    And when you stop to consider that a 485 hp. 392 crate engine can be bought for only $9,054, with only 55 less hp. The extra $10K could be used for a lot of performance mods, like a supercharger.

    yeah, the later is more a possibility, and I still wouldn't do a supercharger. but would probably have to beef up the trans and axles. to handle the extra HP. 2009 stock RT stuff I think wouldn't survive the upgrades I think.

    O.K. You lost me:
    1. Aluminum Single Plane High Rise Intake Manifold with Holley 870 cfm 4-bbl. Carburetor (1)
    2. 80 mm manual throttle body (2)

    That kind of like Megan Fox on the 1st Transformers?

    The extra $ for those forged internals would support lots more boost if one's so inclined. I can only safely do 6 lbs on my 5.7 with the Magnuson!
