I would agree 870HP (1.85HP:CI) is def within reason given the parts list and engine size. Then it's just a matter of execution and peak RPM. Is this a pump gas combo?

I had a 5.7 based 395ci (3.915 x 4.100) with a 6.100 rod. It made 500/500 w/243's and lasted 20k miles but if I could do that combo over again I'd just do a 4" bore motor......which I later did with...

+1 for Crower shaft rockers. I've got them on my engine and I too have Brodix porter castings done by another shop. I'll be sure to check back once I get some miles on her.

It was discussed and the math came out to ~900HP but I'd have to give up the 5.3 block for a Dart LS Next deal. At some point the madness has to end and for me it is budget and down time.

Idle to 5500 is most important for a street engine? Maybe if you cruise the strip and hang in parking lots. I prefer to let her rip to 8500 when racing with my street engine.
