    500rwhp all motor on a stock cubes LS1.....may I suggest a good prayer class.

    without spraying or going FI I don't think your goals are very realistic. Not bashing, just my opinion. I would say look at some really top of the line heads with a fast 90/90 setup and a really nice sized cam and you can make serious power....I don't think you'll make 500 to the wheels but you'll make nice power. Something else to think about also, when you get into those power levels your stock rear won't last long and neither will your clutch.

    I would say the first thing to do is start doing searches and just read so you have a better understanding of cams in general. It's always best to have knowledge going in and make informed decisions than to just follow someones advice. Start here. cam faq

    You need to talk to the experts. I have built a good many engines, but I still ask for advice from those who practice this for a living. A good source to start with is Patrick Guerra @ http://www.guerragroup.com/motorsports

    He can help you with picking the right cam and combo, but you have to be honest about what you are going to do. You have to make sacrifices in some areas if you want a powerful, yet reliable ride. Take your time and consult the experts. The guys at Speed, Inc can help. They are putting my short block together whenever the parts come in.

    If your wanting to make those #'s don't forget to upgrade your drivetrain as well. All that horse power means nothing if you cant put the power to the ground. Your stock 10 bolt will shurely not handle that without blowing up in a grenade like fashion.

    Put the first couple of grand into chassis and suspension modifications, a lot less if you do all the work yourself, you dont need a ton of hp to go quick. 500 hp is a lot, I run mid 12's with 309 rwhp, I cant even imagine how quick it would be with 200 more hp. Good luck and have fun.
