I have done alot of research on many different forums on how to rebuild my engine. I have chosen to go with almost everything Trick Flow Specialities. I've replaced everything except the crankshaft. I am still in the middle of the building process & kind of skeptical to the actual horespower/torque gain I am going to come up with. Here are a list of modifications:

TrickFlow:
Twisted Wedge Track Heat (170 Heads)
Chromemoly Pushrods
Flat Top Froged Pistons (.030 over)
Track Max Hydraulic Roller Tappet Camshaft (275/279,Lift .499/.510)
Stud Mount 1.6 Roller Rockers

I also currently have:

Edelbrock RPM Air-Gap Intake
Ford Racing Lightweight Pulleys
Ford Racing A/C Eliminator Kit
Ford Racing 9mm Spark Plug Wires
Holley 650cfm Double Pumper
Holley " Carb Spacer
K&N Air Filter
MSD 6AL
MSD Pro-Billet Distributor w/bronze gear
Zex Perimeter Plate w/Jets for 150shot

I am looking at running an engine dyno run before putting it back in. My problem is I have no expectations/limitations on what the engine may actually produce. I have searched near and far, but no answers. TrickFlow, Ford Racing, Edelbrock, CJ Pony Parts, Summit Racing, and my engine builder ALL couldn't even give me an estimated figure. I figured at best Trickflow would have done a similar setup using everything trickflow and seeing what they could get, but nothing. So if anyone could help at all I would greatly appreciate it. I am dying to figure out a roundabout number that I should expect nothing much over... Please consider the 150shot of nitrous. Thank You everyone that can help me out.:shiny:

My opinion, build it, run it. Enjoy it. Whatever it dynos. then it is what it is. If the numbers are real low for the combo, then it would mean there is a problem.

Then run it at the track. dont set yourself up for disappointment by looking for a certain number. Big numbers dont always mean fast.:bigthumbsup
