With stock 10 plus compression pistons, a wild cam and maybe 360 ported heads and some other stuff my goal would be to get as close to 450 hp. People are trying to talk me into bigger cubes like 440, for the torque. Budget is limited and car is for Sunday drives not racing. A built 340 would be any easy swap out from the existing 318. All suggestions most appreciated.
Budget limited and for Sunday drives ????
120 % times cubes =
390 hp with a 318/323
440 hp with a 360/366
You are talking $ 5000,,,,,, either takes some expensive head work and parts.
Consider a bit more conservative. I have seen some really good 318/360 cars....
can you spell Nawwsss ????
