Your little carb and dinky block hugger headers belong on a 250 to 300hp engine.

Why are you asking? It will make 50+ HP and a ton of torque LESS than it could make.

Youa re fabricating the whole car/ chassis and cannot weld up a decent exhaust system for it?

Non of the head porting or the roller cams power will be reaized with a choked induction and exhaust system. The engine has to breath deep to make power.

You got both ends corked up.

Don;t ask epole how much power it will make Put the engine on a engine dyno and dyno test it wht your dunky carb and exhaust and then compare to the dyno headers and the 750HP carb that all dyno shops got on hand and you will see.

The engine cannot make power if you choke it. Why even ask. its not rocket science.
