After looking at your posted photo I just happened to notice that you were not using the GMPP 620 horse pump gas Gen VI block BBC, but a more uncommon Brodix 4.500 inch bore aluminum block with a 4.375 inch stroke crank (I used a Dart block punched out to 4.600 inch bore with the same 4.375 inch crank to build my 582).

So out of curiosity just how much power does your lighter than a small block big block make?

Hi Big Dave

Good eye! It's a 10.2 deck aluminum block, 3 extras 351 heads. Here are the numbers.
