GTO is sharp !

Thanks!

For some particulars regarding the build. What precipitated this was a wiped cam lobe. That lead to the discovery of a burnt exhaust valve. So then it was on. Good thing, too as all the bearings were wiped out from all that metal flowing through. As long as I was doing it, I was going to do it right. This engine started life as a 400 CID unit. I opted for a forged stroker crank (4.125), forged rods, forged pistons, and a roller cam. I had a set of larger chamber heads (6x-4) to bring the compression down to pump gas livable levels. It’s about 9.2:1. I rebuilt the Q-jet I had for it. With the new stroke factored in, it’s a 461 and It runs pretty good. I still need to get things dialed in with the carb and ignition tuning, though.
