Building up the Mach 1 motor

It finally happened, I spun a bearing! So... I'm about to have the thing rebuilt with the good stuff. Manley rods and Diamond pistons, and a good crank if mine turns out to be damaged. This is as long as cylinder walls aren't messed up. Otherwise, I'm just getting a Livernois 4v shortblock.

I'll be maxing out the P1SC, hoping for 600 rwhp. My shop seems to think my TR3650 will hold up to it for a reasonable amount of time as long as I'm not doing any powershifting. Thoughts on that?

Anyway I'm excited... maybe next year I'll get a D1 upgrade and get some more boost.

You can break a stock 3650 with 300hp. Going easy might help but it's a time bomb waiting to go off.
