ls2 heads with bigger valves and ported and polished heads,
titanium springs and hardened push rods
1.8 roller rockers
performance cam 264 i think.

5000 which was a bargain i think, also it revved to 8250 if that helps we have limited knowledge here in the uk on v8 tuning and power,

Thats spinning very high! It can be done, but isnt very common. Anymore specs on the cam? There are pretty built ls2s that arent even dishing out that much power even with nice heads.

Very possible. 650 bhp is at the crank. Most fully "built" ls1's that make 500 at the wheels are at about 625 or so at the crank.

That is certainly possible, not too difficult either considering the RPM it turns and that bhp is usually measured at the flywheel and is not reduced by drivetrain losses.
