So after a long time away from modified car scene busy with work, nappies and life it’s time to dust of the old XE project car.
Plan has changed a bit and looking at a 393 stroker from Pavtek (approx 500hp, 500ft lb) a TKO 5 speed and a 3:45 Borg Warner.

Haven’t had anything bigger than a very mild 351 I built myself so my question is what can I expect in term of driveabilty from one of these?
It’s mostly a cruiser with maybe the occasional run down the strip with mates. I know this motors more about head technology and the extra cubes then a big cam and oversized 4v heads. Keen for a bit of grunt and street cred but don’t want something that’s a handful to cruise around town either. How will this feel in the XE with a manual?
