What intake will you be running? I am assuming that the heads are not ported? If you run a good single plane intake such as a Victor you should be making around 400HP.

I'd say at least 42 horsepower. Probably more. No, I'd say definitely more.

It sounds like you're pretty serious about power. Why not invest in some time on a dyno and get everything tuned up perfectly. Then you'll be hitting those ET's you're after.

If all else fails, add some sponsorship stickers. Those are worth at least 4 HP each.

i ran it on my engine analyzer and you have 323 hp at the flywheel.
115 octane is alittle much for that motor.

way more

THOSE sponser ship stickers are worth
way more then that...

I have 75 sponsers that were good for 300+ parts===200k and they still support me and i am nobody---to be sure in the high performance world......

FACT =is that anybody with a good visible idea...can get untold sponsers,,,,you just got to give something very visable back....
BUT

all high performance compinies want the public to buy there parts not just racers===high volume.....so any acorn like me can get sponserships up the wasooo
with a plan....anyone really serious about getting sponsered can contact me here and for a part-joke----i'll teach you how to get them.....

we have more sponsers on our project then many famous nascar racers or dragsters,,,,,,,,,,

and -like me needing to know how much hp you get---get thee to a dyno---and i'll bet you got 325hp---at the rear wheels.....just a guess----but you'll smile when you see how close i am....

NO FOOLING ABOUT THE SPONSERSHIPS-------SEE ATACHED PHOTO

You'll make in the 400's for sure, but your car can't be driven on the street, well, not very easily anyway, it will drive you nuts. This setup is not a daily driver or even a weekend cruiser car, to much cam, too much heads.

Yeah, we were just havin some fun. Personaly, I think the only prob with this being streetable is the spool. It puts a lot of stress on the rear end going through the turns. That, and running the 94+ octane gets expensive. The part about the cam and heads is just gonna make it kind of a slug in the lower r's which isn't the best street application.

Well, lumpy cams usually mean high reving motors, which are not the best street machines. It really depends on how you want the motor to perform. Can you handle having an "over cammed" street car that's sluggish in the lower r's, or do you want more of a 1/4 mile killer? With the description in the beginning of your thread, it really sounds more like a trailered strip car doesn't see any street time.
