Pump Gas 440 cid Pontiac engine by Tin Indian Performance for the CF-71 Freedom Bird idel on dyno
This is the 440 cid Pontiac engine we build to Ty Ingle's CF-71 Freedom
Bird. The engine is based off a 400 cid pontiac block. Pro-Warrior 4"
stroke crank and Pro-Warrior 6.8 long rod were used on the bottom end along
with a set of KB forged pistons. A Tin Indian Performance custom ground
Comp Cams solid roller was also used with Crower solid roller lifters. The
engine is topped off with Kauffman Racing Equipments new North Wind intake
manifold and a custom Pro Systems carb. The combo pulled 11" of vac at 850
rpm! It made 590 hp and 550 ft lbs of torque. ALL ON PUMP GAS!!!
Pump Gas Pontiac engine 468 cid by Tin Indian Performance on the dyno 558 hp 583 ft lbs of torque
This is a 468 cid Pontiac engine we build to Mike Matuszek and his '66 GTO.
The engine is based off a 455 cid pontiac block. An Eagle crank and rod
combo was used on the bottom end along with a set of KB forged pistons. A
Tin Indian Performance custom ground Comp Cams hyd roller was also used
with Comp Cams hyd roller lifters. The engine is topped off with Performer
RPM cylinder heads and intake. We also used one of our custom 4150 1"
spacers with the 950 cfm quick fuel carb. The combo pulled 11" of vac at
850 rpm! It made 558 hp @ 5400 and 583 ft lbs of torque @ 4500 rpm. ALL
ON PUMP GAS!!! Watch those brand new Doug's Headers turn blue on the pull.
KRE WARP 6 headed 535 cid Pontiac engine idel on dyno
This is the fist KRE WARP 6 headed 535 cid Pontiac engine at idel on the Dyno. This engine is
built using a K&M Performance Parts MR-1 block, with KRE's canted valve
WARP 6 cylinder heads. This is a fully machined casting with water jackets
that flows over 400 cfm as cast. This is the ULTIMATE Pontiac cylinder
Pontiac Performance Tips from Butler Performance V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Certain engine builders specialize in specific
brands, and for Pontiac power, Butler Performance is in the forefront.
We visited Butler to get the lowdown on the latest in hi-po parts for
Pontiac V8s and to spec out a motor for project "Splitter." Here, David

1968 Plymouth Barracuda 426 Hemi Under the Hood
www.e-motorclassics.com Hemi Engine History
A Chrysler Hemi engine is one of three different internal combustion engine
families from the Chrysler Corporation that are Hemi engines; in other
words, they utilize a hemispherical combustion chamber. A hemispherical
cylinder head allows the valves to be inline rather than side-by-side,
which gives a straighter, simpler airflow path, allows large valves, and
gives greater efficiency. The hemi design places the sparkplug in the
center, giving more even ignition.
The advantages of the hemi cylinder head come at the disadvantage of
requiring intake and Exhaust valve
stems that point in different directions, requiring much more complicated
rocker arm setups in overhead valve engines. These also increase the space
taken up by the cylinder head; Hemi engines are not space-efficient.
The hemispherical head designed engines were the first engines in 1964 to
officially use the "Hemi" name, a word Chrysler trademarked. All Chrysler
Hemi engines of the 1960s displaced 426 in³ (7.0 L). Although just 11,000
Hemi engines were produced for consumer sale, the engine became legendary,
with "Hemi" becoming one of the most familiar automobile-related words in
the United States. The 426 Hemi was nicknamed the "elephant engine" at the
time, a reference to its far-from-compact dimensions and extraordinary
OLDSMOBILE 455 W-43 EXPERIMENTAL HEMI AND OTHER EXOTIC ENGINES - THE JOHN BELTZ YEARS PHOTO TRIBUTE
John Beltz was Oldsmobile's chief engineer in 1964 and one of the prime
movers of the Toronado and 442 project. Beltz was promoted to Oldsmobile
general manager at age 43 in 1969 when Harold N. Metzel retired. Beltz
passed away in May of 1972 from cancer at the age of 46.
John Beltz is leaning on a dual fan 455 Olds and posing with other
experimental Olds engines that never saw production.
Here are descriptions of these engines:
1. The 0W-43 all aluminum 455 with 4 valve per cylinders, four overhead cam
Weber engine. With a redline of just under 8,500rpm it was originally
conceived for CAN AM racing. At 3,000rpm it put out 300hp and at 6,000rpm
registered over 600hp. The top output recorded for this engine in the
Lansing Dyno facility
was 700 real hp at 6,800rpm. Tests were run with both carbueration and fuel
injection. The block was cast from Reynolds 356 alloy and fitted with
pressed-in dry steel cylinder liners for the Forged-True 12.20to 1 pistons.
Billet steel connecting rods by Carillo was used along with a forged steel
crank. The engine weighed in at 50 pounds lighter than the production 455
motor! It was developed at the same time as the ZL-1 Chevy 427 motor.
2. The W-43 4 valve per cylinder 455 developed by JOHN BELTZ , LLOYD GILL ,
JOE JONES AND FRANK BALL. Rated at 500-550hp with a single Rochester
Quadrajet on an aluminum manifold. Constructed with both cast iron heads
and block and with aluminum-alloy block and heads 75 pounds lighter than
the conventional 455 production engine. Engine featured four valves per
cylinder with narrowed angles for a super efficient combustion chamber
design, central spark plugs and could easily be adapted for chain for gear
driven overhead camshafts. 455 engine had 4.625inch cylinder centers, a
4.125 bore and 4.250 stroke. Making use of the 3inch main bearings and 2.50
inch rod journals, the engine was fitted with a specially prepared cast
crank fitted with SAE-1140 forged steel rods, forged 10.20-to-1 pistons
which rode on Morraine 400 bearings. Four bolt main block boasted 2
additional 5/8inch drain holes. Four valve heads featured 1.750inch intake
valves (SAE-8640 steel) with 22 degree stems and 1.375 Exhaust (214-N stainless steel) with 15 degree
stems, special Stellite seats, bronze alloy guides, o ring plug tubes, 14mm
spark plugs, 3/8 inch pushrods and aluminum rocker arms. (Of all the
experimental Olds engines, this one came the closest to production and
there are photos of this engine in street gear. MAY 71 HOT ROD MAGAZINE
features some of these engines and the sadness of the Olds engineers of
that time of how they would never be released.)
3. 455 dual turbocharged CAN AM ROCKET
CHALLENGE. 659hp @ 6250rpm. 554lbs torque @ 6,250 rpm. Alloy block with 4
bolt mains. Forged steel crankshaft. Forged True pistons with 8.5 to 1
compression. 3inch main journals. 2.499inch rod journals. Carillo billet
steel rods. alloy heads. 2inch intake valves. 1.625inch Exhaust valves. Crower roller camshaft with
555inch lift and 320 degrees duration. Dual TRW-375-E-10 turbochargers with Boost Wastegate 10and 1/2psi. Lucas fuel
injection. Olds alloy intake.
