Would like to hear your opinions on this 406 build up. Block 30 over,decked and line bored. Stock crank cut 10/10 rods and mains. Forged pistons and 5.7 rods. All internally balanced. 10.0 to 1 compression. Dart Pro 1 200 aluminum heads (the heads are the choise of the engine builder - he is friends with Richard Maskin and gets very reasonable pricing). CompCams 286H cam (236 duration and 490 lift). Original Z/28 hi-rise with Speed Demon 750 card. MSD dist/6a box. I'm looking for 500 ft/lbs of torque and near 450 H/P. All I need is enough vacuum for a brake booster. Am I close? If not what would you change? Thanks in advance for all you comments and/or opinions.
That should produce excellent power. A bit more lift would be better (I'm running .550" lift), but should make great power regardless since those heads flow pretty well. Add on some 1.6 rocker if you can.
