The first question you should find an answer for is how are you going to communicate all that power to the ground? Just spinning the tires without quickly going forward is a useless waste of rubber and effort.
Oh wait, you forgot to mention...

393CID plus the new heads.... plus 4-6psi from the blower should make traction completely nonexistent
Fun :jester:

Glad you are sorting sht out. Hopefully now that you just spent money on the stuff they need to complete it they'll move with a purpose.
Now you have a reason to look at traction control a little more seriously too.

Sure..
Try looking for a weiand oil pan first.Then maybe the windage tray may be a little easier to find.

Been a while since I gave you guys an update, the machine shop is painfully slow... they still have the entire assembly, guy is really OCD it seems.

Good news - the block is nice and square and will NOT need a line bore after he put the studs in and checked it.

Bad news - he is still not done, the guy is so picky that he is matching every bore to a specific piston based on taper and blah blah.....

It is getting done just at a much slower pace than i would like it too be.

The machine I use is much the same way. He has done two jobs that were "toy" jobs and one that was a DD repair. The toy mustang jobs took months, the DD repair he turned around in 3 days. He knew it was important to me as far as work and family goes so he pumped it out quick.

Hopefully all comes out well.

In car related news, I am buying quality parts for the 393.. I figured a major part that i have cheaped out on in the past in the harmonic damper.. so this time I plan to run an Innovators West #204 with flying magnet cover. I am debating on buying the IW sensor bracket for $150 or just making my own. But the quality balancer is happening.

Unless of course someone has a better option for me....

soooo i ran into a guy that told me the balancer makes all the difference.... can you buy a balancer for a stock block SBF? im guessing there different types for internal and external types of engines.
