what exactly does the carb rule say? some 500 based 2bbls can be made to flow way more than the stock rating depending on mods allowed.You said the rules were cast intake and exhaust manifolds 400 h.p will be a good mark to start with you can step up later.Now with that being said if you are just starting out a good reliable engine is far more important than all out power.A 355 with vortec heads flatops and small hydraulic cam that will run at a reasonable rpm with good tourque AND NOT BREAK every time you turn around will allow you to concentrate on learning to drive and set up the car.what is the tire rule beleive it or not it can be hard to hook up 300 horsepower on a dry slick track with small tires.And after you figure out setup and driving then upgrade the engine.
