Mike's cool 66 Vette
This great looking '66 Vette belongs to Mike White. He came-in looking for a mild, yet high quality power plant that could pull hard down in the lower RPM's, yet still have good, strong power in the upper RPM range, so we set him up with an aluminum headed, full roller, 350 specially designed to do exactly what he was looking to do. This 4 bolt main 350 has a steel crank, 4340 steel rods, forged TRW pistons, a custom ground Comp Cams .576" lift roller cam with light weight roller lifters, Edelbrock RPM heads, a port matched RPM "Air Gap" intake manifold, and a whole slew of other little goodies we normally put into our engines.
Here is what Mike had to say after he had a chance to drive it for a while.
Arron, finally got a chance to get out and drive it. WOW!!!!! If this is what you call a mild build, I would hate to come up against one of your wild ones. This thing just flat out goes. I asked you for something that had some bottom end to it and you nailed it. Get on it and it just goes. No flat spots. Even with my tall 1st gear, it just goes and only gets stronger as the revs build. I actually had someone ask if I had a big block in it. I'm setting off car alarms in parking lots as I drive by. My neighbors probably hate me. It's idling well at about 850 and it runs like a bat out of hell. I’m still trying to get the stupid grin off my face.
