After the competition Jon mentioned that he thought with a bigger cam there was a lot more horsepower to be had.
I was all for finding out, so the cam was sent back to Comp for a regrind. While Jon had the heads off he flowed them: 380 int 300 ex @.575 lift
Attached is the dyno sheet from yesterday. Jon thought 900 was possible.. I don't know how he could have been so far off. LOL
He is giving a seminar on this engine at the PRI show on Tues if anyone wants more details on this project

That ought to make the Turnpike Bruiser rather peppy!
Very Impressive boys !

That is a hell of a stump puller
Wow, all of that from a MEL? What was the combo, ie, heads, carb, etc? Thanks.

Mike come out from under your rock, google

This years engine master’s. As usual this ain’t no cataloge build.
Oh, I didn't know it was used in the Engines Masters.........sorry. nm

holy crap 703 at 884!
|December 2 2017, 4:48 PM |
Yeah that will do more than pull a stump. Impressive numbers, good job and good luck putting that to the ground. Is it going to be run down the track? In what?
|December 2 2017, 7:08 PM |
I don't have a final home for it, but most likely a 57 Mec wagon that ran high 10s with a 545 385 engine that made about 770 hp
|December 2 2017, 7:15 PM |
Peak torque was 750@5600.
Most of the performance is due to Jon Kaase magic. He scienced out the radically modified (but legal) heads, made oiling and valve train mods for reliability selected the cam grind and provided a proven intake and carb combo
Royce, don't I....

remember an engine like that (at least sorta) winning A/ Modified Sports at the Nationals In Detroit sometime in the early '60s? I believe it was a 'Devin' body and had a spare iron head hung just inside the back bumper to help the traction.
|December 3 2017, 6:03 AM |
That is correct. A MEL won the sports car class and was top eliminator in the Singer Miller dragster
peak is one thing but that curve is diesel-esq

Sounds like a fun build and will be a blast for sure. Congrats again and keep us updated.

My first hot rod was a MEL, in 1966 I put a 430 that I pulled from a 58 Lincoln and rebuilt into a 55 Ford. Make a few mistakes, but had fun as a 15 year old kid building my first car with my dad. MEL s are different, that’s for sure. Bones
