eloc431962 Cobalt's right about getting the 400 pluse torque, and IIRC that engine should be in the 305 -325 ft/lbs from the factory anyway.

Maybe someone knows the factory torque rating for it- I have Chevrolet manuals but they're either newer or older than '72. The factory ratings started taking a hit in '71 w/the lower CR, etc. required by the fedgov, and how the power ratings were figured changed from gross to net- which made the '72-up engines look 'weaker'.

Bottom line is it really doesn't matter what it HAD, it can make 400-plus ft/lbs w/relative ease.

gmc1990rodder Thanks alot project69,do you know how much torque?
11-11-2011 06:50 AM
projectman69 Uh looks to be around 72 with 170hp it'll have plenty of torque, but if you're planning on doing anything with this engine these will really mean nothing.
