I've got that grind in a 4.8, naturally aspirated for now. It idles tame and doesn't have much chop at all. Pulls clean to 7300 on motor. I'll take video and upload next week when I'm off work.

Your engine builder sounds like a guy who has spent too many years building Gen 1 SBCs.

You'll be in the 10s with no prob once you get the car sorted out. Good luck and have fun.

Very cool, thanks. Given results like that I'm surprised there aren't more single s366 combos out there.

Single S366 on a 4.8?

Well, I may have screwed up, not sure. Got a good deal on an S366 and was planning on just running it as a single on a 4.8. GenIV 4.8, 862 heads, one of those new turbo "Pro LS" camshafts from Sum...
