I did a little mocking up today just for fun.

I’ve lost track of your build. What is going to be the recipient of this fine engine?

!953 1/2 ton pickup. 292, 4-71 blower, 3 Roch 2 bbl, Electromotive direct fire engine management, Tremec tko 600 5 speed. Frankland quick change with Gleason Torson diff. Wilwood 12.88" disk 4/6 piston. The head on there is a full race head built by Gaerte Racing Engines and I have a blower manifold for it but I am getting a 12 port aluminum cross flow head as soon as next week. It will require some block work like additional head studs. They told me they have supported 2000 hp with this head. It's made by Ryan Falconer. You should check out his Bio, has had an interesting life and great to work with. He has the been there done that no big deal attitude

Mick,

What are those holes in the side of the valve cover that look like eyes and a grinning mouth, future locations of breathers?

Yes for breathers. I didn't put them on yet. It can use a little more polishing. I probably won't be using this valve cover on this engine. I just wanted to see what it looked like. The new head I hope to get has it's own valve cover.

I haven't had it made yet. Hogan is going to design and build it. I'll have ports put in it for meth or anything else crazier I want to do down the road. He has made manifolds for the Falconer heads before.
