i may catch flack on this from some old school rodders but dont let anyone talk you into a "port and polish" on your intake, the gains you get for either the money you shell out or time you spend doing it are by far not worth it, and in fact smoothing out your intake runners will have adverse affects on fuel attomization, remember smooth isnt always better, take a golf ball for example basically make this your own build, dont let someone else take control

375 horse, 400 ft/lbs. It will make a nice torquey street motor. The heads will be the limiting factor on this build.
