    Based on a 427 buildup I loosely followed, probably around 450 hp conservatively and around 500 ft lbs torque off of idle.

    Got a dyno? I'm just estimating, but I think its close! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    How are the radial TSLs? Quiet?

    Looks like someone needs to do some fender cutting. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    NICE TRUCK, It's good to see ya put the money in a BB & not a SB. I dump close to 5 grand into my 383 & was happy until I got my stock '88 TRK with a TBI 454. I will never rebuild SB AGAIN..... /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Thanks for the compliments everyone! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif 84 Chevy K10, I think the radial Super Swampers are pretty quiet, to me anyway. I used to have 35" BFG Mud T/A's when I was 1/2 ton, and they were definitely louder than these new tires.
