?? Who's $5k 'motor'?

The only mention I made of $5K was the cost of the induction system.

And either way, $500 or $5000, the engine comes unglued- which was my reason for pointing what I did, regarding the quality and cost of the parts needed to make a reliable 700 HP.

Which I personally wouldn't do w/a 355 SBC anyway- unless for some unknown reason I just had to have some of a racing class that required such a combination.

700 HP? Make mine a BBC, thanks just the same.
