Year-One Crate engines

Well some of you know I bought a Year One 355 crate engine. I would like to do a little review on them since they are very well priced ($2989).
Well to start off this engine is a Vortec Iron headed small block on a 1 piece seal block. The engine contains a roller camshaft and a airgap style intake and is actually dynoed for you.

I will post pics once it starts to warm up but for starters...

Looking over the dyno sheet. This enigne produced 425hp @5800 , 440.9 ftlb torque @3900.
Pretty strong street motor...

I gotta stop reading these Crate threads or pretty soon I'll be yanking my engine for one of these puppies. That's a sick amount of powerband for the $$$

I bought the Summit House brand ceramic 1 5/8" headers, I have a Holley 650Dp, and I have a 4 speed manual.

Due to work and piss poor weather I work in it in 5 min increments. Not much left to go. My goal is Saturday!

I dont think I will ever dyno on a machine, but I will let you know how the seat of my pants feel.
