cut boggers/paddles type of rigs) run of the day, i had no issues with all the new crap i put in the rig, but i do have some issues, anywho i came to found the msd doesn't like my autometer tach and petronix rev. limiter due to the way it gives the signal to the coil, soo i swap the tach to run off the msd 6a box, and i still haven't got the rev limiter to work, gonna try to swap a couple wires around and it should be good to go, if not i'll have to drop some more coin and get something that will work with the msd.

Carberator, well i ran into issues, it was all gummed up, wouldn't give fuel over 3000rpm and it fell flat on its face, sooo i tossed the 750 demon back on it to get it running, and its definately too small, so i have to get the overhaul kit and get the carb rebuilt.

I got the brakes and the steering all sorted out and working better than before soo thats good. but yeah heres a vid of the truck at idle, and i'll be uploading 2 more vids tonight as well:

new motor - Car Videos on StreetFire

When you get it running good, I would love to see dyno results. Is it getting to 7000 rpm yet?

yeah the old motor was hitting 7000, and i've already tickled that mark too. I won't be running it there though as the cam only makes power to 6500ish.

lol still haven't grabbed the cam card, anywho a couple more vids:

Cardston Mud Bog run 2 - Car Videos on StreetFire
cardston mud bog run 3 - Car Videos on StreetFire
cardston mud bog - Car Videos on StreetFire

The one vid you can hear where i loose fuel pickup, so i'm gonna have to do something about that. Also in the one where i launch in to high of a gear i was fully convinced that the old snorkle setup had to go, i was running the spectre single 4" inlet goodies, and its just way to restrictive for my motor, so i grab a 5" tight radius exhaust elbow, followed by a rubber coupling and a rubber 45* elbow and made a new snorkle. The rubber coupling fits perfect over the carb in place of the old spectre unit, then i shoved the 90* bend in the coupling with the 45*elbow connected to that with a short length of 5" muffler pipe with a big ass dry washable filter on the other end of the pipe. It made a BIG difference, truck even idles better with the bigger intake on the thing, aside from the size increase the smoother radius bed leading into the carb throat should increase power as the spectre stuff is just to restrictive on bigger motors.
