They'll hold about 700hp flywheel

Forget the girdle, all they are good for is high rpm engines
to help stablize the crank, they do nothing for block strength

The coupe I just sold was making over 600rwhp with a F4TE block. It had been making that power for almost 2 years when I sold it. I'd push a '71 to ~650rwhp and 6500rpm before I started to worry.
