    Look at what I'm getting...

    Hello

    Instead of doing that painting I was originally planning on, I'm doing this.. The chips from the hurricane are so small that you can bearly see them anyway. So, I'll leave the paintjob for later on. Especially since it's not nearly as expensive as I thought it would be.

    Nice. Just don't spray it with the KB hyper's in there.

    Re: Look at what I'm getting...

    So no spray with those, huh? Why? Weak? Bad history? How about turbo or supercharging in the future? I doubt I'll ever need any more speed than I get with this setup - but who knows?

    Hey Sal it's a beast but you may want to be careful with their specs, the hp-ft/lbs charts look like they were generated manually with MS Excel.

    Nice Sal. I'm actually eyeballing a 502 for my engine swap

    Shadowlvr, look before you jump. I thought about that until I discovered there is no EGR on any 502. If you don't have to worry about satisfying any ecm sensors with EGR details, and you don't have to worry about emissions, rock and roll. But, if you do, you might want to stay with the Gen II small block. Make it an LT4 with juice.

    The hypers are brittle. They have a bad reputation for failing under nitous and forced induction. There are plenty of people who think they're fine, but be careful. Personally I'd try to steer clear and go for forged.

    FL has no emissions issues. So a 502 can be gotten away with. The other option I've been eyeballing is a forced induction 383 or 396 stroker. Would be forged internals of course. 375 horse and 440 torque isnt enough for my ego.

    WTF is with the Turbo/super/nitrous. Displacement, displacement, displacement. That engine will have balls naturally aspirated. Have fun and don't be nuts.

    Re: Look at what I'm getting...

    Being nuts is part of the fun. My goal has grown to about 600 horses on an everyday driver. And, I want it to run smooth, not some fat lopey cam, and no power below 5000 rpms. I want massive torque from 2000 rpms up, and horsepower from hell. No more being moderate. :P

    How much would it cost to put in forged pistons if I decide to go with forced induction in the future?
