Although Latimer was confident that his 327 creation would reach the 500 mark, he was a bit surprised to pass it by so much, and admits that he would have made some different component choices if he'd known. To that end, he's got a set of lightweight Wiseco pistons and rings on order, along with 6.250-inch rods to increase the pistons' dwell time at TDC and further enhance that rod/bore and stroke combo. Our only question is, "When can we come check it out?"
