Thanks for the info Salina, very informative.

I've heard the Durham late model engines are pretty strong.  Any idea what kind of HP they have?

They are 900+ most likely closer to 950 in qualifying trim. Most are 430 cubic inch.

Business has been good. It's obviously our busiest time of year, and we have been working hard to make sure everyone is ready for the begining of the season. We will keep working diligently and hopefully grow the buisness back to the standing it once had.

Not all Ford heads have splayed/canted (staggered) valves. The Splayed/canted valve design is based off of the Cleveland

engine, which is what evolved into the D3 ford head which Roush Yates used for years in Nascar. This same essential 

design is what most late model guys use, (given some exception to the FR9 guys). The Windsor head design is an inline

valve head, and is the model for the ASCS Ford head. When R/Y was building a few 410's towards the end of their sprint car

program they were using a 10 degree Edelbrock design. The issue with trying to use an off the shelf Ford inline valve head

is that all of them have been designed for an intake manifold, to fit under a hood. By contrast the 13 and 10 degree All Pro,

Brodix, and Shaut heads all have the intake runners raised and the port at a much better angle to the valve, because they

have been designed specifically for independant runner manifolds, to fit under the hood of a sprint car. Jeremy Anderson 

can correct me if I'm wrong about the 10 degree Edelbrock stuff, but I know at one time they were testing it. As for the

Block the valve layout is the same so moving the lifter location isn't an issue. With cnc's it's no big deal to change that

peramiter these days.The rumor I heard was Durham Racing Engines was working on some engines for TSR as well. They

are one of the top late model builders.



Finally , someone that knows what there talking about.
