    I have a repeat customer at my job that he had a "custom " bb 632 in his el camino!!! I was stunned and with the money that this guy has a believe it. I couldnt help but think of how a vehicle a thousand pounds lighter than my K5 and twice as much motor would feel like. Any of yall run anythning close in one of your blazers? What kind of driveshaft would you even use with that anyway?

    Shawn Spickler used to have a pretty healthy 496 in his K5. It ran like a raped ape. I know there are a few guys on here in the high 400" range & some in the 500" range.

    Marv Springer had a 454 with 400+ HP in his fun buggy. It weighed about 3500lbs I believe. That thing was a ROCKET. I rode with him several times in it. On a dirt road he could floor it and just slap the shifter as fast as he could to shift gears. It would tach out in nothing flat. It was a circus ride. He could have charged money for rides in this thing and people would have been standing in line to go again. :bow:

    preparing to drop a decently modded 547 caddy stroker in my 75 k5, i'll let u know how it runs.

    i have a '69 c-10, w/ a 468 bbc. it dynoed at 475 hp/525 ft lbs of torque. it is an impressive tire roasting machine.

    Got specs? I've got a 500 that I'm thinking about getting a little crazy with when it gets torn down.
