Initial testing will be dyno. The dyno mule will be a stock stroke 351. Combination will be old school basic using one of our sets of Blue thunder heads. The combination planned will be a 650HP naturally aspirated motor. Being a standard stroke combination it will require a number of RPM and this will give us vital information with regards to our main caps, and general block integrity in what would considered a tough street/race car.
