3 well known Y Block builders, plus my Lincoln Y, are contestants this year.. Should be quite a competition..  the other 3 entries are going to be an Olds, A Chrysler Poly, and I think a Caddy.

Are the basic rules in the Vintage class similar to last years?  IMHO last years rules in the "vintage" class were, as might be expected from Hot Rod Magazine, far removed from anything remotely vintage, as was demonstrated by the winning entry, which was over the top, both in redesign & cost...

The rules are very similar.. The test rpm range as been increased to 3500 to 6500 rpm..  Some new engine families have been added.  Otherwise things are wide open..

I don't think Kasse will do as radical a rework on his entry this year, but face it  he likes to show off his skill on what he is capable of doing.  He would certainly be a dark horse to win this year, just because the size of engine he is building would need to make huge power to be competitive with a 600 horse Y block, which we all know John and Ted are capable of building. Frankly one of the reasons that the Vintage class was such a hit was it allowed a lot of innovation and variety.

PS  Kaase's winner from last yr was tested with a few mods aimed at making max power. and not just best score in the 3000 to 6000 rpm range. John told me with a cam change and an intake change to a super Victor with a 950 Holley he made over 700 horse

Kaase is running an Olds this year, based off a 394.. Ross Racing aluminum heads  Pontiac stroker crank.. I think he plans on 460 something cubes.. He would have to make in the 800 horse range to be competitive

 We'll be going up tomorrow to look at the finished version of the new intake manifold pattern.  Things need to get moving pretty quick if we are gonna have them ready to run for this years competition.
 Its been 14 years since the last time we were personally involved in EMC.  Its a big undertaking, hopefully we can find enough time to build  a competitive entry.
  As far as Kaase goes I'm sure he will do what it takes.  It looks like SAM will be re-entering their POLY, which would give them a nice head start for this year.
  Good luck to all the Y entries this year.

It’s good to see the variety of engines being entered.  Assuming all goes to plan, my entry for this years’ EMC engine was found in Comanche Texas.  The block so far has checked out good which is saying something considering where it had been sitting for awhile.
