How much horsepower do you think an sc block with all forged internals with a stud girdle can handle??

I would think 500+ should not be a problem. Dave Dalke's (actually his wife's ;) ) XR7 is over 400 horse with a stock bottom end. The way I understand from reading on here, an SC block with all high quality forged internals and stud girdle, along with MLS head gaskets and ARP head studs should be able to handle just about anything you throw at it.

An SC bottom end with good parts has held approx. 600rwhp. I think it could handle upwards to 750 but that is pure guess.
