Thank you

Yeah, you're welcome. You think I made your point for you, but this is actually the point that negates your argument.

Although it was still a cool ride and came out very nicely, the Nailhead was not as successful as the GTO that came before it or the Charger that came after it because it was by itself and did not draw any OEM participation or additional vehicle donations. When you look at the big picture of raising the money, you shoot yourself in the foot by doing this. They pretty much didn't have a choice with the 47. Building the Dodge motor wasn't going to cut it for the hot rod community or the power levels that they would like to see. That's not going to be the case with an AMC motor.

All AMC motors are very boost-friendly. 327's are big-block Chevy sized castings with forged cranks and rods. Old-school racers that still run them have used over 20 lbs. There's some pretty cool shit out there that you can do with the older motors. Just have to dig around for it.

I believe that this site belongs to the Greg Taylor we know as "Amundaza" here on GL:

This one showcases books on boosting by Dick Datson which have been mentioned many times on ISFJA and the AMC-List:

This one talks a little about the aluminum 327's that AMC started building for racing:
