This is the engine that went 12.35 in the quarter at Suffolk Raceway
In Virginia. It is a stock bore 1969 440 with 10.4:1 compression, Crane
Cam, Mildly ported 452 heads with 2.19 intake and 1.81 exhaust valves.
That’s an Eldebrock TM7 intake with the ‘miracle carb’
The miracle carb started as a 600 Holley but was tweaked and modified
to be closer to 700 and it always ran amazing. I just noticed that I
Still had power steering, heater, and the cast iron water pump housing
on it and it still ran 12’s.
I had just repainted the engine for this shot so it really looks awesome.
