My brother has a 96 Chevy 1500 with a crate engine with the 4x4 700r4. It pushes about 330 hp and (don't quote me on this one) 380 ft lbs. He is fast off the line but once we hit around 45-50mph I get the lead. I told him he should take the engine out of my Camaro that I built. 400+ HP not sure on torque.

There is a reason why 350s are an extremely favorable engine, cheap power.

Also, when manually shifting your auto trans be careful. I'm pretty sure how that I messed up my trans in my first car and my first Ram. The car might have been from mud running a front wheel drive
