Engine puts out @ 450 HP at 5,600 rpm with an Alpha 1 and Hydromotive Q-IV 22 labbed & runs an indicated 76 MPH. Engine will be listed soon as the new 434 is almost finished. Installing a new Bravo 1 and CMI headers with the new engine in addition to a full dry sump system. You will note the Oberg oil filter and Canton oil thermostat. It also has a Barnes internal dry sump system. Uses a complete MSD dual ignition system with remote timing. Flip a switch and go to the secondary system including a second rev-limiter, which you can have a higher limit module in. Have an MSD knock sensor and dual Edelbrock air/fuel ratio monitors. Have a oil temp sending unit wired to a dash switch to switch between water temp and oil temp using the same guage. Didn't want to change the original dash. Hope you appreciate 5 years of upgrades.

It depends on if someone wants it complete - exhaust, closed cooling, etc., or the basic engine. I was looking for $5,500 for the basic engine. It only has @ 30 hours on it.

I hope you're not sorry you didn't convert to a Bravo coupler and cover before you stuffed it back in!
How do I know this?:confused: :confused:

That is all Alpha, small hole bell housing and the toad stool coupler.
