What would your 2000-2500hp build consist of and why?
I am thinking 525-531". Big M with a 4.600 bore & a billet, 8 counterweight 4.125 stroke. 10-1 comp, Oliver or Crower steel rod.
Brodix 395 Head Hunters and a cam spec'd by Steve Morris with bushed lifters,, T&D rockers & Smith Bros pushrods.
Holley or FT dual rail/injector efi and two tunes (pump & alcohol) so it can run RMRW or Dragweek easily by just pulling the belt for the drive. (Yes, side slinger)

Let's hear your combos.

I like the 4.125 stroke, as it gives the piston a decent pin height for strength and stability in the bore.
I'd prefer the 4.5 over 4.6 bore for more room for gasket retention, unless the Head Hunter really calls for it.
Regardless of the engine size selected, it will always want to RPM to collect the boost and the slightly smaller engine will be able to do that longer, and harder, given the same components.
