Where are you coming up with 425 + HP :?:
I think you have the 4 and 2 backwards, "245" sounds more like it

Since you got all that high rpm HP I'd put a 7000rpm 8 inch 2 piece aluminum job in there...lol

Serioulsy,
We need way more info than what you gave, only thing we could do is be ballpark close, something around 3500 for street use and alittle more for track use Or you can call TCI, PTC, BTE, T/S and they'll build one exactly to your needs.

Goodluck, CP
