    what hp/tq to expect?

    with my mods list below, what kind of numbers might i expect with a good tune? sorry if this isnt in the right spot. my block is being rebuilt with all new bearing and arp fasteners. also having some forged pistons and new rings installed. ive been told 400rwhp is attainable but the engine builder says he isnt thinking so, and thats why im asking. thanks

    I'm not seeing any power changing mods listed.... if the stuff you listed is at the factory specs I don't think you'll see an increase in hp at all. Unless there's more you forgot to list....

    I see no signs of a cam, so I am going 12.5-12.7 range.

    I didn't pay any attention to the mod list. I just saw 'close to 400' and assumed a cam of some sort.

    Either way....HP output means nothing. Go race it.

    Is his signature listed with his post? It doesn't show up for me if he did. But with those mods I'd say under 400 hp.
