Nah, the LS7 is 505hp. Right now I'm only about 400-425. When I am finished, it'll be about 550-600!
it'* still better. It'* not always about peak horsepower that makes it better.

Oh I agree, I love turbocharged engines... Can't wait to see what he'll do with some fine tooth tuning. he'll be able to really crank the boost on early with the 4t80, and nail it on the upper end as well..
