Making some progress

Got the engine back together and dyno'd. Since I did not build the bottom end, didn't touch the bearings, pistons or rings, I handcuffed him at 5300 rpm, wouldn't let him go any higher, he wanted to, the engine wanted to, but I didn't so we didn't. It made 460hp @ 5300 and was still climbing when I cut him off. put down 510 ftlbs torque. Don't know how much more HP it would have made and I don't care. This was all about getting everything timed, tuned and adjusted so that there would be no issues when in the car.
It's only an 8 to 1 comp ratio completely stock bottom end.. Next year will be the year I build a bigger, better engine with more comp and aluminum heads. I just really needed to put a bandaid on the bleeding for now and settle for something I could get done and get the car back together. I am happy with the results and can now move forward with reassembly of the car

Dressed up real nice. Maybe the headers should have gone in while the engine was lifted?
