Default 750 hp on the street

has to run on pump gas and have a hyd roller. what would your set up be? i'm new to this board and after alot of google bbc searches this forum kept showing up. i respect your guys knowledge here after reading lots of threads. i have a 69 nova that weighs 3600 with driver a tko 600 and 4:10s in the 12 bolt. stock rear suspension. i want a kick a** street car. i currently have a world products 509 merlin [ i think its the only crate motor they have built that has been trouble free] that is supposed to make 575 hp @5800 and 595 tq @3500.i don't want to go to a solid roller because the car is currently undergoing a custom resto. and oil running all over the motor and subframe while adjusting the valve lash isn't happening. i don't plan on racing the car since there is no dragstrip close.

You do know the lash is adjusted without the motor running and with shaft rockers you'll hardly ever have to adjust them.I do not get oil spray on my car.

I don't think you need 750 for a kick ass street car Dave. You won't be able to hook that anyway unless you want to do long smokey burouts, especially with a stick car...it would work for that...

750 would be a big stretch for a HR, not saying it couldn't done but a big stretch (and probably expensive). Any reason you chose that number? If you're at 575 now even going to 650/675 would be night and day and that's doable cost effectively....JMO...

Save your money IMO. I actually don't think you would be able to tell the difference between 575 and 675 on the street. The tires are going to INSTANTLY light up with either combo and I doubt spinning the tires with 675 HP is any quicker than spinning them with 575. Maybe they stop breaking loose at 95 instead of 85 from a roll.

469" motor was maybe 550hp, new 540" motor is 650-680 hp. You can tell the difference. A step up to 750 hp would entail a much more radical motor. But what's really noticeable with the new 540" is the midrange punch and overall throttle response. Right there all the time from idle To 6000.

wether its a flat tappet solid or a roller..you can certainly set the lash cold.
I don't set the lash on anything while its running anymore....
I am sure a s/r would wake the 509 right up and take it to the next level

Procharger....Making more HP than guys can put through street tires since they started making 'em. I dont see you getting there any easier unless you slap a plate on it and spray it to 750hp. Any other way is going to cost you some substantial money and make the car more rowdy to drive than most would like with a stick and 4.10s. Plus you can step away from the tall gears and put some 3.55's in there to make it a little more livable to drive on the highway. Just my thoughts.

Basic 540/555 will do 750+ easily with a good Hyd roller and some CNC AFR 335's or Dart 335's or better. You can do it with a solid flat tappet also. Peak HP RPM will come in around 6300-6500 or so depending on cam. They really like the bigger intakes and carbs. That will get you over 800.

Solid roller is worth another 25-30 HP.

Mainly depends on RPM you want to be in.

Turbo and shoot for more like 750 at the tires. 5-6psi should do it

thnx for the replies ,750 at the tires would be awesome. what combos would you go with to get there [750 @ the flywheel]. afrs are in the cards so is a solid roller. how about a rotating assembly, cam , intake ,carb and anything i'm missing. seriously i don't care i want rubber in all 5 gears. when that happens then i'll try to hook it up
