Could have gotten even bigger numbers with Stage 3 heads, bigger cams and bigger injectors, but since this is my daily driver, we went conservative to preserve driveability.
The Torque is simply unbelievable, even when not in boost. The torque comes in low, right around 2k rpm, which is perfect when cruising (even in OD) and you need to pass a slowpoke or something. You do not even need to downshift or kick it down. It just pulls like a freight train.
Under boost, it is scary fast. She will break the tires loose at any speed. I really need some MT's.
When my car is not a daily driver I will be putting this engine and an edlebrock e-force in my car (hopefully within a year). Depending on the price I may keep the stock heads and cams, but hopefully I'll be able to afford pretty much the same build you did. If you don't mind me asking what was the final cost for everything? Also, I didn't read all of your sig and I'm too lazy to go back now, do you have a manual or auto? Is it the stock transmission? Stock rear end?
Whenever I do my build I'm already planning on beefing up the clutch because I'm sure the stock clutch will go quickly with that power. I am wondering how well the transmission and rear end will hold up though.
