    Default 383 that has blown my mind

    Hi Guys . I had a well known NZ engine builder build me a 550hp 383 in2011 ,it had sat in my garage from then till 4 months ago.!! I turned the crank maybe 4 times in that 6 yr period. VN block ,4 bolt mains, come 383 crank, USA eagle H beam rods, JE pistons, 10.1 comp, crow custom roller 545 lift. VN heads race ported and polished flow (548hp)253cfm, 8x50 mm throttle bodies, 42lb injectors , Holley hp computer and loom , 8 coil packs, 270 amp alternator. T400 trans. Final tune friday 447kw 599hp flywheel 6200rpm. It made 399.34hp atw or 385 ft lb atw (530nm) atw on a dynojet . If only i didnt have a T400 lol . Skids on.

    Who built it? 599hp from only 253cfm at only 6200rpm is very impressive.
    I guess that induction is working a treat.
    Ya gonna race it?
