Yay we're on page 2. :D (I like to break up the long list of pics, lol.)

Here is the Engler fuel injection going on those heads.















According to Bob at All Pro, the 3" butterflies are necessary, otherwise the injection will be limiting the heads.

3" butterflies. 8 of them. Apparently 2.900" butterflies are noticeably more restrictive. One of those butterflies is bigger than the throttle bodies on most cars. :haha:

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
BUT Torque is how far you take the wall with you!!

Guaranteed to make it off the dyno and into the bed of your truck. :D

The reasoning for that is pretty simple. Some people are idiots.
We had one guy blow up 3 motors in a row. Why? The bellhousing on his transmission was bent, and it shook the thing so bad that it broke the block. To find this, we actually had him bring the transmission and driveshaft into the shop to locate the problem.

great call on that diagnosis tony - because like anyone else, naive and stupid probably wouldn't have thought about whats connected just that he spent good money and has is eager to point a finger. :thumbsup:

great pics btw and so loving this..... i'm just dying to show you all the pics of what my 50 taper horizontals do to 100 lb stainless forging.... my customer told me not to promote it on our website because its ''''special''' i machine a valve body used in medical and waste water fields that looks as good as your polished ports.... :P

and takes damn near 3 1/2 hours to do it so that baby is costly and repeat orders monthly. :thumbsup:

It's not the finish of the ports that matter as much as the shape of them. ;)
It's all about the air flow. This system is so direct that you will be able to open the butterfly and see the intake valve. Mechanical 16 nozzle injection system feeding methanol to a nearly 900hp 410ci small block chevy. Builds like this one are the ones I LOVE to see, expect more pictures of this motor, including the possibility of a dyno video. :D

Gotta love when you are working on engines where each cylinder is 1 1/4 times the size of my whole engine. Lovin' this.

Crap... I think there is more demand than supply at this point.

OH! We got a package in from Jammer's neighbor. 4 of them actually.

Got a frame painted. Not 100% sold on the color yet. It's supposed to be blue, but it looks a lot like purple indoors and on camera.
