    The 408 is built and waiting to go in the truck.
    Past two years have been wild, new baby boy, wife is now a stay at home mom and I've spent the past year building my dream shop complete with Bendpak 2 post lift and air conditioning.
    Almost finished and will get back to work on the truck soon.

    Project Maverick. I feel the need, the need for speed

    Slammed R?T cam #'s are perfect except i'd run 11-1 comp plus... You can run 1.5 -1 more comp. with alum heads... .575 lift good #. my opinion..
    unless you want a trailer puller with 3:54 gears ??

    That's a statement that has a lot of variables if you meant running these numbers over 11 to 1 cr. Cam size would be critical at this point if wanting to run on the street with these pressures.
    When everything is said and done, there is little to no difference to heat output between cast and aluminum heads at full throttle.
    Stop light to stop light is another story but beyond a drop in dynamic cr for a bunch of reasons, I wouldn't feature having to pour in octane boost or racing gas to go to the lumber yard.
    Some ppl here build serious engines. Many might go in-between or less. That's why it's critical to know what fits the needs of the usage as opposed to extremes.

    I would love to have your engine build in my truck. Higher CR makes power pure and simple. But I need to use this thing like a "truck" at times. I would be concerned enough and too scared to plop an engine build like yours ( as much as I love it) in my sled and not have to worry about constant pressures.
