Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Re: Need cam for 454 BBC
« on: October 05, 2014, 06:21:57 AM »
Decided to just stay with the headers.

52
The 454 that I have now in my sleek is a 2 bolt main. Seems to run perfect.

53
Just ran some numbers, its not a  427 its a 396. The guy wanting to sell it tells me its a 427 but he wasn't sure.

Back of block numbers are 3916323
Front of block are two sets of numbers on passenger side of block, here they are. T1017ED and then 18K124384
On the back of the block it also says HI-Perf Truck Pass.

The damn thing runs REAL good the way it is, thinking I'll just leave it alone and add some bling to it. I do have a line on a 427 that I might throw some cash at.

Are you saying look on the front pad for numbers? I will go out today and see if I can get more numbers off of it, there kind of hard to read like they did a crappy job of molding them in there.

I looked under the valve covers and the last three numbers on the heads are 049, I guess they are the high flow type of oval port heads.

Cant find the head numbers they must be under the valve covers and I will have to check them this weekend. The block number is 3999289 and the intake number is 393841. I run both logs and snails and headers.

I ran the numbers on the block last night and it shows it's a 1978 two bolt main. If I read it rite it's only 215 horse but I'm not sure. I will need to find out about the heads. I do know there oval port and a stock intake. Not sure on compression or cam. Does this sound rite so far?

I have a stock 454 BBC with a mild cam in my 79 Rebel. I would like to install a more aggressive cam and gain a little more rpm's. What would you guys recommend.

Engine Mechanical / Electrical / Horse power- Headers vs logs
« on: September 18, 2014, 07:55:35 PM »
Been discussing this with a friend and he seems to think that you can get more performance out of the logs than a set of headers. His understanding is that the logs have more back pressure, my understanding is that headers help in more horse power. This is on a 454 chevy engine that has a mild cam, its in my 79 sleekcraft rebel. I like the headers cause they look badass but are noisy as hell and I guess cause of the noise and looks they seem to make more power, its in the mind I know................

I might put the logs on tomorrow and see if the boat has the same top speed as when using the headers, maybe that will tell me something.
