    AMC HotRods smoked everyone!!!

    One of the reasons that the 70+ 360/390/401s ran so good is that AMC disected the competition's engines and equaled or improved almost every aspect. (oil system is a bit weak, OK under 6500RPMs)

    The unported "Dogleg" heads flow only slightly less than the early hemi heads, and OUTFLOW the early HEMI heads when ported!!!
    The fully ported Indy SR-1 heads are maybe even a lil weaker than the genuine 291c.
    Check out the flow chart from Indy:

    AMC also used 1" wrist pins, super high nickel in their cast iron (no 4-bolt mains required), and bulletproof forged crank and rods.

    Their design at the timing chain cover area lends itself very well to NASCAR and NHRA, all that stuff can come rite off. Install a dry sump, crank trigger ign, external water pump, etc.

    Way ahead of their time, squashed by the Arabs!

    everyone should go pick up a november issue of mopar muscle.
    why mopar muscle?, this is an amc forum.
    well indy cylinder heads, maker of high performance mopar blocks and heads now makes a block and heads for amc people.
    there is a write up on a 500 cu in amc motor making 840 hp and 675 ft lbs of torque at 7500 rpm and only weighs 450pounds.
    it says mopar invasion really big in bright orange letters check it out[/list]
    JEEP the toughest 4 letter word on wheels
