It will be a challenge to get that knid of power out of a 327 at the low 6000
RPM limit. This will demand the best head you can find. If porting is an option
the 170cc E-tec is a good choice, if not go with the AFR 180.

Forget about what the software is telling you about camshaft specs, get one
custom designed by a professional.

OK Tools.... Check it:

Ideally suited," indeed: The horsepower goal was blown away by a good 10 percent, as in 50-plus more horsepower than the goal. Peak power came at a not totally astronomical 7,100 rpm. And as impressive as 553 hp is from a 327, check out the torque numbers. Right off the bat, 433 lb-ft at 5,600 isn't a bad peak. But this thing's at 380 lb-ft by 3,900 rpm, and stays over 400 from 4,600 all the way to 7,200 rpm. It's a screamer-but one with an impressive and flat, useable torque band. "That's why we used the 195 Comp ported heads," reiterated Mamo. "Since this engine will spend more time on the street than at the track, we were concerned about the bottom end and throttle response as well as the top end power."
