    I had to go with bias ply tires, I could not get DRs to hook, next time you need tires you should try some.
    Your car is bad ass, I think I watched your Youtube vids before I seen you around here. Cooler than a truck full of Fonzies!!

    Is there a description of your car here somewhere 65Fury440? Sounds like you have had some serious stuff done

    No it has been changing drastically.
    Basically it was a 383 4 speed bench seat car.
    Now has 440 Source 3.75 strokex3.5 bore = 520 CI
    TF 240 heads, ported to MW size, flow 370 cfm @.700 on Larry Smith's bench
    337 intake also ported
    This cam and EDM lifters
    Mancini 1.6 rockers
    Howards Cams Mechanical Flat Tappet Camshafts 720152-08
    2" Dougs headers
    3" TTI exhaust, modified to drop out easily to go to track
    1050 Thumper Dominator
    High volume Carter mechanical fuel pump with electric pusher, 3/8 fuel line
    I rebuilt the original 4 speed B&T trans
    McCleod twin disc clutch and billet flywheel
    Custom driveshaft eliminating B&T driveshaft
    67 B body Dana, had 3.54 gears, now running 4.10. I rebuilt the Sure Grip and got Youtube certified to set up a ring and pinion. ( help from this forum as well)
    Willwood discs up front.
    I haven't been able to break 10s with it yet. My best was 11.21, the ticket didn't print the MPH, but, my buddy thought it was 123 MPH.
    Since that outing I've added a line loc, lighter disc brakes, bigger carb.
    Traction is always an issue, the LL will be easier to heat the tires than popping the clutch and grabbing the brake.
    I might be losing a little time not power shifting, but, I haven't broke anything yet.
    Sorry bout the derail OP.

    Hey Moseman,

    Thanks for that, pretty much what I'm looking at as a matter of fact. I am assuming you've got that in your car currently (since that thread is from a few months back)? How is she running with that cam? Pretty close to what the dyno gave you?

    Thanks MEV, that's a good build up too. I am curious about the cam, I've never used Straub, but it sounds as though you swear by them after the Comp Cams gaff. Can't blame you there. Thanks again, the more info I am getting, the easier it makes to compile a final idea for mine.

    Caz,

    Sweet setup you got there man, I dig it. Did you end up switching out your gears from the 2.73? Just curious. I am hearing from everyone else (outside the forum) to consider the 2.94 or 3.23.

    Dave,

    Like Cbody67, you are always a wealth of knowledge my friend, thanks. I actually just upgraded my radiator setup to the 26" this past winter, so check there. Was definitely getting the windage tray, HV oil pump, HV water pump and a higher torque converter. As far as exhaust, I am probably looking at custom headers (which I know will dent the ol pocket book).

    I honestly had no idea about the issue with the roller cams, wow. I think you just talked me into going back to the flat tappet. I noticed Howard's Cams have pretty good prices and I haven't heard the hit or miss rep about them that Comp seems to have. Not sure if this is because many people use Comp?

    No, I have not. The car is still very apart. I am not going to race it and really want drivability, so I am going try the 2.73 gears first and see how it is. From what others have said, I have a feeling that it might work for me.

    Hey Turbo,

    Good point, kinda tied right into what Dave was saying. The HP manifolds are definitely a consideration, but so are custom headers. Unfortunately my 64 was the final year right before C body production began, so TTI's won't fit. I was curious about the shorty style Hedman's HTC coated.

    Good point there. That's essentially what my builder was telling me to do while he was assembling my short block.

    Well she's out there now, took her to Maine and back for the 4th and she ran great. My old man thinks I should keep the 383 in there, but now that the 440 short block is assembled, NO TURNING BACK NOW. My wife might disagree..

    Yep, got it, thanks. I talked to them prior to purchasing the stroker kit. I mentioned it here to see what others have done and get some ideas, so take it easy.

    Doesn't TTI make shorty headers too?

    Yeah, I saw those. Not sure which would be better?

    I don't know, maybe worth a call since they do cater to old mopars in general.

    Source only carries Comp Cams (no thanks)
    And they only 2 sizes applicable to a stroker in a hydraulic roller.
    They also only carry 1 bolt cams in the SFT series.
    Not saying that what they offer is a bad choice, but a guy that specs cams could probably get way closer on a case by case application
