Decided on a Griggs Watts link, LCAs, and Torque arm. Pretty much the entire rear suspension and I'm only slightly over budget.

Gotta say I'm pretty excited. I'll post up in my build thread when...

Agreed. Debating all that now is a bit premature.

As far as being overkill, from my discussion with Bruce Griggs it seems like the urethane heim jointed stuff is a good compromise. I haven't even...

So what about the Shelby 1000s? They use the mammoth kit and are street legal. I'm gonna say screw emissions if I go this far, I figure there shouldn't be any reason the same supercharger shouldn't...

Hence the intent of doing a 5.0 with a 4.2L supercharger.

That said, I would still be replacing the block. You can't run 1000hp on a stock S197 block.

Great write up.

Just out of curiosity, besides the 4 link rear and chassis stiffness, what differences would you make in the write up for a S197?

All together? Yea, that number seems accurate.

As for the engine I'm estimating the 15-25k range. The block is only 4k, the original supercharger is 5k, so that leaves some wiggle room for...

So IF I did LCAs, I would probably order a Heim/Urethane jointed Watts link from Griggs as well as ball joint LCAs. That actually may work out well because I need to change out my gears as well.

Brenspeed rates their engine at 1000hp. If I bought one I would shoot for a close to that as I could get.

I'm not particularly surprised by that. However if I ever do get around to building my engine, having pipes that size would be nice, as I'll probably stroke it to a 302. Brenspeed has a pretty nice...
