    Wow that is a major goal.....500HP!!

    It can be made.....but of all the SVOs and 2.3 cars 400 is about where people hit that plateau, then to go beyond takes alot more dedication and time. Good luck! your list is going in the right direction
    dont forget other things to make that goal hit the ground.....I would think a 5.0 flywheel/clutch setup would help (the svo clutch is a bit small and others have had issue above 400 with this
