    You'll make well more than that easily.

    If your talking with COME, get them to put you in contact with Shane or Athol, plenty of Nitrous experience on Holdens.
    Ray Ward is another name but located south east if that isn't a problem, he will come to you though.
    Tony at Speedworks does some nice Nitrous combo's.
    Zoran at Competition Engines also does good Nitrous combo's.

My beef with it is you don't normally hear anyone building a 30 thou over 327 SBC calling it a 332, or normally if they stick a 350 crank in it and bore it oversize it becomes a 350 not a 355. Similar a 30 thou over 308 is still normally called a 308, not normally called a 312 Holden V8 although technically it is just over 312ci. Do you call a 30 thou over 304 a 308 or 309? You could but you probably wouldn't. And if being pedantic enough to call a 3.48" stroke 304/308 a 355, it can only be that if its 30 thou over. What about if it was 20, 40 or 60 over which i'm sure some are? I get it if the displacement is not an original displacement as built by the original manufacturer, like people call a 3.75" stroke 4" bore engine a 383, and it is that if its 30 thou over, but it also can be 377ci if standard bore or 389-ish ci if it is 60 thou. In the end I like to call them by their original manufacturer's displacement if that exists, and for the 3.48" stroke Holden V8 that is a 350ci/5.7L. That way there is no confusion. Otherwise we could be calling +0.060" rebuilt 173's a 179 or 179 a 186!

    Sorry for the sidetrack legs71! As others have said above there are plenty to choose from, if you buy a kit from a reputable source it is probably not that much different to building the engine as a 304 or 308, other than clearancing and the kit should come with instructions for that anyway.

    I've always called a .030" over 327 Chev a 331, whoops .

    So I think you want a 600hp with NOS 355 OP, the next question is how much NOS?

    A 150 shot wont require anything super special. you wont need a forged crank. a scat rotating assembly and forged pistons should do the trick with some tidy VN Heads and compression. Its ring gaps and RPM that will kill the motor. Most Nitrous Manufacturers will sell 150 kits for stock engines. Any thing more and you you have to start tailoring.

    Thats what you put into a standard motor, what about the rest......lol
    If your gonna do it, give it plenty.

    Nitrous express do some nice kits, easy to use and ramp the gas on gently, you'll be able to get a decent shot into it.

    Follow TK's sticky for 450hp and add the 150 shot- there's your 600hp.

    Tuning this nitrous motor is another thing, altogether.

    If Ford can call a (rounded to nearest ci) 352ci engine a 351 then you can call a 332ci engine a 331!

    Do you want just parts or build as well? COME would be a decent start, have a look on their website.
    I know your just havin a joke. But didn't hdt before they closed do a 5.8 in something? Obviously limited run.
    I dont know if they used 3.48/4.03 or maybe made there own 3.5/4.0 combo.
    Could be wrong, some correct me aye

    Isn't pro-stroke just up the road from Wallan then you have Cartledge down in Campbellfield. Builds plenty of skirace motors and 355's. Has his own dyno as well.
