is this from personal experience or hear say. i personally know of a stock long block lm7 with cam lt's and intake that makes 380 rwhp through a 4500 stall turbo 400. so 400 is a possibility with ported heads. just my .02 cents

hear say lol and it runs 9.8's
WOW 9.8's i gotta see that. [Wink]

FINALLY A UPDATE!!! 11/16/15

I have been gathering parts for the swap. Finally got the engine bay ready for the suspension and engine. Started to install suspension but ran out of light. Only need a drive shaft and this thing will be ready to go! The car should be up and running by the Street Actions toy drive on 12/12. Here is some pics of the progress. thanks to @dfg_Eli on IG for getting the new panels welded in for me!

Got the rest of the suspension and brakes in today and got the car on the ground. I was sent the wrong steering rack bushings so I couldn't put it on. Time to finish putting the engine together so I can drop it in.

Motor is pretty much together. Got the car on the ground with the motor in it for the first time and I'm happy with the way it sits(fender isn't bolted on just put on to see how it looks). Car is going to my boys house tomorrow for him to do all the wiring. Should be up and running within the next 2 weeks.

So since I had to wait 5 hours for AAA to get a flatbed, I decided to go ahead and put the hood, fenders and bumpers on the car. Kinda wish the car wasn't on a hill so I can really see how the car will sit. First time out of the garage and in the sun in 8 months. The harness on the passenger side will be completely removed since there is no use for it any more. The car is now sitting at a friends house so he can do the wiring and I can finish up some of the little stuff that needs to be done.
