600+ would not be a fun daily driver. If I had to do the engine over, I would go with a new cast iron short block like 5Twenty did.If I were to do engine work wouldn't I be better off rebuilding from the block up and going turbo? Money wise to hp gained? But I would definatly kill myself with 600+ hp. Don't think that would be a good daily drive either :nono:
I'm sure it's already been said, but cracking 400hp NA is going to cost some change. If it's what you really want, then by all means, chase the dream. That's what I'm doing. It looks like the motor I wanted will be pushed to an indefinite timeframe, but I will be getting heads and cams at some point.So is this what I should be concentrating on then? How much more hp we looking at?
I wouldn't count on 60. I added stage 3 cams, heads and stroked the motor to 298 ci and I picked up 61.Im throwing in some Comp Cams and porting the heads. should get 60 hp. and cost 1,000 just for cams. Porting is being done myself for free but you got to know what you are doing.
