About 425 HP at the crank

We built a very similar engine for a friends car, using maxracesoftware et
analyzer and his time slips; this is what I come up with. I don't have
experience using this software so I could be way off.

I know a guy who bought an ElCamino with a heeeaaalthy 454 big block, and it wouldn't hardly turn a tire, but launched very well. After a week or so of worrying, they opened the tail gate and it was 1/3 deep in concrete.

No kidding.
