383 posts, 383 clevo... nice :)

Depends on what think is streetable.
I run a 408 with solid roller with 662 lift and 262 duration
at 50 thou and would drive it daily if i didn't have a company
car. Its actually quite nice on the street and runs real nice
in the 60 zone, light to light. Your cam will let let grandma drive
down the pub to buy some beers!!!!
