I never had a build thread for this car so I thought I would post some pics of the car since it is near completion. Just have some small stuff I want to do yet, like reroute coolant tubes, Install headers and finish my custom exhaust, along with some body mods.

I am now starting on cutting the trunk section out to make room for some flowmaster 40 series mufflers. Here is the trunk before I start the cutting.

Here is the trunk after I cut it out. I am going to fabricate a piece of metal to weld in across the opening so I will still have a small trunk area. Should have enough room for some fold out chairs to take to the car shows when it is done.

Thanks Kyle,
Just keep me posted on your engine, so I'll know how much time I will have on your engine swap.

Oh Yes, Big plans and big money.

This past weekend I was racing a Grand National and "I stomped the dog snot out of him" But in the process when I slammed 3rd gear the engine let out some really nasty clanging and banging and I felt that I dropped a cylinder, and the smoke that came after was a dead give away. Needless to say I broke a valve spring and dropped a valve into the #6 cylinder, the valve broke and through the piston she went, not to mention all the damage to the cylinder wall. The block is junk. Anybody need a $4000.00 paper weight. Not much I could do about it when the engine is turning 7000 rpm.

But you should have seen the look on his girlfriends face and his after being wooped by a fiero. "Priceless"

For everything else there's "MasterCard"

So now I'm going back to the old drawing board and going to build a bigger and better engine. I'll probably spend another 5 grand on building the new engine, but it's only money, I can't take it with me when I die, So why not enjoy it. I'll take some pictures of the paper weight when I get a chance.

I just purchased another 350 engine today that I am going to use as the foundation for my new engine build. I spoke with my machine shop and told him what I wanted to get out of this and this is what we came up with. If our calculations are correct, this set up should give me over 500hp and over 500 ft lbs of torque.

4340 Forged steel crankshaft - 4.000" stroke
4340 Forged H-beam rods
Mahle Forged pistons
Mahle file fit rings
Dura-bond cam bearings
Block plug kit
Solid roller camshaft
True double roller timing set
Melling high volume oil pump
Melling oil pump drive shaft
Melling oil pump pickup
Solid roller lifters
AFR CNC ported aluminum heads
ARP Head bolts
7/16 screw in rocker studs
Comp cam push rods and guide plates
Aluminum full roller rocker arms
Edelbrock Victor Jr manifold
New 12pt bolt kit
Block sonic checked for thickness
Block pressure tested @40 psi
Block stroker clearanced
Block square decked w/BHJ fixturing
Aligned hone mains
Bored and honed w/torque plates
All clearances checked to the nearest .0001
Rotating assembly balanced
Engine blueprinted

So I told him LETS DO IT!!!!

He jumped on the phone and started placing the orders for the parts. Some of the parts should arrive on Friday and the rest will arrive early next week. I am going to take some pictures of the new engine I just bought before I start the teardown.

I hope everybody will watch the progress of this build.

Who wants dibbs on riding shotgun for the first ride?

We are going to try a couple different cams to see which one we will get the best results with. One of them is a Lunati with a 290 duration and a .555" lift and the other is a comp cam with a 288/296 duration and a .630" lift. Or after the dyno results I might want something a little more streetable.

Well, here are the pictures of the engine I am going to use as the foundation for this torque monster. I know it don't look like much now, but keep watching as this engine build progresses.

Okay, after tearing down the engine and cleaning it up some I found out that it is not a 350. It is a 305 HO out of a 86 camero.



After talking with my boss (my wife) we decided to make this engine a budget build. I am still going ahead with the torque monster build, but we are going to put that into another fiero we have our eye on. Our plan with the torque monster build is to have this powerplant mounted to a 6 speed trans. This build is going to take about a year or so to do with all the fabricating and body mods that we want done.

So for now I am going to start another thread for this 305 build. Its going to be called "sbc screamer budget build" So watch for the new build thread.

As for this thread I purchased a 350 block from my machine shop and he started the preparing of the block and has got a shipment of the parts we are using. The next shipment should be hear tomorrow. I didn't get over there this weekend to take any pics because I was working on Dozol's car and had to get him some pics to post on his thread. I'll try and get there tomorrow to get some pics to post of the engine and parts.

More to come.....

I know this is just an ignorant question but where do you find the stamp on the engine so you know its a 305. I see it in the pic but want to be sure when I get to buying a 350 I dont end up with a 305 by mistake. is it someplace easly see while its still in the car/truck?
