    Mast Inline heads and a Kinsler ITB are the keys to this beast....
    I just got a chubby

    I hate to say it, but I really think the F.A.S.T. intake bandwagon is why most of the 408 strokers are maxing out around 550 rwhp....can't use them to turn a stroker much past 7,000

    Never had mine on a dyno, but I have beaten every sport bike that tried to run me, and my GTO weighs 3765 lbs with me and a half tank of gas

    Why not run the vxr4 and spray? It would be a good all around street/ strip cam, plus being under .600" lift your valve springs would last a good long time being just a good set of beehives like the PAC springs.

    I'd recomend it for a good bump in power over a stock cam, and with an ok tune would still have very good street manners......first I went with a 220/224 (it was too small for my taste), then stepped up to a 238/242 (I liked it, but probably too big for most people to like on the street)

    Well the spray will be going on the black racecar I just bought. Not looking for something huge or crazy and not looking to make a billion hp. Just good solid all around cam that I can have fun with. And I was looking at going bigger with their trickflow head/vrx cam kit for the racecar and wanted to try the little one out first.

    That's the only problem.....the term "streetable" is SO subjective to personal taste lol, but I think you are more like me and like your setups mildly bitchy, and on the more aggresive side

    Yup. We think alike. Streetable I mean to deal with on nice days and weekends.

    ...better not look up the heads then.

    For this build it was the ONLY option in fully optimizing the combo.

    thats like looking at the 32v sbc cylinder heads. There bad ass but will cost you about the same as a supercharger.

    Not really Matt....its more like building a combo from the ground up with a goal and purpose in mind.

    The intake is pricey, but a sheetmetal or FAST would have not worked as well. Wasn't going to leave power on the table.

    Out of curiousity, what intake would you have gone with that allowed these heads (Mast Inline) and cubes to perform as they should in addition to packaging under a 4th gen cowl?

    Im not knocking your build by no means. quite the opposite really its good seeing something different. Thats what i was going getting at by comparing your build to the 32v small block heads. Something thats not been done already or not done as commanly often seen as a Fast intake.
    Me personally i build on a budget. i go with what works and still gets me down the track that i can afford. That engine you have cost probably half what my house does.

    your ls1 intake is killing you. think you would be a little closer to the 400whp benchmark with the ls6 intake considering my numbers were through an auto, unlocked converter, and some pretty high iats.

    yep exactly. It breathes good on the exhaust end but it is like breathing through a straw right now.
