Here's a couple of recent video's from my 11.1 to 1 NA, pump gas, TFS 235, hyd cam 427 that Erik built for me. I know the 60's suck but i'm working on it. 138 MPH in 90 degree heat aint so shabby.

Erik built me a 408 about a year ago and had gforce do the tuning. Pretty much the best builder in the US. Made 520 on engine and 6 something on a little shot through auto. Amazing engine, drove it all the way home to ok and got 25mpg at 90+mph all the way. Use hke and gforce and you will be very happy and run some serious 10s/9s with a baby shot.

Erik built our current NA iron block pump gas 408 that runs high 9s and he built us a NA 445 that ran 9.3s on pump gas. We are now having him bump our NA 455 up to a NA 460 pump gas set up that should be low low 9s on motor.

Yes he knows what he's doing.lol. He is the best in the business IMO.

I'll give another positive endorsement to Erik and HKE. He did all the machining and balancing work for my 383. Plus, got me the crank, rods, and valve springs at great prices. While I built my own motor, I can't say enough about this guy - he has great attention to detail and getting the best out of blueprinting a motor.
