Sounds like a pretty stout SBC. What trans and rear gear are you using? Best of luck on the whole project. Joe Corl

Is that Pontiac Blue I see their? I like Pontiac Blue. My 455 is probably going to stay Pontiac blue.:)
Re: ***The CDP Nova Stealth Street Fighter Engine***

The rest of the drivetrain consists of a TH350 trans with a 2600 RPM converter, and a 8.5 10-bolt with a spool and 4.11-1 gears. It should be very stout!

That engine paint color is actually bright Ford blue. The car is Primer Black with a bright blue interior.
