I was talking to a Buick guy who builds engines and breaths it today and I told him all what I know about the Packard V8.
I told him about the 5 inch from center, high nickel and how I've read people taking them up to 400 and possibilities of 500 cubes. He immediately started talking in math only a engine builder could understand but hes a true friend and was patient with me to the point I learned so much in that conversation about the basics in engine building.

Here are 2 question he told me to post.

1. How many cubes has anyone took this V8 Up to in the past?

2.what is the safest one can over bore, and what is the wall thickness in the cylinders.
