I think you mean 3 6 5 Horsepower. Your friend is correct. 365 was a rating some for 1970 Chevrolet 454s.

sounds like you got a sweet deal, sounds like you got an ls-5 big block and th-400 for 650bucks take a look at the crank, it should have a 1/2 inch wide center ridge on the flange behind the flexplate, makeing it a forged steel crank.

all you will need to do is do a little port and polish job on the heads, give it a COMP magnum 292 hydraulic cam, and a preformer RPM intake and youŽll have a durable 500 HP engine.

sounds like your friend got the worst part of that deal of you ask me.
