I want it streetable, not some 700hp+ monster. I want to be able to go cruise around also. 550hp I think is a resonable goal for a 408 and still have some manners to it. 6000rpms is around what Im looking for, 1 the motor will last longer, 2 gives a good rpm range for a cam that doesnt have to be insane. Pushing it through a 3550, 4.10 gears, only running alternator and power steering pump.
But at the sametime, a mild 302 with forced induction to pull 550hp is pretty easy too, even on a stock BLOCK(not shortblock) and get some good life out of it. Its cheap now to get a forged 331 scat kit with a 9 compression
