Has anyone ever seen a setup involving the following:
Y8 head delta 272-2
supertech springs/retainers
z6/y7/y8 sleeved block with wiseco 10:1 flat top pistons/eagle rods and boost on e85.
How would one go about finding the power this setup could make? Obviously other than when it blows..

You can guess, but good for 500 whp or more before the block splits apart.

375 whp with a crappy sized turbo on stock sleeves, Y5 block, stock cam.

Not an imaginary build thread. Notify me if there was a similar build out there is all, because I personally haven't been able to find one. Thanks for your help any way.

Bone pretty much answered the question any how as of when the block would split.

I am still under the impression that the y8 block will not split as easy as the z6 block. The coolant drain is in a better, less stressful place, but also the bosses in the y8 are shorter than the z6, making them even farther from the drain plug. Eh?

What you say does make sense. Though I wish this thread wasn't moved to the noob section. Maybe we can still get a few decent conclusions though.

500 is just a number I would like to see, not out for a 1/4 et. 10s would be nice though :)

Right now my y7 block is being assembled with an a6 crank with vitara/eagle setup. Hoping to make 350 with it and the head as detailed in OP.

So would it be more beneficial to sleeve a y7/y8 block than a z6 block? Hmm

Y8 I think. I have both, the z6 head already has the cam/springs/retainers in it. Not sure which to go with. Was thinking y8 for the quench.
