Another Vortec question!

What is the maximum power you've seen produced on a pump gas 350 with Vortec heads (ported of course). I've seen 530 from a hyd. roller cam, and 500 from a solid flat tappet. I'm curious to see if anyone has crested the 600 mark.

This is flywheel of course, naturally aspirated.

In theory, to make 600hp, the heads would need to flow about 300cfm on the intake at max valve lift. Not sure a set of ported vortecs could do that.

Yea, that's the theory, but there are a lot of ways to push the envelope, I'm looking to see how far its been pushed.
