hi,
just wondering, i hav a 355 stroker ready to put in me and my mates senator, not sure of the power output but just wondering what mods besides the one's i list below will help reach his goal of 400-450 hp.
*10:1 comp, custom cam 244/244 duration roughly, forged pistons, hv oil pump, 1.6:1 rollers, heads flowed to 500+, 355 come crank.

is it feasable to hav that hp as a goal with the stock 2-bolt mains, i know the tune will play a big part just after some mod suggestions like bigger t/b etc

cheers in advance

he never mentioned changing the manifold only the t/b, fuel and ignition would be good to do, anything else, they're basically what i hav mentioned to him, thanx.

Could make anywhere from under 350 to 450+ depending on the manifold and how well it's put together, that combo wont make stuff all power on the stock manifold

oh ok, well manifold will be a must...
is the engine with 2 bolt mains capable of handling the power?
any recommendations as far as what manifold and t/b to use for a good street application

the 2 bolt mains will be fine.

the tp dual plane manifolds are a good thing. could look into something like that.

tp high rise for that power out put. Fuel system will need major work as well as ignition. You have to remember that 450 rwhp equates to 550+ at the fly wheel, heads might need some more work or go after market ones like bennetts etc.
