    dont get me wrong here....i just think that cam, carb, and your compression limit you on the flow those heads and intake can flow....350,360, even 400 hp is nothing to sneeze at....it is not going to run 9's sorry....but if you go to a larger hyd cam, maybe even a solid or hyd roller cam where the heads dcan breath and top it off with a 700 dbl pumper and bump the compression to 9.5 or even 10:1 might even 500+ out of it where it will run in the 10's....so it is up to you how fast you want to go....we are here to help if neccessary.....
