Alright so the second round of frankensteining came along nicely, christine is sitting at 9 inches with an SFA D44 in the front and a 79 14BFF in the rear with 40" Irok radials to tie it all together. Currently I have the chance to obtain a 7.0L Mark IV GM Goodwrench Bare big block from a friend, my question of course is "is this the same block they used for the 7.4L 454?". I want to bore it out to 4.290 and put a 4.375in stroke crank in to churn out around 500ci but i'm not sure if this block will take a crankshaft like that. Anyone who knows? I'd greatly appreciate it. other than that, heres some pictures of christine after her last remodeling.
