  1. The link in the previous post is really part 2 of a two part article. The 1st part can be found here: https://www.powerperformancenews.com/tech/the-missing-link-v6-cam-test/ The race parts from GM were for 4.3's without the balance shaft. None of my engines have the balance shaft. This link sheds some light on the balance shaft that GM incorporated to smooth the inherent unbalance of V6's.
  2. Those interested in how a "much-closer-to-stock" 4.3L V6 performs might be interested in this article from September 2017. https://www.powerperformancenews.com/tech/4-3l-storm-warning-v8-power-from-your-v6/
  3. I put a 383 cu in SBC into my Z car in 1995. It soon became apparent to me that the car needed less weight more than it needed more horsepower. I was aware of the Chevy 4.3L V6 since the debut of the GMC Syclones and Typhoons. https://www.caranddriver.com/archives/gmc-syclone-vs-ferrari-348ts-archived-comparison-test The NASCAR Truck Series was also using V6's at the time. Factory involvement means factory subsidized research and development and high tech exotica as close as your dealer's parts counter, such as this 74 lbs engine block with massive 4-bolt main caps and the capacity to go as large as 320 cu. in.
  4. These headers require that the brake master cylinders be moved to the driver's side of the firewall. Commercially available examples of this can be seen at: http://tiltonracing.com/product-category/brake/pedals/.

    Noob Question

    My vote for post of the year!
  6. I guess the plastic motor doesn't weigh much.
  7. If you aren't constrained by the rules why not move it to in front of the LCA to put the rod in tension?
  8. I heard this a long time ago. . . "If it breaks, make it stronger. If it doesn't break, make it lighter."
  9. I've followed your journey since you've started. Thanks for sharing it with us. Reminds me of an old saying I once heard. . . "nothing hard is ever easy!" You have said very little about the specifics of the engine build. Post #244 has the dyno results and I was wondering if you could share with us the camshaft specs? Thanks
  10. Would you share with us the specs of your custom ground billet cam, please?
