I'd be interested in other responses on what peformance they have been able to get from their engines in purely N/A form from these builders.

I have an N/A 426 BES engine that put out somewhere between 470rwhp/470 rwtq (on a stingy Mustang dyno ) to 540rwhp/520 rwtq (HHP's Dynojet). This is with a fairly mild cam and HHP's stage 2 heads. I suspect there is more top end power to be had on this engine but have not pushed it because I want something that is reasonably friendly to drive on a daily basis.

For me drag racing is not the end goal but rather I want a beastly fast street car that can burn up the competition on a road race. So the features that I care about are strong mid-rpm torque, outstanding top end power and engine longevity. I feel pretty comfortable with my choice of BES thus far.
