Nice and neat, how you planning on getting this 400rwkw NA you're aiming for? did you mean HP or are you planning a 408 stroker or something wild? 400rwkw NA is monster territory. Don't think I know of anyone doing it in a LS1

Something wild I reckon, I got a few mates around the 400kw with chargers just thought it would be different to try n get there without one. Having a look at the kits out these days they take up a lot of room. Plus the sound would be wicked. Guna have a chat to me mate soon n see what he reckons can be done to get too or close to that figure

I'd love to see 400rwkw before going FI. Good luck on any future plans.

If you don't want FI (and still alot of internal work), you have two options,
A transplant, the 346 just wont do it.
Find your nearest Disney Dyno and fudge it.
