On the dyno it made peak power at 6400 rpm and peak torque at 4800 rpm. The use of a single-plane intake would of pushed the peak power up 200-300 rpm.
This is similar to what i'm expecting with my new camshaft in my 400, glad to hear that my thoughts aren't complete BS if someone has done something similar before
255/262 @ 0.050 on 108 with 0.625 lift after lash, 400, e-heads, single plane EFI intake, 5000 converter but 3.89 gears for now. Just getting the heads milled for 11.5 CR and setting up for new springs. Should be a healthy street car but at 3800lbs, it won't be turning the earth off its axis. Previous 242/248 hyd roller and 10.2 CR ran 11.7 @ 115 at that weight with a pretty horrid 60', so hopefully i'll get it back together and tested before we have some cool weather, it's averaging between 30-40degC lately (86-104degF).
