Very unlikely you will get to that with the stock intake. Ported msd would help out a lot

"Someone" Clueless or with an agenda. 10 RWHP with stock Heads and cam,
20+ with Ported Heads & Medium Cam, with Headers,
235*+ Intake or larger Cam & well Ported MSD 35+.

550 to 560 seems more reasonable.

That is a proven cam to make big power. However, you need all of the supporting mods to get there (600 RWHP range).

Are you sure you want a big donkey dick cam that drives like **** just to hit a certain number? -Especially since you thought Undy meant crank hp when he said 550-560...you honestly might want to reconsider to a BTR 3 at least.

Should be In the 610 to 620 range with stock intake at the wheels. They seem to use a big cam to make big numbers, may end up driving kinda shitty in town. Higher numbers equals less drivability.

BTR 4 should even be a consideration without all supporting mods. I assume you're heads will be ported by saying they're being "done"...but that could just mean a valve job as well I suppose. You have good LT's, but ported heads and a FAST/MSD intake are also needed or you're choking the motor.
