Default New Combo

I put a 468bbc in my dragster and wanted to share what it did.
stock 454 2 bolt block
GM steel crank
Eagle H beams Rods
Ross 13:1 pistons
Dart 355 fully cnc'd heads
Weiand 4500 intake with minor work
APD 1150 Alky Carb 196 jets
2 1/4 to 2 3/8 with 4" collector headers
Star Vac. Pump
8" BTE Conv I had laying around from a 355sbc I used to run. 5800 stall

It ran [email protected] & [email protected]
DA was 3600ft temp was 92 degrees


This car weighed 2011 with aftermark Dart block not sure what it weighs now. I have a few bugs to work out, had a set of old gas short reach plugs laying around I put in it and I am going to lean up the carb. I broke my bigger motor and got a good deal on the short block is why the big heads and carb. I've never seen anyone put this big of head or carb on this small of a motor so I thought I'd share what it did.

Looks like it really came on with it on the top end.
