Re: 555 What do you think?
It seems the OP suffers from the same problem many of us have, that is, if it is indeed a problem.
In today's world of hot rodding, it is easy to build a perfectly reliable, and very drivable, 700 hp big block. The reason is we can now build 500+ cubic inch engines by exerting no more effort than it takes for one to open his wallet.
The advent of aftermarket blocks, complete rotating assemblies, a myriad of cylinder head choices, and Hyd Roller Cams has made it so easy as compared to what we had to work with 40 years ago.
The problem is the definition of what is quick, and what is fast has not kept up. In my younger years, if you had a street car that had a horsepower to rate ratio that would theoretically get it into the 12's, that was fast. Now, it's mundane.
Heck, you can buy a off the showroom Vette Cameron, or Mustang that will easily do that.
I can not run my Malibu at the track because it does not have a roll bar or a drive shaft loop. The X pipe exhaust is plenty heavy, and would contain the driveshaft, but that doesn't count.
My top machinist has a 2017 Z06 that has the 1000 HP LMR package. He ran it one night, they told him no more.
So, I have fun on the street.
To the OP. Build you a nice street engine and have fun. It looks like what you have now will be plenty of that.
