Re: Horsepower estimate



"seat of the pant" feeling.  Got the bugs worked out of ole Brutus.  Ear timing turned out to actually be 20 degree total advance, now set at 32 degree-- # 6 spark plug not fireing, now fixed-- now able to adjust the Holley carb.  On paper , he shouldn't be very high performance, but HOLY COW !  talk about seat of the pants feeling !  Maybe it has been to long since handleing a little power , but now I am really curious , just what the numbers are??...................................MO

My 340 Dart has modest HP & Torque "on paper" but really honks when you
hammer it and it is a blast to drive.  You also have room to grow your power
with your nice combination of parts should you desire to pass everything but
a gas station.
