getting a 400

out of a 75 catalina. 2bbl. will pull it out of catalina this week. needs timing chain. but i heard it turn over sounded very healthy. all original. i just want my ta running at this point and will put it in after tc replacement. i will replace 2bbl intake and carb with 4bbl. what kind of torque do these babies have stock>> and what kind of horsepower on a low budget can i get out of one of these. thanks.

Not a Troll?

What kind of torque, enough to pull that Catalina without any problem with a two bbl carb. How much HP can you make on a budget? Well my budget is small, about $300 a week so what kind of budget did you have in mind? I don't think you really need much and then there are people who want blower on everything?? You have to be careful when you ask questions like these. You could be labeled a Troll if you don't come off sincere. How much is to much for you, or for me? What years the TA? I had a 75 TA with a 400 and it moved just fine stock.

monte if it's the Pontiac, loads, or Buick 400 it's a big block. The katalina is a Pontiac. So the 400 is a 400bb. Oh well, Just figured I put my 2 cent's in there. The engine is going to be a torqe monster because of the car it was pulling. look for the hp to be around 300-330 tops.
