What fuel system did you run at those numbers to go lean? My build is very similar to yours. Havent finished it up yet but im running twin ford gt pumps off of dual fpdms. Im hoping i dont go lean and can break 600. Cant believe how similar we are set up though

I currently have a single Ford GT pump with Kenne Bell BAP all the way up with 60lb injectors. My new system will have twin 340's and dual fpdm set up like yours.

Had the same thing happen to me, broke 2 beehive springs, dropped intake valve though... Ate the patriot heads up real bad, and I had just bought them... Only have a pic of the piston though

Not exactly sure, it done it at idle but the day before I was drivin around doin data logging with the guy I had tuning it and I got on it then when I shifted it backfired so I think that broke them, then when it was idling the retainer gave way

Aric my tuner said he sees no problem pulling this motor to 7300 once I Have the volume at the rails. The edelbrock intake lost 10ftlbs of torque up to 4600 but at 5000rpm it takes off Wow!! I am still running a 3.125 blower pulley when I finish my fuel i want to go down 1 pulley size and hopefully get me to the 550-575 power range. Im gonna have to put the meth kit on to get to the 600 number guess in have to wait and see
Congrats man! I'm glad you got that thing on the road again!
