I just purchased a fresh motor(not in yet). It has stock heads with a 3angle cut on the valves. Conley's spec 1 cam. I have been running a ta49 w/ 43.5lbs. 2500 stall(in the past). I also just purchased 57lb Siemens from Racetronix. I'm going to get a converter & bigger turbo. I like the 49 on the street w/ alky. With my heads not being ported,(for now) what would make a killer stall & turbo for my combo? I also have a te44 turbo w/ 36lbs. I would like to try a big shaft turbo. Keeping in mind the short block does not have forged pistons, main caps, or girdle, is there a hp sweet spot for this block? I've heard not to exceed 550 hp. I would be extremely happy with 500 hp. Thanks, Dave
What stall & turbo without porting the heads?????

The only thing I would recommend is either do a real good port job on your heads or get Champion irons. If not you will need to run an extra 5lbs (EST) of boost to make up for the poor air flow. This is with any big Turbo/Stall combo
