    Jed Scott at Scott’s Speed Shop on YouTube runs the Weiand 6 pack Tunnel Ram on his 505ci Charger. Think it’s 615hp, 650 torque at 10:1 compression. Makes good torque but I think it hurt the top end. I can call him and ask more specifics if you like. It definitely makes a statement.

      Lol. Thanks. One of his videos is actually what I posted that revived this thread!
      I have his email and phone number, and I spoke w/him a couple of times. Thanks

      Also, I plan on having my intake welded up and ported out to Max Wedge ports for the TF 270s, and I'm going with a 4.25 stroke (4.50 bore = 541 cu in) on a BME aluminum block that will accept a 4.50 stroke without clearancing, so I think that may be worth a few ponies.
      Welding and porting to Max Wedge ports is one of the things Jed and I discussed.

      The vizzard book is very High level over view. I found it a waste of time. And no I wouldn’t run 3 4412’s. I would mod one to replace your center carb. The mechanical carbs that holley sold like I run could work well. They will probably need serious mods though. I had to add adjustable idle circuits to my outboards for the big engine. The preset unadjustable idle circuits on the outboards were too lean. I then added a 4412 center which also required additional calibrations. None of it is going to be an easy bolt on and go if you want optimum drivability and performance.

        Yeah, and I only have so much time, even if I amass additional knowledge.
        My inclination is to work with what I have, that I've also invested in a lot of Promax parts, and see how that goes. Changing out the center carb is a mixed review issue. If I decided that the carbs are "holding me back", my next plan was always to ring up Bruce at F&B and go Direct Port Injection EFI w/the 3x2 throttle bodies setup others have done with this specific intake.

          yeah he’s pretty nice guy we talk a lot, he wants me to get my Coronet done. We were going to race at MoKan. Talked about him possibly riding with me at Drag Week before COVD.
          But I’ve hit a wall on my heap.

              Thank you! I had a thread in the General Discussion forum about the hurricanes.
              Short version is Marco fizzled out, and if Laura had stayed on the track forecast over the weekend, into the New Orleans area, my house that's about 5 feet off the ground probably would have flooded. Cristobal actually put the most water across my property as anything since I've been here in 2012. Not close to the house, but about 18" deep at ground level.
              Laura w/high tide had some water across streets and in my yard, but most of my grass was still visible.
              Thanks again!

                  Yep. All the inquiries are gratefully received.
                  I am not going to think on what would have happened if the original track would have been the route of that storm. Really really bad, and that's enough.
                  Fortunately Marco was a non issue and Laura went west. Water came up a bit, but didn't even cover the whole yard.
                  Thanks again everyone. It means a lot to me!

                  Glad to hear you’re all good. One question, have you ever considered moving to higher ground?

                  When “Sandy” pounded my area, billions in damaged housing happened. The insurance companies had the entire south shore water front area housings lift there houses up 1 story high or not be insured.

                  What most did was lift the house up, re do the foundation with the added 10 foot concrete walls. A stipulation was nothing would be insured under the main house, so, if you turned it into store or a garage and lost anything to a high tide or a storm, your screwed, total loss. Everything else will be covered.

                  This house flooded twice before we bought it. We've been here about 8 years.
                  The federal home elevation program requires 3 flooding events before they will assist in paying the cost to elevate the house. I can't afford to pay for that, because it would cost over $100k as I understood the one well known company that does that. Around $45/ft² so for a 2k sq ft house, that's $90K Could be double that.
                  We love our house, especially the property, because it's on about 1¾ acres and the same bayous, marsh, lakes, and Gulf that menace us are wonderful to enjoy.
                  At 58, I am going to take my chances.

                  The Feds should assist ($$$) with raising the house GOD forbid that happen again.

                  Yeah, it takes 3 flooding events in a certain time period, so it doesn't qualify. That is just a matter of paying national flood insurance claims vs the cost of raising flood prone houses. It's all about the long term costs.

                    FEMA I don't think (but not sure) handles the elevation program. Yes, you are correct in a way, in that the feds would be paying for elevating my house if I qualified, BUT I pay flood insurance every year and that isn't cheap, but even that is subsidized.
