That peek HP is over the 5250 RPM range. I would like to see what the torque numbers are in the 3800 RPM to 4800 RPM range. As to the price you have to take into consideration that it does include EFI.

Edelbrock does not have a dyno graph uploaded for this engine yet, but the secret appears to be in the combo of the pump friendly 9.9:1 comp, hydraulic roller cam, CNC ported heads and the unique for a SBF XT intake manifold;
They are sacrificing some low end for big #'s, the cam will be 3500 to 7000 so you'll have to have some steep gears. 10* less duration would make it more street friendly.

they must be running the motor to 7000 to get those HP numbers with 10 to 1 CR. That would be great for the track. Sucks for a street car. You would need a close ratio box and fairly low rear gears, 3:73s. The torque seems really high for a 347. I have low 400's in torque. torque is cubic is inches and compression ratio, mathematically doesn't make sense to me.

Everyone had the right idea, it hits 503hp right at (redline)6500 RPM, and the first part of the torque curve is kinda low. Peak torque at 5000RPM. I'll steer away from those cams, but good to see that this setup can breathe well enough.
