And no one has ever accused magazine dyno numbers of being low. They are ALWAYS “best case”.
If the motor was spun faster this combo would make more power for sure. Maybe as much as 400rwhp. But they didn’t print the graph with the RPM’s so its impossible to tell what they were spinning it too. That being said to extract everything this combo has to offer it would need to be spun up toward 7500rpm. And a stock shortblock wouldn’t last long under those conditions. So for a max HP effort that can use the top end combo to its fullest you are looking at a minimum of $3500 more for a shortblock.
My tuner has a 2010 “drag car” with the following combo:
-FRPP Stage III heads (same as the BBR’s, they all come from Livernois)
-The 550 series Comp cams
-FRPP long tubes, H-pipe and Magnaflow mufflers
-High dollar forged bottom end
On race fuel it dyno’d at 430ish spinning to 7750rpm.
