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.

She is an automatic. I replaced the input shaft with a Level 10 shaft. I also put in a Precision Industries 3200 rpm converter and run a PA deep pan and a JDM catch can.

You will definitely need to upgrade your clutch and you will have to replace your flywheel anyway(Kellogg crankshaft is 8 bolt, your stock is 6 bolt). Your rear should be fine unless you have done (or will do) alot of burn outs LOL.

I am totally satisfied with the B326 build, just as I have always been with everything I have gotten from Brenspeed. This was the first time I ever had them install anything, as I usually do it myself. But when it came down to installing basically a whole brand new engine, I just don't have the facilities anymore to do it (plus this is my daily driver and I can't have it down too long). Great customer service is rare these days, and Brenspeed has always delivered for me.
I think I'd turn that into my weekend warrior and get a econo box for the daily drive.

Nice man. I'm hoping to do a 326 in my future. I just have to get the money together for it.
