    Does anyone know stock horspower/torque stats for this year? or a site that has this info?

    Also, has anyone redone thier stock tbi 350? what did you do? I am having difficulty finding a cost effective way of boosting hp as close to the 300 mark as i can get without effecting emissions and egr setup. I would buy the goodwrench crate motor which is like $1400 but the stock intake doesn't fit. any suggestions would be appreciated.

    thanks

    thanks. i found it also. looked into used but, i dont want to have to do this again in a year. used you jus tdont know wha tyour getting. Right now it' a toss up between: 1.rebuilding my heads and buying a 383 shorblock. I found one for $1000. with rebuilding my heads it should cost me around $1300 2. buy the rebuild that is the direct 210 horse replacement for $1400. 3. buuy the 270 horse version of my motor for $2200. 4. buy a 300 horse roller longblock for $2000.

    can't decide yet until i hear back on questions i asked of the 383 shortblock guys.
