Default Dynoed my engine today

OK so it was just a Virtual dyno but it dynoed at over 600HP Can this be even close? How accurite is a virtual dyno? The site says +/- 5%??

Here is what i got you tell me.

SBC 400 bored 40 over

Forged Crank/Pistons flat top

Brodix Track 1 mild port/complete port

Comp Cams:
Hydrolic Roller RPM RANGE 3000 TO 6500
PART # 12-460-8
CAM GRIND # 304HR
DURATION 304/304
DURATION @ 0.50 IS 244/244
VALVE LIFT WITH 1.5 ROCKERS IS .600/.600
LOBE SEPERATION ANGLE IS 110 DEGREES

Comp Cams Magnum Roller rockers

Brodix Dual Plane intake

Holley 4150 Pro Series 750

MSD Ignition:
6AL
Pro Billet Dist.
Blaster 2 coil

Edelbrock Gear drive

Holley Blue series fuel pump.


Well could it be close to 600HP??

I am in the middle of putting it in the car so i will know for sure in a week or 2 when i put it on the real dyno, but i am wondering.

I would say a virtual dyno is off by more like 10-15%.

At least that is what I have seen on other computer dyno software and been told.

as Carl said 10-15% off...but even then you still looking at 540hp..

remember what i told you about it probably capable of making 600 hp ..and no PROBLEMS MAKING 500 HP..

i did not pull these numbers out of the AIR or on a DESK top Dyno...this is real life expereience of running these 406ci motor over the past 10 years and testing them on real MOTOR DYNO'S..

as a said before my wife has a very,VERY mild 406ci I built her 3 yrs ago,out of the box steel Dart iron eagle heads, very small ( 520) flat tappet solid lift cam..off the shelf holley 750 carb....this motor dynoed 460hp at 6500 rpm..

you got a lot more 406ci then she has got trust me....

i had a very similer 406 in a 63 Bug..steel world heads ( bowl blended) and a slightly bigger cam with a 1000 silver claw carb aluminum rod motor..and it dynoed right at 620 hp...


So DO NOT be surprised at these numbers your stumbling on...

also sounds like your gonna put it on a chassis dyno..remember it will lose anywhere from 15% to 25/30% hp thru the chassis from the fly wheel


good luck.
