About 6 grand including the truck.
Ive followed all Matts builds, but come on man. The truck looked like ***, had no safety equipment, and never ET'd very well. Making a decent dyno number isn't even half the battle.

How many passes can you get out of a 370ci before you lift the heads as boost starts getting up there? The "real cost" is the cost of a 6 bolt heads setup if reliability is a concern.

At what power level? You don't need 6 bolt until you're making 4 digit power.

Figure a 370ci making 1000-1150 hp. With that much boost and 4 bolt heads, isn't it just a matter of time before head lift even if you pay mind to it's torque production and at what RPM it occurs? Safest bet is probably not making peak torque until 6000rpm to ease cylinder pressure at lower RPM's and using some ARP CA625 studs.

Yes like I said, 4 digit power is when I'd move to a 6 bolt and yes moving torque to the right will help. Running the best flowing heads and cam will help to keep the boost number as low as possible.
