Dunno, guess it depends on your goals and what the rest of the car can handle.

A T72 depending on how it is spec'd can be good for 800fwhp. That stock block would not last much in that power range. Unless you plan to step up the engine I think it was a poor choice to change power adders you already are at the edges as is. There are people who win russian ruellete(sp?) all the time too but I still tend not to put a loaded gun to my head.

This is true. Buy it if you plan to step up and really use it to it's potential. Otherwise, it will be way out of it's efficiency range ( more than likely) if you have the boost down to save the block.

I think we all know that once you get past 400hp on a stock block time is not on your side, but that being said there are people in az running past 600 for years and still going. I think if we have been at it any time at all we have broke something and my plans after this motor is Dart block. Why you say switching power adders was a poor choice you don't want me a part of the Turbo or what

I wasn't aware you have to start at the top of boost, besides this fits my plans just fine was going dart anyways.

You never said anything about stepping up to another block prior to that. Also you can run a turbo too low just as you can too high, now I doubt that 72 would be running too low to be at a friendly power level to a stock block. Is it even a Q-trim? Seems most of them floating around are the cheaper P-trims.

Ya my plan is to run her around 600hp till the block go’s in the mean time I am looking in to parts for the dart block, I know it will not last but there are guys that are running 600+ on a stock block for a long time. when you know you are playing Russian rulet it is different.

I am going to do pictures, I see you are too. I think I will get eveything coated and make it look nice first, then start on the install. Did your kit look that nice when you got it or have you do work to it.
