You guys are good about showcasing mods.You are not so good about following up. Here is an article in 2009 promoting the use of a sleeve:http://www.popularhotrodding.com/enginemasters/articles/hardcore/0603em_block_sleeving/viewall.htmlHow about a follow up?Has this motor blown up? Does it have 50k on it?It's easy enough to put in a sleeve and boast of the value. It's more difficult to check on it a few years later and see if the block is still intact.
Just re-read the article about the trans in the 68 Nova project and realized the Turbo 400 Switch Pitch converter setup was used. I ran this in a 78 Monte Carlo behind a 406 that made about 550HP and I loved it. Only difference is that I wired mine to the brake light switch so I could control it with my left foot. I set the brake light switch to come on with only slight movement of the pedal. Worked great and didn't need my hands to do it.
