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

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