    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

    Yes it is,,,but Basham wants 500 rwhp and a smooth idle. Can't have both without spending alot of green backs

    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.
