Mike estimates power in the 800-900hp range. The cam is somewhat small, but will give me some driveability on the street.
I have also ordered a stg 2 TH400 from Jim W complete with a 9.5" 3500rpm stall.
The best news is;
tomorrow I will be picking up the shortblock from the shipping yard to see it for the first time
I will post pics when I get it all unwrapped. The shortblock is complete ready for the heads, tunnelram etc then starting.
