Hi Bill, and Everybody!

I appreciate the above kind words, You, and others are vary good about
giving credit where it is due (or not as the case may be) and I was not
being critical of you, the lists, or anybody on them!
You know the type of machinery that I am vary lucky to play with.
So, earlier that day I had to deal with a "Rice Boy" and...
Who's tag line has arguing with Idiot's in it!?!!
So, to anyone that I offended, or came off as an arrogant SOB (though I am).
I do here by most humbly apologize.
For Penance I shall now go out and spend money on SWMBO's Project rather
then my new, old F250!
PS: New F250 Runs Hard, and Looks like it has a 429CJ in it but we are still
early in the running the casting numbers game!

No offense taken Chris. Didn't mean to say you weren't "official" I just
thought it was interesting to see exactly the same thing in print from an
OK now it's time for something I know everyone has been waiting for...the
update on the "Killer 400" project. OK...so only a few deluded M block
devotees have been waiting for it but here it is anyway. The block is in the
shop hot tanked, bored to .020 over with new freeze plugs, cam bearings and
sporting a sexy, new, corporate blue paint job. The flat top, 9:1 pistons
are on order from somewhere in the midwest or "flyover country" as us coast
dwellers call it (just kidding, a little humor there, I lived in Michigan
for 3 years). As soon as they arrive I'm taking the crank, rods, pistons,
flexplate & har. bal. in for balancing. The 2V Cleveland heads are bead
blasted and sitting in on my workbench waiting for some loving caresses from
the die grinder, nothing too exotic just a little cleanup, smoothing &
polishing. Other ingredients for the recipe are an Edelbrock 4V manifold and
650 cfm 4V carb. Headers will come later.
Now it's time to get down to the nitty gritty. I put together a spreadsheet
with my cam choices on it and now I'd like some input. I hope that this
comes thorough legibly on most mail readers.
Just a reminder this is going into a 79 F250 4X4 with 3.54 gears, 33 inch
tires and a C6. It's a low mileage semi daily driver that gets to go out and
play in the mountains with the other 4 wheelers several times per year right
now, hopefully more in the near future. And yes, I do want to be able to
thumb my nose at most big block guys.
