Question Chevy 350

I am in the process of figuring out what parts I am going to use on my chevy 350. I am planing to drive the car so I want good dependability in all kinds of driving conditions. I also want resonable fuel economy. I have a Wieland dual plane 888 intake and a rebuilt Rochester Quadrajet. Will this be a practical setup? Will I need to change the cam? What kind of HP can I expect out of my motor?

What size carb is the Quadrajet that you're using?
I'm assuming that you are still using the stock cam also. I think that the stock cam would work fine as long as you're not looking for big performance.
I would stick with the dual plane intake as they are better on gas mileage than single plane.
Depending on the size of your carb, I think this is a overall good combo for a street car. In my mind, any good V8 should be able to beat up on those darn imports that are running around!

Mike what is the engine out of. You are putting it in a heavy car so that makes a big differance what cam you use. The intake and carb is a good cambo for MPG and HP.But do you know what year and make it came out of. There is a web site that will tell you what engine it is. ROY

That sounds prety good to me considering how much horsepower the origonal 265 small block and 2 bbl carb most likely had. And it is definately more than my last cruzer. A buick wagon making a conservative 165 HP
