    :rlaugh: Well....., they did it with AFR 185 heads and 347 so its in a ballpark im good with. They used a much bigger cam than i will so i think it will please my under 6000 rpm street needs. I can always still add boost later @84Ttop with the dart block :nice:

    You do realize that if you h/c/i it like a 302 it's going to run like a 302. Just saying

    Well being its a DD and that xe292 cam they used with AFR 185 heads with the gt40 intake made i think 450/450, but basically i'm looking at the intake supporting those n/a numbers with a larger cam, if it supported the hp numbers with the larger cam, it will hold my dd needs with any cam smaller than that. I feel basically the intake will hold my chosen rpm band.Giving up the upper 6000rpms for the torque curve i want on the street.

    For the $400 or less an intake costs, I would upgrade and sell the Cobra intake to recoup some of the cost. It may do the job, but why not put a better match on?

    i agree run the ported cobra intake your 363 will be a torque monster. Why move the power up the rpm band if you dont race it. IMO i would put as much area under the curve as possible. That will make a really fun street car.

    That is the $64,000 question!!!

    So custom grind is on the table obviously cause it's a torque build but I'm also considering the xe270-12, tfs 1. Here is goody_seven's dyno from another site with a 331 AFR205 with 3.55's using the xe270-12 with 1.6 rockers, so only .512 lift and not .544 with 1.7's with that cam. Also had high rpm intake but the torque powerband is pretty appealing. This is rwhp_rwtrq also.

    Engine talk aside what transmission are you planning to hold all this together with? You are shooting for an engine that will make 400+ to the wheels. How are you going to get that to the ground? Don't dare say t5.

    and what a curve it is! makes me wonder if i should rip out my e303 for a better option while its still on the stand..... just keep in mind a wild 302 cam will be mild in your 363.

    Auto c4 would be the cheapest bet. Tko 600 is a great manual tranny but it still run 3k to install. Not much less than a 6 speed conversion.
