Hey Pugsy.What up??.

I knew what he meant too.

We had a guy with a 350 Vortec Goodwrench crate in a 4,000 Astro van(yepper that's there wt stock) use that "383" cam with a mod'ed TBI and chip burn.Now not everything has to be over 500 in a lift to be a decent cruiser.Surprising mid curve and very good,no great,street manners.For some that would be a worth while venture.Because of the way the thing pulled in the mid section on a 4,000 van,I would think it is all of 300hp.
