DYNO RESULTS - 390 stroker

This was my first time having an engine dynoed and having something built like this. I was pleased with the results, but more happy that things went so well... had to do minimal tuning and nothing went wrong.... carnage, leaks, etc.

Dyno: SF-901

All runs were made on straight PUMP GAS - 91 OCTANE.

654 HP @ 6700 (TRQ was 512) (VE% 104.9)

552 TRQ @ 5300 (HP was 557) (VE% 102.2)

The dyno operator thought it needed more carb actually (Dominator 1250 and would get about 20 more HP)

Barry @ Survival provided the Stroker kit, BT MR heads Stage X and Cam

HERE ARE THE SPECS:

Ford FE 390 / 451 stroker
D4TE/ 105 mirror block (stroke 4.25, 4.11 bore - 451 C.I.)(sonic checked very good)

Compression: 11.5

Blue Thunder MR heads-Stage X, T&D roller rockers

Solid Roller Cam, Intake .697, Exhaust .695, Duration @ .050: Intake 264, Exhaust 272

Victor manifold port matched, Pro Systems 1000HP carb

MSD distributor

R.E.F. Unlimited headers: 2 1/8, 3.5 collector

Electric water pump

Wow

That is the highest horsepower N/A 390 based engine I've ever seen. Very good job on getting it together.

Be fun to see it go down the track.

Got any pics/dyno sheets?

654hp? - holy $hit!

July 16 2011, 1:03 PM 

likewise, my concerns are the same. how much will a stock 390 block take?

fantastic numbers, hats off to your engine builder.

Never underestimate the power of a big-ass cam!

Maybe it's not a full race cam, but it's big compared to what I'm used to. Very nice build with unexotic parts. Way cool!

I was wondering what the advertised duration is? That'd most likely be the numbers @0.020"

July 17 2011, 10:20 AM 

Or what lobes are they, again if you don't mind sharing.

Thanks for the lobe separation.

Thanks for the compliments....

July 17 2011, 10:06 AM 

Needless to say, I'm pretty stoked to get 1.45HP per C.I. and on 91 octane. I will scan my dyno sheets tomorrow at the office and see if can get them to post on here, but would be willing to email them if anyone is interested. I can understand if there would be skepticism for sure.

Congratulations on your stroker 390! It would be interesting

July 17 2011, 10:54 AM 

to compare your dyno results on another dyno. Not to steal any of your excitement but, my friend bought a used 901 (which I am learning to operate) from a guy who said that there can be as much as 50 HP and TQ swings from dyno to dyno...depending on calibration and cooling methodology. The fact that this was acheived with 91 octane is saying something!
All thing being equal, you will know when you make the first complete pass. Good luck!

Very true, but at $600-1,000 for a dyno session, ...

July 17 2011, 11:27 AM 

I'll just have to wait and use the E.T. slip to gauge it's accuracy. They did say they some say their dyno is a bit stingy and they are a pretty reputable shop. http://www.cpgnation.com/forum/greeley-automotive-machine-builds-championship-power-4249.html
