Haven't posted in 3 years LOL. Here's the latest...Still going with the stock block set up...Only motor changes sense 2012 was a new set of valve springs and T&D shaft rockers with a lot more learning/tuning.... Enjoy!

would love a 9.99
7psi. :D


I enjoyed the vid. She just goes. No hi-rev launches, no showy staging - just press the pedal and she flies. :tup: Something to be said for higher average power, lower weight, and good set-up.

515 HP @ 7,243 RPM on a stock block it will not make it long. my 347 made 508 at 6500 and I'm at the max of a stock block
Depends on your definition of long? Still running strong for 5 years...It is more like 540 ish HP now with more tuning and in perfect conditions it has gone a best of 9.80 @138.9 @ 2,700 lbs. I agree that you never know how long it will last, but there are a lot of variables to longevity.
