When you get to the >250 HP stage....
I am very satisfied with the 150-shot plate kit I have on my BBC motor.
I'm not even considering going with 250 or more.
My motor could easily handle a 250 shot, but I would need to upgrade my fuel system to be safe. I don't really care to do that.

I have no goal or reason to try and go faster. My truck is super strong just the way it is. I have fun with it. That's all I need.
There comes a point when you just get tired of spending money and working on it all the time. I'd rather just drive it and have fun. It is what it is. I have satisfaction in building it myself. I don't have to be the "fastest" in order to have pride in my work.
