    lots of power and good MPG, then you can't use a carburated BBC.

    I've got a caillies forged stroker crank coming for my 454. you can sure build it into a 496 with tons of torque but mileage is going to suck hard.

    im planning on doing a multiport, holley or edelbrock system. and as far as mpg goes just trying get as good as it can get. im thinking of running a turbo as well, instead of a supercharger.
