nothing wrong with a 750 for your car or a hydraulic cam.You are asking for 1.5 horse power per cubic inch.I dont see that much. the smaller cam and carb will make it more fun to drive and I guarantee you wont have any gas mileage concerns when you drive it.I go for a drive for a couple hours,including a coffer stop and a couple spirited accelerations and I spend 40 to 50 bucks on fuel.
If you want a daily driver that goes great and is a little better on fuel,copy an LS-3 build as close as you can afford or use a carb and be happy with close to 500 hp?
