It made 350rwhp at 5,200 rpm
but power band was getting choked off early from shorty headers.
I'm getting AEM computer installed right now and
should have some new rwhp numbers with LT headers in a day or so.

i would like to at least put forged pistons to help with compression but if i do this will i still be able to spray later? do kind of carb do u think i should go with?
