I've never heard of a rent-a-stall at a garage, but that is absolutely genious. I wish I had one around here (campus 5-0 doesn't like parking lot maintenence)

I know it'* a good idea I really did not want to say something that might let someone get a jump on me. But I need allmost 2M to get it off the ground in PA where I'm going to go back home to. Most of that is land/building.
As for HP well here'* the full crate motor offer by the place I got the heads and intake-http://www.sdpc2000.com/catalog/1578...rip-Engine.htm

Their cam is a bit differnt but I should get about the same results.
Funny I look at as my SSEi has the same HP is my IROC till now.
Depending on who you read it from possably more from the factory.

I want to see you start it up...

I love seeing a chevy 350-400 come to life...

A friend built a 400 SB 4 bolt mains.... The motor was for the strip more than anything... Thats what the guy wanted it for... It had Flat top pistons, I forget which heads, but it was ported intake and exahust, and had oversized valves... We had to have the small venting holes drilled into the heads as I think they were actually 350 heads... Had upgraded springs and all... The cam was a little better than .500, Solid lift at that... All attached to a turbo 400( they managed to kill the turbo 350 )... Changed the rear end to a LSD... OMG was that car freaky strong... I loved that motor...

I got my headers back from JET-HOT. It only took 2 weeks. You never know I toasted them.

Not yet but maybe this weekend. If anyone in the Hampton Roads area would like to check out the install PM me. It will be fri/sat/sun @ NAS Oceana auto hobby shop.
This car has been "down" for over 2 years I am so excited to get this going.

Worked all weekend but too many small but PITA probs came up, as I figured some would, so I'm still happy with where it is at right now. I'm busy next weekend but the weekend of the 15th, we may have light off.
