454 chevy punched out to 468, top-notch crank from Crower (the block/crank has been pushed past 1400 horse by previous owner, twin turbo!), Eagle H-beams with the good ARP bolts in them, TRW "12.5" pistons with domes milled to about 10.5:1 compression, Comp mech. roller with 300+ duration and .652 lift, RHS heads with 2.25/1.88 valves, Eddy Victor Jr. Manifold, AED-prepped 950 holley flowing about 1000cfm.

This in front of a loose stall converter (3000+, haven't floored it yet), Powerglide and 4.56 gears. I've brought her to 5000 rpm dipping about halfway into the throttle and the damn thing still makes me nervous. Maybe I could trade it for a small block? :-P

First start:
I'm proud to say that is the first time the engine is turned over with the starter.
