check out this 454 build.

http://www.superchevy.com/technical/...ild/index.html

565hp with 8.25:1 cr, cheapo summit flat tappet hydro cam and stock pistons.

Then 736hp with a little 150hp shot of NO2.

all for $2500.


You don't need that big a cam or that much compression. 9.8:1 is enough for a 454 and a cam with around 250 degrees duration at 0.050" lift. Should be able to make more hp than you can stick down on the ground.

that with a 3500 stall, 4.11 gears, in a lighten nova should get you easily in the low 11's at 120mph
