This is my new 417ci CHI cleveland based ford. On 98 octane pump fuel with out of the box heads,manifold and 1050 dominator carb it went 682hp @7k and 585ft/tq @5k.
Nothing exotic or trick other than a solid roller camshaft. This was the virgin startup and never got a vid of a pull sorry. Going into a 3550lb XD Falcon.
Kevin92xj's 351 Cleveland Build
My brother, kevin92xj, talking about his 351 Cleveland for his '67
Fairlane. The engine got left outside in California, after a lot of
expensive machine work, and it needs to be re-machined now. Once he gets
his finances in order (and he pays off his truck), the build will
393 Cleveland Stroker - First Start
This is the first start up of a 393 Cleveland Stroker that I've been
meticulously building over the last several months. It's been a great
learning experience for me as I was able to not only plan and assemble the
components for the engine, but design and build the test stand as well.
Here are the specs for this engine:
Edelbrock dual plane aluminum intake manifold -- For run in only, switching
to Weiand X-celerator 2V that has been converted to FI for later.
Edelbrock Alloy heads -- CNC Ported by Cam Research in Englewood, CO
1.73:1 ratio Harland Sharp Rocker Arms
Probe 393C stroker kit (10669-030-PS-F393C):
4340 Forged steel crank, 3.85" stroke, Nitride Hardened
Probe H-beam forged steel rods, 5.956 long
Probe forged pistons, 16cc dish, 2618-T61 Aluminum, Full Floating
Rollmaster CS3130 -- Timing Set
Powerbond Harmonic Balancer
Custom ground hydraulic flat tappet Camshaft
Oil Pan -- Aluminum 10 Qt. -- Dennis Quella -- Pantera Performance

Ford F100 vs. Chevy Corvette
My brother's truck is finally up and going after a year of work. It used to
have a near stock 351 Windsor in it. Now it has a Windsor block with
Cleveland heads and is stroked to 427 cu. in. This was the first time we
had it at the track since we got it running and it was having some traction
issues off the line all night. It was also sputtering a little so he had to
hammer it at the light, let off, and hammer it again to get it to take off
right. With those issues fixed, it'll easily run in the 7s. It already ran
an 8.14 that night.
