    I wonder how much torque the standard 350 sb has got? I cannot figure out from my papers how much torque my '79 Blazer with its 350 sb has stock.

    Also since I added a 500er Edelbrock carb, performer air intake manifold, performer camshaft, flowtech headers and 2 1/4" dual exhaust system I feel the engine pulls much stronger, but in summary what did I gain? More horespower or more torque?

    Anyone can tell?

    Stock 1979 Truck 350= 175 HP. 275 Ft Lbs Torque.

    As far as what your modifications did. You gained both horsepower and torque. You probabally gained 20-30 HP and 30-40+ Ftlbs torque depending on the cam/manifold combo
