I personally wouldn't build that engine unless I had the money to finish the forced induction setup right away. Wont be very peppy without the boost to compliment the setup.

That sounds like a VERY expensive idea (especially going with the Banks Twin turbo kit). Do you have the money or is this a 5-10 year type deal?

For one, Id seriously do some reading about forced induction as you can build a turbo kit for a FRACTION of the cost of what Banks wants for theirs. Secondly I'd seriously consider a Fuel Injection setup especially if you are going to go with a Turbo'd engine. You can make your HP goes out of a smallblock, its very possible. But it will require a lot of time and money, and with the amount of boost your going to have to run, you'll want ever precaution taken and many of those precautions can only be taken using a Fuel Injection setup.

Just some food for thought.
