    Black Bess

    Tim put together the engine in Bess at the end of
    2010 recording 342 rwhp. A year later at the end of
    2011 we had the heads ported by Fox Lake & the lump
    has been pumping out around 380 ever since then.
    Well I decided that I wanted a little more so we added
    a few cubes, some compression & a bigger cam.

    In addition rocker stud girdles & a crank scaper were
    also installed. The results speak for themselves;

    The new numbers are in my signature,the hp peak(426)
    is about 400 rpm higher now but torque is around the
    same rpm as before. A nice wide sweet spot is a plus.

    Fayette County Custom

    My strut tower brace proves that there’s more
    than one way to brace a strut. A labor of love
    from southwestern Fayette county.
