    327 Small Block Chevy Engine Build - The 500HP Question

    Check out what it takes to get 500hp out of a 327 Small Block Chevy Engine with this build from JGM Performance Engineering.Often the hunt for horsepower starts with a question. You know the type: "Hey, I made 480 hp-how much more would I have to do to make 500?" That's exactly the query posed by Jeff Latimer of Valencia, California's JGM Performance Engineering, who had a good combo in hand: a small-block throwing down 420 lb-ft of torque to go with all those ponies. What makes the question compelling, though, is that those numbers came from a "mere" 327. So when we learned that JGM had teamed up with its neighbors at Air Flow Research to deliver an impressive reply to the 500hp question, we didn't have to be asked twice to check out the results.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I've been wondering what was possible with a 327 and what combo was best for it. The best part about it is that it's a 2 bolt with a stock crank!! I've been debating on replacing my 327 in my project with a stroker 350 or possibly an LS engine, but this gives me a great excuse to at least keep it a numbers matching car. Thanks again Ed

    Thanks for the inspiration! I'm parts collecting for my 73 Z, 327 steel medium journal, 400 block, 6.2" rods. AFR 190's, a 350 the hard way, or a really punched 327. I've always loved the 327 and not much of a fan of strokers.
