RE: Pistons for 440 crossram wedge



Is there a web page that has all the specs of stock big blocks ( 361 thru 440 6 pac) IE, compression,  bore, stroke, cam lift and duration, would like to compare specs. I know I found one before. If and when I rebuild my 361, would like to bring it up to at least 383 specs. Thanks John Wask.....

Behind the curtain Jason, the 284-484 was NEVER a good cam McCandless would tell you to throw it in the dumpster…. In the early 90’s Edelbrock called on us to help out with their Performer and Performer RPM research… We brought cars, dyno motors and they asked if we could rustle up the original prints for the big block heads… In the end, they’ve done an awesome job on their Performer packages…. I always recommend their cams first and foremost depending on application… Yes some of the earlier stuff needed tweaked but that was 20 years ago… I’d use the Performer for middle of the road street and RPM for HOT street… Above that the Victor and 509 and 550 cams are good choices too but again… can we say combination?

When you get that together I’d really like your opinion on how it runs  privately is fine.    I have been around 3 engines of varying states of performance.  And I’m sorry to report not one time did the engine perform to my satisfaction.    One guy just sold the car he was so disappointed.  The other guy same specs. On the motor i.e. 10:1 compression and internal parts   906 heads  same junk intake and all that.    swapped cam to the Mopar 509 cam and then I was pleased with its performance.  We had installed the 284-484 purple shaft based on reasoning that it’s a show car/ driver.   69 general lee clone.  Thing was gutless  and we installed a 3500 stall converter to help it out.  yes that helped but still was dead feeling.    Swapped to the bigger cam and suddenly the car has more tire frying performance and sounds way better.  Another buddy had a 284 484 cam in one of his cars and it slowed down at the strip over a smaller cam they had.  So personally speaking  for all the hype the cam has I’ve never seen the performance from it.  maybe just wrong combination I don’t know.  that’s why I’m asking.  Plus I’m about to yank the Engle cam in my 65 out and put something else in.  sure it makes torque from the bottom to the top but it has no “biteâ€?    and I get terrible fuel mileage.  My charge  440 with 2 4bbl carbs and 324 duration 550 lift hydraulic cam would get 10-12 mpg.   And I didn’t baby that thing either.  But the 65 I do drive sensibly.

Sorry for rambling but I would like to find the magic combination that will make that 284 cam work.

Thanks for info Guys

I will check on the KB Hypereutectic pistons.

Hoping to run pump gas as well. Thanks Gary
