On serious race builds, I am seeing very close to 900 HP with the same AFR 245 heads and a lot of trick parts to go along with them. Do not waste your money on the alu block.

PS. It was built on the east coast.
Sounds like about 575 - 600 hp. I had a car at 3290 lb 357ci sbf 12.5 to 1 305 cfm AFR cylinder head that ran 10.20's in the heat and made 537 hp. My friends car is 3150lb with a 12.7 to 1 406ci Brodix 23 deg heads made 622 hp ans runs 9.70's all day long. As i've said before dyno numbers are only numbers and dont mean anything.
