It is a 350 bored over .030 and has 882 heads with 282 crane cam. I know get rid of that cam...What should i go to? I have a turbo 350 trans with a 3.73 gears and the gears are non-negotable. 600 cfm edelbrock carb dual flowmasters (not sure what series) I have the cheapo spark plugs on it right now but only until i get it running. It has never been cranked since it was rebuilt. I just put oil in it for the first time ever. Would anyone care to venture a guess as to what i might get mileage wise right now no mods?
Don't know how tall your tires are but I'll guess with stock jets in the carb you'll get about 11-12mpg. With some yuning work on that carb you might get 13-14. I'm assuming it's 2 wheel drive. If you won't part with your 3.73 gears or swap to a 700R4 you might want to get a set of tractor tires if you were hoping to hit 16mpg.
