Single High rise Dual plane and a 800 CFM w/mechanical secondaries. I never had an issue with overheating or milkshakes bottom end. I did put a Crane cams Mutha Thumper in one, but it did not like it at all. Used the same cams in both. What I am saying is you can get a lot of Hp out those SBC if you do it correctly and do not cheap out in the build. The added weight of BBF or BBC isnt my deal. And if you want to really go big, you can also Slap on a 6/71 or 8-71 blower, and still squeez it out without scattering the thing in the lake or taking out a second on the house. Just my .02 cents. Dean.
    they do make alot of marine parts for the sbc and bbc. but i am a ford guy at heart, and you can't beat how much you C.I. you can get out of a 460........THERE'S NO REPLACEMENT FOR DISPLACEMENT!
