impressive, mikes cam should be driveable, too. Track cars on the street are too much fun! Even if youre just putting it around its nice knowing its there.

Is it possible to build a pump gas 427 sbc that makes 700 hp N/A ? Without using exotic parts. Just plain stuff that anyone can order from a speed shop? I may be helping a friend build such a motor. We are looking at a Dart SHP 427 assembled short block with flat top pistons. Maybe around 11.5 CR and a solid roller. He already has a AFR composite race intake with a 4150 flange, an MSD crank trigger, Daytona sensors ignition box, 1.75" hooker headers, an 850 QFT carb and a real fancy moroso pan. What could we keep and what should we get rid of? What heads to use? Current motor is a 11-1 CR 383 with AFR 195 heads and a Hyd roller. Car is a 78 lemans, runs 10.80's with 4.56 gears and a turbo 350.

Just remember the smallest head Chevy put on a 427 CID engine was 253cc. The AFR235 will do it but you will need headers. I would buy the head with spread port exhaust so you can put a 2" header on it. Small, Large, Medium....no matter the adjective used to describe 427 CID, it's still 427 CID.
