What kind of hp drop would you expect with this build when it's checked at the wheels (if it is)?

Looks like a good combo. Should be lots of fun. 2thumbs

Bull, I've wondered that as well. I'll let the pros make the call on this one.

Wonder what exhaust manifolds would do to the power/torque  Any guesses?

No pro, but most dirvelines take up about 13-20% of the HP, I could be wrong.  But that is often the case. and does depend on a few factors.

That's an absolutely gorgeous torque curve, you guys are finally putting together with a 440 stroker what I've been doing with a 383 with a 440 crank, and I'm really liking the potential on the stealth heads in this region.
They appear to be exactly as advertised, its not a race head for high HP, although it would probably do a decent job if you port it out and match it with a good cam. For a street able head that makes an obscene amount of power, I think I'm sold.

The cam profile was specced based on streetability and vacuum requirements for power brakes. This engine will idle like a stock 440 and light the tires up at will from just about any speed
That sounds like the perfect engine combo for me..  scratchchin

Looks to me like it's time to buy some stock in M/T. You will be spending a bunch of your allowance on rubber.  Wink

Great build...  Ron knows his chit....    2thumbs


I also think this would be a great build for MOST of the mainly street cars on the board. How do you beat those TQ. numbers??  This is a purring LION..........

Sweet!

Perfect for a C-body coming in at TWO TONS!!!(with a passenger) drool5 drool5 drool5
Was gonna go 543 but, this combo looks right on the money.
I assume that was a dish piston set-up as the flat-tops are way up in the 11's to one, with Edelbrocks.

Is the engine still running after 8 long years lol... slap

Well Done.

Don't get caught up in the hp numbers game.  There is so much BS out there.  I would have put this motor in the 480 to 500 hp range.

I think the build is excellent for the intended purpose.  For a 100% street duty car, when the hammer is dropped, 95% of the passengers will think it is 600 hp.

It would be easy to put another 60 hp in this, but look at the simplicity of it as built. OOTB-value-minded-heads, stock valve gear, easy on parts cam. This it a true close the hood and forget about it, change the oil once a year deal.

So, how is that bruiser running, just eight years after the dyno test?

Certainly not and idiot. I think it is funny because I've stepped in the same pile of poop before.
