Ok first off before anybody posts please read my posts clearly!

I am looking for 425 to 450 BRAKE HORSEPOWER in case people missed that.

And I have never said 500 hp at all, and I did also mention that i want to be 425-450 AFTER EVERYTHING is said and done.

Just with the stroke,heads,intake and headers I think I'll be right around 330 Whp

I see alot of people running 260-270 Stock and a few more that dynoed 275-290 with bolt ons and tune.

And 4 reasons on using the M60 heads

1) availability/cost for me
2) smaller chamber so more compression
3)Cams are a little hotter
4)two row teeth for timing chain

Other than that Identical

And "BUDGET" means 10-12k not a few thousand. By budget I mean about 50% of a built engine by VAC or other builder. I am looking to have a built by me engine not paid for bc I make tons of money. Then I can be proud of MY work.
