Tom is right. Tame your enthusiasum a bit, remembering this is a 327. If you want really big numbers change to a 350 or a 383. The 327 only needs about 90 % of what a 350 does to get similar behavior. In this case behavior and performance are different. Smaller heads, a slightly smaller cam, good chamber design and proper compression will create a drive anywhere combination that offers good performance.
