It is a 489 that made 575HP and 571 ft/lbs. It was running a little lean on the dyno, so the numbers should improve with some tuning. It is going into my 65 Buick Skylark. <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/YA2H_fTCDTw"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object>

Schweet..........that engine will probably make that HP for a decade with minimal maintenance. Best to make sure you don't get lucky the first trip to the strip and go fast enough to be required to have a cage for that speed since that car is pretty light.

I am pretty much planning on making one blast down the strip and getting thrown off the track :). The engine was built really well with excellent parts, so it should last for a while. If anyone is looking for a solid, strong engine check T&L out (tandlengines.com). It took forever to get the engine but they really put time into them. With the parts on this engine and the labor, I don't know how they make any money.
