Dss level 10 with 76mm

I currently have a level 10 dss short block with trick flow heads. I have a f cam with a victor 5.0 manifold and a precision 76mm turbo. I currently have a powerglide in the car and am using a FAST engine management to tune the car. My question is what do u guys think my limit on hp is? I know its really just a stock block with a girdle and good arp stuff. Just curious what #s u guys think is safe for my setup. In the near future I will b putting together a 393 stroker motor.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I was thinking 450 on the safe side. I don't really need a huge # I'm not trying to set the world on fire. It's just until I put the bigger motor in. Thanks man

I also have a Precision 76mm and used a stock bottom end. 12lbs produced about 565fwhp and trapped 130-133mph. I never spun the engine over 6k and that shortblock lasted for 60 or so passes plus a couple thousand street miles. It must have been right at the edge because after the racing season was over I turned it up to 15lbs and it broke a rod the 1st time I went though the gears.

Do the level 10 engines use aftermarket rods? If so you might be "ok" for a while making power somewhere in the 500fwhp range.

a good tune and good gas are the keys. let you tuner decide what feels safe, they have the knowledge to know where to stop. "at least a good one"
