well guys a few years ago i started with a vortech v2 kit from capa and a flash tune at bpt i think i had back then about 300-350hp we added a few more bits and pieces to get 370 then more and got 400+hp.
then it came down to our last task of pullin the motor out and giving it a few more cubes and heads and not to forget the intake or extractors we got 524-526hp the injectors (42 pounders "for sale") were strugling to keep up so as ya do we gave it some 60's well bugger me we saw 536.5hp!!!!!! and it also did a burn out on the dyno!! on the street this thing is a weapon 8-) i'm going to go look for some fatter treads lol.
i'm still using the standad block for how long i don't know but it'll be a good test the gear box is still the t5 (upgraded clutch) it has a distincted whine about it lol so we'll see with that too

just thought i'd up date ya all and say thanks to terry at bpt motorsports for the time and serious amounts patiance from the start to where we are at now the dude is a mad scientist 8-)
