    Derek, what did you do exactly in your build?

    Just rods and cams ? Porting? Are you changing blowers?

    I am just curious when you have a chance to answer.

    I'm staying with the 3.6 Kenne Bell

    The motor was rebuilt with new pistons, rods, crank, L&M race cams, billet oil pump gear, and slawko cylinder head porting

    9.5-1 compression

    Was cylinder sleeving a consideration?

    Yes
    It was a big consideration, but other non-sleeved 5.8's are making 1150-1250 whp with no failures

    Evolution's blue GT500 for example

    I wanted to sleeve it but I didn't want to wait for the custom sleeve that I wanted.

    This is a street build, it has other purposes besides racing
    Which is why the compression is 9.5 and it still uses a 3.6 kenne bell

    The goal is 200 in the standing mile and still capable of street driving

    This car was an 875 whp grocery getter with a 6-point cage
    And nobody wanted to try it on the way
