Oh, the humanity!!! That thing should be able to pull down small mountains!!
Speaking from sad experience, be sure to look closely at the rest of the drivetrain and verify that it's all ready to handle upwards of 575 lb. ft. of torque. This is going to be a bunch of fun to drive. You might want to invest in a good radar detector or start a fund just for "Minor Traffic Infractions" .
If you could keep your foot out of it, (depending on what gear ratios you're running) you MIGHT get better MPG than with the stock 460.

Good Lord.
I am envious. More cubes=more better.
I did notice the use of the word "chevy" in the parts list :roll:
I know, I know...
It'll be like Christmas in March in Montana.

the running gear can handle it 8-) 10.25 sterling and E4OD transmission same stuff that lives behind the power strokes
3.55 gears with overdrive 75MPH about 1500 rpm

yeah that chevy stuff kind detracts from the whole thing :lol: but that how they build these stokers with little chevy rod journals

If those parts were miss-shipped to IL I wouldn't complain you know.
What are they getting for decent stroker parts these days? I've been having thoughts myself. 400 ponies aren't quite enough from my 460 anymore.

that kit I listed hit the 2600 mark

you can go cheaper by using a cast crank instead of forged

a cast would be just fine in my application I got the forged one for the warm and fuzzy feeling

stick with Scat stuff though is the word on the street

Sounds to me like its gonna be a tuning nightmare. EFI heads are the worst heads ever made and your gonna have to convert it to mass air to get anything out of it.
