For those of you that remember my post last year, I had a bearing issue with my new 496 with basically no time on the motor other than the initial dyno time. Well I got it back last night and watched some pulls on the dyno and its now making 700 HP @6300 and 653 TQ @ 4700! It has over 600 TQ from 3100 to 6000 rpm. This is all on pump gas to boot! Should be fun on the street and good for some low 10s in the ol 69 Nova. Go to timzeppengines.com to see the dyno video via youtube Try this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyhDxWSxoz0

Good for you. My 496 made 692 HP on the dyno. I think you may hit the 9's with your's. Mine just ran a 6.25 in the 1/8 which equals about a 9.75 in the quarter.

Not bad. I think whne my car gets done I am going to pull my 427 out over winter and build a 496 with some juice if I can find a buyer for my motor. The heads and the block are matching numbers for a 69 vette 427 435hp and I do have the crank as well so hopefully I can find a buyer for those and the rest of the parts I would be selling. They still have all the original castings and stampings on them as well.
