Sounds cool. Not a lot of folks seem to be aware of East Coast land speed racing. I don't expect great success, more interested in just playing the game.

Tom,

The today way to do this is to use a 400 block and install a 3" or a 3.25" crank in it and add a good set of free flowing aftermarket heads.

And I dearly loved my old junk301 up around 7,500 rpm!!

Back again,  I chased down a supplier of 6.25" long forged SJ rods so that I could use 6" rod, 350 pistons to make another junk301.

I just don't get why stock 302" and .030" and .060" overbore pistons are so scarce???

Heck, back in the day W/JCW sold el-cheapo, 1/8" overbore domed 283 cast pistons that I had in my junk301 for like $39.95/set along w/ cheap rings for like $5.00/set.  Badger or Simplex pistons?
