The attainable Hp will depend on the engine builder and parts used of course.
You could give two builder the exact same components and end up with very different results.
I think there would be quite a few builders who could get 750-800 hp out of 570-580 inches with pump gas. Others will make less HP with similar parts.
I'd like to keep it revving below 7000 but I don't really have any good reasons for that number just seems like very high piston speeds with the big 4.25"+ arm. Not sure on converter size. I am going to send PTC a dyno graph and what I want to do with the car and let them decide for me.
What do you guys think of working with people like Shafiroff, Reher-Morrison, Steve Schmidt etc? They have pump gas street motors that seem to make this kind of power but I've heard their dyno numbers might read a little on the high side at times?
What used components or good bargains are out there? And what is the best head? I'm always hearing the same three it seems: AFR, Dart Pro 1, and the BMF stuff. What will make the most power for me or is that a debate in itself?
