396SS Power Kit-Wanting 350-400WHP

Hey fellas!

Picked up a 1966 Chevelle SS with the 396/360 motor.


Seems to be completely stock.

Wanting around 400 HP, going to keep my power steering etc. So nothing extreme.


Does anyone know about the Edelbrock 2095 package?



Can anyone suggest what I may need to achive the 350-400WHP mark?



Thanks and I apreciate any comment/tips/suggestions!

Not sure what you mean "WHP".

That kit should make 450hp (360whp) on a 396.

but will need 3.73 gears and a 3000 stall converter if you are using an automatic trans.

Would I need any other supporting modifications? Is there a cheaper way to make that much horsepower?

what gear and trans/stall are you using now?

yes, no2 would be an easy and cheap hp fix. A 150hp shot would be ok for a stock bbc.

Going to order the isky cam setup (.544/.544,218/218,270 duration.)

... and send my factory 66 396 heads to go get worked at a local shop.


Any suggestions on header's, intake manifolds, and a new carberauter????

3310 750 holley.

regular rpm intake (not air gap)

any long tube 1-3/4" header will work. Look for a header with a 3/8" thick mounting flange.

With a 4 speed, that cam should work well with a wide range of rear end gear ratios. 3.08 to 3.73.

How aggresive will that cam be?


Also anyone found a cheaper set of headers that fits a BB 66-67 Chevelle without a hammer etc??

not very aggressive. but should lope a little on a 396.

what is the lobe separation angle of the cam? (LSA)

I would also use and oil additive with that cam. zddplus.com
