sbc 355
all forged rotating assembly 9:1 cr
stock gm heads
cam is .488 lift
summit high rise single plane intake manifold
full roller rockers 1.5 ratio
msd ecurve dizzy 15deg intial 30 total
profesional products throttle body efi 750 cfm
and a gt45 single turbo on top

the car take s little while to start i think may be due to the time it takes to build initial fuel preesure at start up
it idles at 15 inhg smoothly and it doesnt seem to miss at all on the road
What are you tuning it with? What heads, cam? What boost pressure? If its slapped together junk you may not be over 400hp.
