Been playing with a computer dyno program, seems like everything comes up 400 hp 400 ft lbs torque and I think if I could put in a 2000 cfm carb it would output 8000 hp. Curious what some real-life combos produced. Not looking for Stroker or boosted applications (unless you just want to show off).

I am running a Performer RPM setup with a flat tappet cam. I would like to find another 50 clean hp - 450 FWHP and torque with a flat torque curve - still be a midrange motor that can dig hard out of a corner from 2000 to 5500 without a shift (Autocross).

As I mentioned recently, I bent a valve and by the time you get valves, springs, cam cam and lifters, and machining, plus selling used heads cheap, you can get a nice nest egg to compare a new top end against. So, just curious what you 351 guys got at the dyno and what you put in to get it...
My dyno numbers are in my sig on my windsor.
