Default Early Shortblock Christmas Present

Will be picking up my new shortblock soon to replace my current "timebomb".Current shortblock is a 462 with TRW's ,reconditioned stock rods machine shop build.It has held up great since 2009 has supported over 550hp and enabled my car to dip into the 10's.The new shortblock was offered to me and I couldn't pass it up.466 cu inch with BBC crower billet rods,light weight CP pistons,balanced assembly and meticulous assembly.The builder calls it bulletproof for my needs.

I'm pretty sure a few here have heard of Mike Voycey ,I'm lucky enough he is the one building and selling me the engine.

SD Performance is doing a bit of work to the current SD 290cfm KRE heads and some minor intake work.We are aiming for about 620 hp on pump gas, docile street engine.It should be one of the more powerful real street builds based on a 455 block.
