No just a combi I came up with using a gm lsx bowtie block. 4.155 bore, 4.100 stroke. The car was going to be a street strip thing with a big inch big block. I made the "mistake" of looking at the pro touring thing and the project took a complete turn. I still wanted some bigger cubes so I went with this combo. ( really thought long and hard about taking the block out to max size cid ( 480 cid) hopefully will be driving by this weekend. I suspect it will be fairly stout after I get the motor broke in and a good tune in the ecu..

Re: First time car in light of day..

How do you like the dominator efi? Was it fairly easy to start and tune yourself? Looking at the Holley HP for my EFI 496 just trying to get some feedback before I purchase, thx

Well I have done no tuning yet as I have no miles on car yet. Its 444 cid 650 plus lift cam, high ram intake. 11.2 compression, trick flow heads. I put a basic tune in and turned the key... Zero issues so far. Nice idle, starts well.. I will put least a few hundred miles before I start playing with. I have zero complaints at this time. In my opinion many issues ( with many products) can be traced back to poor install and unrealistic expectations. Take your time and pay very close attention to detail and I think it will go well for you. Thanks ken
