hp to displacement

i seen a thread on here to figure when you bore 350 .060
over you end up with a 360 ci how would this relate terms of hp
and how would a cam shaft come into play as to determin extra hp. just curious gets kinda confusing as far as knowing what effects what as far as power.its like im in school again.


thx pjs

ok, here is a guess... with a bigger block.. more fuel, bigger cam, valves open more allowing the more fuel to enter, more fuel being burnt means more power is produced... that sounds right..

There is a lot a variables on the horsepower you get out of an engine. Pistons, cam, heads, headers,type of headers, size of headers, intake, carb, angle of the valve grind, bore, overbore, etc. Somewhere in the Knowledge Base there is a site that takes engines with different setups and shows how many horses you can get out of it. If I can find it I'll point you in the direction.

also.. More air into the engine = more hp..

your engine is like your lungs.. it needs to breath.. the better it breaths.. the stroger it is the more hp it is..

Or, build it and Blow it up!

Using Nitrous, NOS, juice! Always FUN to spend lots of $$$$ to build an engine then Blow it up pumping 150 to 300hp more into it with juice! Fun for the people watching too. My engine builder won't even TALK to people about a Nitrous build up. Buy a GOOD carb and intake, steel crank, roller cam and roller rockers and Good 2.02" or 2.05" heads, then a 2 1/2" or 3" exhaust with turbo style mufflers. I run timing gears and over sized oil pan and deep sump/pick up, on a stock pressure/volume pump. I bolt on my HP build ups and don't bore my engines. Except for my 400sbc, it needed bored to be able to use it, as it had a broken ring in it before I got it and it scored the bore and needed bored out ot let the rings seal. I hope I can cure the overheating problem usually inherent with a 400/406sbc engine.
