    My engine is from a 79 and with all smog crap removed AND a 4 barrel carb it still only made 140 hp! So I did a cam swap! The cam is one of the first things you should probably do and then the headers. That should give you a good ooomph in the right direction. I didn't know what my hp was after I swapped the cam though because I didn't get to dyno it, but it was definetly improvement!

    I put on my hip waders and grabbed the manure fork myself.

    From where do these people come?

    *interesting facts*

    820 rwhp calculates to roughly 1025 hp at the flywheel. And 900 ft/lbs?? That much power would grab that little vicki rear and twist it into an ugly metal knot.

    351W with a 302 crank? Talk about milling about 1/2" from the caps and then line-boring the main journals "just a bit".. heh.

    A GM 12 bolt wont hold up to 1000hp.
