    I'd think even a lazy 454 tuned spot on should do 400hp and 400 tq, give or take 10 either way on both.

    I will say 428hp and 485lbs. tq. with the Eddy carb and that cam. If you were to put a cam in there that is on a 108° LCA with a lift of about .550 and a good Holly 750 or maybe a Holley 850 I will then say 465hp and 510lbs. tq.

    You win so far. It made 381 horsepower and 457 ft. Lbs. torque. He’s going to play with timing and try to get alittle more out of it tonight.

    How much timing did you put in the engine? and what kind of fuel did you test with?. My peanut port engine likes between 40 to 44° of timing with the low compression.
