Santa stopped early in a Penski Truck.

1400 hp that's a hell of a lot of nostalgia . looks like they did a lot of balancing on that crank.

 So Paul-what is definition of "Nostalgia BB/Gas?  No clue about the NHRA today. Back in 68 my 428 CJ Torino (Notch back-rare car would like to have it today) ran D/PS.  what would a comparable class be today?  The 428CJ was rated at 335 HP but I believe NHRA factored it to 365.

In any case sounds like you are building a beast for sure!

Paul, I know you probably already know this but from my understanding a lot of the old Lunati guys (before bought by comp cam) went to Bullet cams. I know mr. Joe & Joey personally. My understanding the bullet cam is a true steel stick where the new Lunati cams & comp cams are not 

actually I think Lunati was bought by Holley

Santa wasn't as nice to me. Found a 360 to replace the 440 that came apart. Just trying to get the little bugs work out of this one and then this. Had a 318 in another truck I bought for parts sticking it in today.

Looks like a case of positive crankcase ventilation. (sorry, just couldn't resist)

Yep! The blown small block I put in in September  lasted only 5 runs, but than again it was build in the 90's and laid in a container for 20+ years before I used it.

I'm thinking that this engine is already doesn't have enough cubic inches.

I've got quite a few new engines and probably a dozen built and ready to go some back as far as 1973. But in my defense they are all port sealed and filled with Rust Veto. but they sit so  I'm probably worse :)  

The one from the 90's would have lasted except for five 6500 7000 rpm launches at full boost.

You could build one with 3x the CID and have the same though if you could've built it with 4x the CID...

Ain't that the truth!  Just have to remember one's needs and not over run them
