There several places that sell, crate motors over 500hp and a few will take parts off like cams where you can get your own. I'll stop by next time I'm at Peterbilt and talk with you about it.
Here's one crate motor up to 525.. Change the cam and get 550 easy drop some meth and add about 25 more so there a lot of options. Just toying with the idea right now...

Very tidy, Dave!

Now you need to produce some engine covers that don't say Corvette on them. A nice stock looking "Solstice LS3" would look great.

Sounds good, let me know when you are heading this way, not sure if you know but we moved since last time you visited. We are now just down the way from Peterbilt off of I-85.

Talk with you soon,
Dave

Ya,, I dropped by the week you guys got the place. Ride by you several times on the way to the motel just on the other side...
What mods have you done to the 2.4 other than what I had to mine to get it up to the 314whp......
By the way.. Marry Christmas everyone. Waving a hand from the Outer Banks of NC......

You still limiting them to 15 pounds of boost .. Mine eased itself up to about 15.5 to 16 after the blower got broke in good but she's still a hoss in first and second.

Yeap, they are typically in that 15psi range. We had one here a couple days ago that was doing just a little bit more then that, and the newer superchargers that are shipping have the abradable coating on the rotors which increases efficiency a little bit also, so that helps too.
