To ensure we would always have plenty of power, we used an Optima Red Top SC75U battery. To button up the valvetrain, we decided to go with a retro look, so we contacted Billet fabrication, and they sent us a set of their intense billet aluminum SBC valve covers. These valve covers are used on tons of NASCAR engines but rarely seen on street cars. A Holley 110-gph high-performance mechanical fuel pump provides the go juice from the new exact reproduction Quanta gas tank and sender out back. Right Stuff Detailing provided us with a new fuel line and clips, and Pure Choice Motorsports provided a set of their stainless steel braided fuel lines.

After the engine was built, it was loaded onto the Stuska Track Master Dyno Cart and hooked up to the dyno. Dyno technician Chris Harvey then put the 393ci engine through its paces. After a full day of tuning, testing, and trying different carburetor and carburetor spacers, sweet success finally arrived with our final tally at 475 hp at 5,700 rpm and 489 lb-ft of torque-not bad for a pump gas mouse motor.

That's it for this month, folks. Until next time, as always, we hope to see you out there in the "Taillight Zone."
