Seems to be what drives most forums and I'm sick of it. lol People pull out good running v6's and treat them as Junk...yet when one of us Wants it they want over $500!

Experimentation has been done, if you look through old threads here in the 09-12 years it seems like a whole roll of people were into making these things perform....but suddenly they seemed to disappear off the map....probably had to have that dumb 350 or Life got in the way....I have no clue. lol
Even on google! I've done tons of research at just about Every forum and lot's of people had great ideas for these in mind...but all the threads just end without anything ever actually Happening.

So be prepared...even with the advantage of having hot rod parts on the market people are still to stinkin cheap to buy them.

My 292 I6 for instance, TONS of hotrod parts on the market for that, yet you still don't see many around! Oh I forgot to mention....it cost more than a cheap junk crate 350 to build a healthy, unique 292. lol

Taste and Unique is going down the drain anymore....shows are really boring when a line of chevy's and GMC's all have the same engine.

What's worse is people are treating SBC like they're something special, when in reality...they are over used and boring as heck. Only thing that interests me is my 572 big block. haha
I think we would get along quite well.

I also know people will prolly be slow to throw money out there it's very similar in the celica community. But I figure if I can offer shafts for cheap so people could have their pedestals opened up or if I make new ones. It will all kinda fringe on if it costs me less to make like 5 pairs vs one pair and if it's cheap enough I can sell them relatively quickly.

The rockers could be purchased separate from summit so I wouldn't supply those unless for some reason I can setup as a dealer for Harland sharp or something haha
I wish we lived a bit closer as it would be good to find a great machinist we could both use and sit down over a couple of beers and hash out some definite plans and maybe even pool some funds to make this happen.

72redneck...We probably would. haha


Yeah it should be fun with that trans....3800 pound truck with 3.73 gearing and a close ratio trans should make for some easy burnouts and quick shifting. Plus the way I built the engine it should peak torque around 2500 so it'll be perfect.

Found this for ya:

"Heres a little about these motors I leared back in the mid 80's. My grand father gave me his 1965 GMC 1t 4x4 that came with the gas 351c v6. I rembered from a kid that this old truck would out pull anthing and never broke down. The old 351 was getting tired with about 200k on it so i decided to rebuild it and of coarse hop it up. So I started looking into performance imfo on these motors. That put me in contact with Babe Erson. He told me about the gas 478M motor and how with some work the big 478m v6 will easily make more tork and hp than a mildly built 454bbc. So I bougth a 478m motor from the junk yard and went to work per Babe's rec's. The first thing was to throw away the stock 4 ring pistons and masive rods that weight about the same as a complete hemi motor. I had a crank grinder turn the rod journals down to a much smaller size to fit a 426 hemi rod. I had BRC make some new lighter 3 ring pistons that also raised the cr up from 6.5 to 9.0. Engine dynamitics lightened the crankshaft alot and rebalanced every thing for me. Babe made me a special cam and all the vale train parts. I ported the heads and polished the combustion chambers myself. I also made a sheetmetal cross ram intake with 1 850cfm Q Jet carb and a set of home made 1 3/4" headers. Once I got all the tuning done on this motor it was one tork animal that would rev easily to 5.5k. It broke the transfer case right away so I put in a beffier transfer case out of a newer ford truck I think then I blow the old gmc rear end so I upgraded it to a dana 70 with posi. I also upgraded the old truck 4 speed to a newer 5 speed that could be shifted much faster. I had put big 38" tires on this truck and could smoke them in 2nd gear. It did not do to bad on fuel also at about 12 mpg fully loaded with a 10ft camper and pulling a 30ft inclosed trailer running about 65mph. I wish I know where this truck (James) is today as I would try to get him back."

**** that's awesome!

I'm hoping I can make that happen!

Maybe I should contact them to see what they say about the motor and give me a better place to start maybe advice on how they were successful.

I'd love to find a 478 block and crank to work with cuz that would bump the size further.

I have an intake for for a blower that was flame cut and needs to be welded together. PM me if interested. I was going to use it on a V-12, that is all machined, I have on the shelf, but it will need two blowers.
