toddalin that engine is making 400 engine hp.the chasis dyno measures rwhp after accessories and driveline take up their share and exhaust too.

rock_dog a 327 does not really make big torque numbers,rev the little engine a bit higher and use a little more rear gear for the torque multiplier in the lower gears.A stock bottom end of a 327 can rev 6500 rpm and last with a good balance.I prefer a solid lifter cam especially for 327s
