And... how did you want it? Lol, you can't tell me you tore it all down and did a stock rebuild and just cleaned it up/powder coated a few things here and there. We know you better than that Nick!

Time to spill the beans!

:-P

I really didnt do a whole bunch to it; 10.5:1 pistons, polished rods, balanced, valve job, cams, imrc delete, shorty headers, and underdrive pulleys. I know it sounds like a lot, but honestly, thats pretty mild. It should still be good for 350-400 hp.

That's not really a lot. I mean, to some, it would sound like a lot, but I know what you mean. You are still running stock style heads, so I mean it is still very moderate. Polishing the rods should help to relieve any stress and make them stronger, and with a good balance, I wouldn't be afraid to spin a 4.6 to 7 grand, as long as your cams and valve springs will support that, and I would assume they will.

4 grand is too much for one of those cars. if you can find the right seller, you can usually get an entire running car for around 1500-2000
