I look at the iconic LT-1 that makes 370 hp. I see this engine combo as less than an LT-1 so where am I wrong?
Does the engine sim give ideal results based on perfect tune?

30 years of head/chamber advancement might bring something to the table..
tho. I do think a 180cc head is a tad small for the 292.. it's been used with much worse...
the 3rd gens loose a ton in exhaust.. be very carefull here.. my best set up was hooker headers(I had big pipe headers on trackI heads) with 2.5" pipes going to under pass side footwell(just like the factory dual converter set up, into a y pipe into a 3-3.5" single pipe over axle and into the best muffler you can afford.. (not a flowfarter) and one tail pipe.. the mufflers with two tail pipes make a mess of the flow.. if you have to have dual tail pipes, hang one.. for the look..

the 292 will bleed off the lower end, and if you haven't worked over the 3 link rear and torque bar. it's mighty help get the car out of the hole.. and may save the rear end from going boom..
