See if you can request the Morosso wires as they are better quality. Otherwise that's a great setup although I question those numbers running a Performer RPM intake. Maybe with a Victor Jr on that motor, but otherwise I just don't believe them with the Performer RPM. Not enough airflow to support that much HP with that setup.

Regardless of the numbers it makes (not that important really) it will be very satisfying and very fast.

That is essentially the same engine I have and it is a fire breather. Just remember it loves to break loose the rear wheels. But it sure moves and sounds REALLY good.

I always say this (and it makes my wife mad) More head !! Sorry couldn't resist and agreed on the intake and Moroso wires.pm sent. Anyone else on the heads. I was told and I believe that you really need a 200cc intake port on the head.it worked on the blown 306 525rwhp and on the 408 similar power. Bob
