    It went 420 HP and an apparent 800 plus ft lb on dyno. Heads untouched not matched to Intake I told him to do it but his builder knew better. He's not interested in running qtr he just wants a 600rwhp clevo in his ute.

    600 at the wheels in it's current state, will need a shiny Jimmy on top, or a Blue bottle in the boot.

    A little blower and some meth will do it easily but pistons and pins wont last too long.
    I'd probably go with the bottle option, cheaper and easier....

    Why 600rwhp... just so he can say “I’ve got 600hp at the wheels”?
    Although It’s not great that he didn’t get what he asked and paid for.

    If it’s a shop surely there is some sort of ombudsmen that can help him out.

    Who did he use.

    Nah not naming shop and no can't do anything about it. Yeah he could claim 600hp but he's adamant on why he wants and won't claim shit unless it does

    That's just the figure he's had in mind over the last 15 years he's had his ute its sentimental to him and I don't question why 600hp but if that's what he wants why tell him no

    Competition Engines do some high HP cracker Clevo's, would be good to get his thoughts if nothing else.
    Ray Ward also used to build these things for the Pro Stock guys and know's how to get them singing.

    If he didn't mind using a Windsor he could track down a C3 Nascar engine would give him the power he's looking for for reasonable money.

    Didn't know Dart did a Cleveland block, I knew they did a Windsor block with Cleveland journals.

    They normally use the Arrow blocks over here for anything serious.
