588 NA 496 F1 Procharger

So im having a bit of a dilemma so i figured i would ask you all for a opinion.

I have at the moment in my camaro a 468 ( stock 4 bolt 60 over ) callies crank and manley rods speed pro pistons 11.5 -1 iron 049 oval port heads 1,90 2,225 manley swirl polished valves comp cams sk kit 305 h cam vitor jr 454-o holley hp 850 DP hooker super comp 2.25 headers msd 6al pro billet distributor.

The motor is fine and runs storng in my grand am it ran 11.19 at 129 on a 27 10.5 slick. But after going to this extreem on my camaro im pretty well convinced i should build something bigger to make the chassi work.

My two options so far are a 496 world block callies or eagle crank and rod kit 7.5-1 JE pistons canfield heads Edelbrock Victor 454-r Carb shop blow through 1000cfm lunati solid roller F1 pro charger and air to air intercooler retain headers and ignition

or 588 inch the larger canfield heads 350cc lunati rotating kit and cam world block Dart intake 4500 and a Gary Williams 1150 cfm 4500 series carb


Both combos have apeal to me and a few problems the procharger is nice for hood clearance yet very noisey from what i have heard on two friends cars the 588 is nice but ill have to motor plate the car to get the hood clearance for the 4500 air cleaner assembly and should be more consistant from what i have read since niether of my friends with the prochargers have ran their cars more then twice at the track .


Anyone using a procharger that races weekly/ bi weekly and runs consistant numbers ? Any comments will be appreciated before i jump into this wallet first


Regards Mike

Prochargers are cool, and make great hp. You will get ALOT more hp out of the procharged motor, but the 588 would be stronger, easier to tune, and more consistant if you are going to be running brackets. If you are after max hp and minimum time I would go with the procharged motor. If you are after consistancy, I would go with the 588. Also, if you have the kind of money that it would take to use a procharger, I would recommend going with the AFR 357cc heads. They are around $3000 a set, but are worth it. Here are some articles that show what they are capeable of.


This is a good pump gas combo:

Here is a good race fuel combonation:

Here is some validation for the flow numbers for the afr heads. (315cc in this case)

315cc advertised numbers from AFR.
