I just wanted to point out it's very easy to reach that power level on a stocker with something like a procharger.
A few simple changes like you made, and you can excede that level as you have done.
A great example of a route Basham can take and keep stock like drivability.

That route is also more expensive...
I just got my quote back for my Procharger and it was 11K+....8500 just in parts.

How do you like the 4.10 with the S/C? I am thinking I'm going to want a 3.73 or even 3.42. I have 4.11 now.

They are fun but useless lol... I got the rear for $1500 used and those where the gears that were on there. Im switching to 3.73s. 4th gear tops out at 125mph @ 6700rpm. Not enough MPH for me as i cross the 1/4 @ 128 and dont like to shift to 5th.
Edit: This is with a 25.5 in tall tire
Plus first goes by so damn quick that as soon as you hit the throttle you are shifting already lol

That's what I figured...

this T/A is the fastest car ive driven so no i havent touched anything over 320
and now learning that long blocks are what i need to be looking at...
i looked some more. i think ive narrowed to 3
402/408 stroker or the 402 LS2 or the 383 LS1?
Most expensive is the 402/408 and cheapest is the 383
as for options...im stumped. so opinions please
Lets re-due my goals shall we?
lets shoot for 400-450ish? cam'd if needed (preferibly small)
i guess i got a little blood thirsty after getting beat by that Z06
(plan for boost in 5 years ***possibly***)
and during that five years...rear tranny blah blah blah

With that power goal in mind, the crate LS6 will get you close with headers, exhaust and a tune, and it's cheaper than anything you have listed.
If you want a tad more power, you could stab in a smallish cam before you install the engine.
From there the price goes up.
