With a good tune there shouldn't be issues. Stock block will max out around 450ish hp, give or take. But I've seen some guys run close to 500 and no problems. That tune will make or break a car close to the limit.

When you say the stock block will max out at 450, are you talking rwhp or at the flywheel?

The stock block isn't maxed out at 450 that's where the stock internals are maxed out at I'm going to be at 550 with a stock block

Ok understood, but are we talking engine horsepower, or horsepower to the wheels?

Yeah when I said stock block, I was referring to the stock short block. And like I said its not a black an white area, some run alittle more, and some run a little less without problems. And just like said before its the internals that hold it at that level.

Just to clear things up.. It's not cut and dry. But general rule of thumb is over 400rwtq/hp you're on borrowed time with stock internals. And the stock iron block usually hits it's tipping point around 600rwhp/tq.

Like stated before these are just general rules of thumb and if building to be anywhere over or close to those power levels I would suggest taking your time and doing the build correctly to save headaches down the road. Just my two cents though.

Block is good for over 1k easy. These are not the pushrod blocks.

And pistons, and might as well do crank while you are in there.

Cast crank is fine for a LOT of power if you aren't going to spin over 7k. Rods and pistons require replaced with stronger stuff, block is good. Again, if you are supercharging its a good idea to keep it at the 400-425 to the wheels level and enjoy that till you build a stronger motor for the car. 400whp in a 3300lb Mustang with suspension/sticky tires and gears will blow the doors off most stuff you'll come accross.
