What about these, Mopar dude??

It's the 440 bracket motor I just finished up for my dadís Little Red Express. (previously owned by my uncle that I inherited the van from...)

It's basically a 6 pack motor below the intake manifold, rods, heads, crank, TRW forged domes, ported stock heads, 12.75 compression, Lunati Voodoo solid roller & Harland sharp rockers.

Props to V's House of Horsepower for the machine work, parts, and advice!

*drool*

Those six-pack 440's were so underrated HP wise.

Thank you. I hope so...

It's the engine that has been in the truck for at least 20 years, so it was wore out. The old purple cam was worn bad, and the leak down showed 40-50% in 6 cylinders, and 10% in two (those had bent valves).

the truck was running 11.99 @95mph like that!

We did new bearings, hone & polish, full roller valve train swap, and total seal gapless rings. It is showing 100% accross the board... so are 10.99s in the future?? we'll see at quaker...
