    not exactly your combo but i'm running a KB wedge 454 cui blown and alcohol injected,roughly 1400 hp with conservative cam and blower.
    block is a KB/MOPAR water block that is run dry,with alum water heads that are filled with block filler.
    bore is 4.52 and stroke 3.54
    FYI,the wedge block is a hemi block with relocated upper head studs.
    hope this helps a little.

    thanks for your reply. can you drive back to the pits after a run or do you tow back.

    I think you'll find that one of the biggest reasons for towing is to save your oil. A blower engine runs pretty fat at idle and if you drive it around much you're going to have as much fuel in the oil pan as oil.
