Gonna need more info. What vehicle will be the recipient of this motor? How much will the vehicle weigh? What's the static compression ratio of the motor? What cam is in the motor? What's the rear gear?

It would be simple to say that you will need two 500's on a Jimmy, but we don't even know the type of blower you are considering.
