He ended up at about 245-255 HP, so would assume about a 300 net going through a 5 speed.
He just knew it was going to be 450-500 hp and was pretty pissed, his mistake was listening to his friends guessing HP.
his motor is totally different, sure its a sbc but not even in the same year range. anything below i want to say 87 ? will be different from mine
