    this is really a hard question as most of us don't have access to a dyno or the big $ it cost to have it done. no offense but when u get guys guessing horsepower #'s they tend to be a little higher than they actually are.

    Haven't measured but I have enough to pull 33's with 3.08's with a 305. Stock 83 with new ignition every year( plugs wires etc ) and Oil every 3000. New heads at 88,000 when I became second owner. Think 305 was rated at 145 new and 350 was rated at 165 hp new. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Acording to gm I have 250hp and 350 ftlbs at the flywheel. With a couple tricks I probaly have about 255 and 355. And that is enough to spin 35x12.5s trhough 3.08s and Im OK with that.

    I have a freshly rebuilt 305 with headers, performer intake, and dual exhaust. I think I'm probably putting out something like 180 hp? I dunno Thats a guess and I could be way wrong.

    190@5600 at the asphalt. I figure around 265-275 at the crank. Not a whole lot of useable low-end on this motor.

    XE262H cam, ARPed bottom end, headers, no emissions, ported heads, electric fans, blah blah blah. The heads are a severe bottleneck.

    It's enough with the 235s and the locker to cause severe wheelhop for about the first 60' if I mash the throttle from idle at a traffic light. With the 33s it usually just chatters like a vibrating bed for the first 10-20'.

    Not bad for a 305 though.

    I'd probably be happy with another 80hp and another 100ftlbs of torque. Or at least make the ponies come a thousand RPM sooner.


    I sure do miss my tree-fiddy.

    Think this would add horsepower to my truck?

    Before one of the lobes on the cam went flat, which lead to a total rebuild, I'm guessing the 402 bb .030 over was at around 400hp, maybe just under. It had 427 heads, Harland Sharpe full roller rockers, some un-specified Comp Cams cam and lifter set.

    When its done and rebuilt I'm hoping for a bit over 400hp. And alot of big block torque. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif In addition to what I already mentioned, It's getting a Comp Cams Extreme 4x4 cam, Comp Cams lifters, pushrods, valve springs and double roller timing set. It'll be bored out to .040 over, new Keith Black pistons & rings. New fresh machined crank. Gonna have it all balanced too. Heads had been rebuilt within 6 months of it dyin. Holley Truck Avenger 770 carb. Edelbrock Performer intake. Hmm...Thats all I can remember- I have a pretty impressive pile of parts. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Here's a picture of the engine when it ran-

    I thinking maybe 200. Its a 350, RV cam, headers, aluminum intake, and dual exhaust. 200 would be on the high side. Probably more like 180, but thats only when it runs. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
