I know little about BBC engines.... paid someone thousands to build one and got nothing in return.... diff story and being handled accordingly.
I am now doing what I can to get my car going with what I have - a stock 1978, 2 bolt, 454 from a truck. Couple of questions....
1. Is the electronic oil pressure sending unit on the driver's side, towards the front, bottom corner? Going to a mechanical guage so thinking I remove this electronic sending unit and simply plumb the feed line for my mechanical gauge in - anything else needed?
2. Again this is a 100% stock motor - what are the best performance mods for the buck, based upon the stock set-up I have. I think the compression is 8.8:1? Assuming a head swap might help to raise compression and flow, unless the heads I have are worth keeping?
I assume the rochester carb and intake are junk? just not sure where to start to free up the HP "cheaply".
Any help is appreciated!
