Almost every other component is custom and has been upgraded!

It makes a bunch more HP and TQ than a ZO6 Crate motor and like Tom mentioned we can up the power level in many ways without issue!
Ok. It's just that I seem to be confused. I'm not doubting the upgrades/customizing. But, doesn't a stock LS7 make about 420-450rwhp? I know it is about 505-515 at the crank. I'm assuming you are using forged internals?
I know Nickey Camaro and Yenko take their cars very seriously and are true to their word. Thank you for clearing this up.
