375 HP on an engine Dyno. I would definetely buy it especially if you have a use for it. I am also in Texas, so let me know where it is if you do not want it. The heads, rockers and fuel injection are all nice equipment.

The compression is a little on the low side, originally set up for a blower? I'd say with those heads, 282 roller, and the Box-R intake, it's got to be an easy 400hp, probably closer to 425.

I'm thinking it'll just brush the 400HP mark, with torque not far behind. Depending on the price, it could be a good deal or not.

I JUST FOUND OUT IT WAS BUILT ON A DYNO IT HAS ABOUT 100 DYNO PULLS ON IT IT WAS USED TO CHECK CAMSHAFTS.THE MOST POWER IT MADE WAS 450HP WITH A SOLID ROLLER CAM.WILL THIS EXISTING COMBO WITH THE XE282 WORK WITH A TURBO HOW MUCH POWER @10 PSI.

Not many people with turbos on the board here, 10psi might bump it to 520-530HP, if the engine could take it. Compression isn't too bad, you might have to run race gas but with that cam you might not. I think the engine could take it, but turbo's are very expensive.

Not sure if this still an active thread, but a couple years back Car Craft took a 5.0 roller engine and just changed the heads. They used the afr 165 or 185 with the factory roller cam and made 400hp. I don't remember if they kept the FI or not.
