408 c3 headed sbf and 300 shot... i'm guessing is good for 900 to 950 hp as it sits... but i need so much more. i need to get to 1200-1500 hp and i'll need a way to manage the horsepower on small tires.. i'm thinking grid/davis as thats what the big tire no prep car has in it.. i'm familiar with it already and should be quick to learn..

thinking just adding a pro race fogger and maybe an sv1 carb to what i have and throw in one of my old converters from the big tire car...

use the plate for first kit.. bring on the fogger on down the street...

on a TRUE street i do well with what i have... but on a track or street thats been prepped and maybe all concrete, i need to get after it and go faster... that means i need to take both converters with me.. tight and the loose one i'm running now.

anyone else spraying whats equivalent to a 700 to 800 shot on a 408?
can it be done? how long will the stock 2 bolt cleveland block last?

i drank too much coffee today... 4am came early...

I have the makings of a 408 with four bolts mains if you like the idea of blowing one up. It also has screw in freeze plugs, but the pistons are the old TRW 2379's I think the number was(heavy). With stock rods(and SPS nuts on Pioneer rods), I doubt this shortblock would take the 300hp of NO2. Hint, the crank is a stock 4" throw, but it is a SBF technically.

Where's the green Corvette, out of the view, and which one is the lawyer?
