Tuned setup?

So I finally got my motor swapped out in my 90 GT! It's been about time...but after a weekend of swapping the motor and a week and a half of trying to figure out why it didn't run right after work at my shop..I'm finally able to break her in!

So now I'm just curious what you guys think my engine should be making. It's a whole new stock 302 short block bored .60 over with GT40X heads, Proform roller rockers, Trickflow stage 1 cam, and a typhoon intake. I'm planning on getting a custom dyno tune pretty soon, so what do you guys think it'll do?

*I know trickflow heads would've been way better..but this was just my option at the time as money was a determining factor and I still needed to buy plenty of more parts*

Okay good..I'm kinda looking for the notorious 300whp mark and at least the 12 second mark. I'm also planning on doing 3:55 gears.

Agreed, usually they don't recommend over .030 over on a stock block since there's not much meat between the pistons.

I bought the short block and it came bored .60 over...the short block form latemodelrestoration.com comes in either .30,.40, or .60 over and I didn't have a choice or know which one I'd get until I got it.. I haven't had any problem yet though. Thanks for the warning though!
And thanks WhiteCobra94, it's kinda nice to know what number I'll be around

Oh wow, so you don't know what the bore size is until you get it? That's good to know, I thought you could order the size you wanted.

If that's the case that is REALLY shady. You should not be taking stock blocks that far over. I mean if it works w/e but that is making the walls VERY thin.

Also when places like Fordstrokers are around I'm not sure why the hell anyone buys motors from LMR or places like that. They're great for some stuff but a shortblock... no.

No kidding! I'm really surprised a place with such a good reputation like LMR would bore a stock block that far over and then not even tell you what your getting!

I just don't see how you get a block without knowing the bore.

The LMR blocks are just stock budget replacement blocks

Regardless, whoever they farm the rebuilds out to should know better than to go that far over.
