X3 what tech and bogie said...

My guess is nowhere NEAR what horsepower you would get using that camshaft in an engine set up propery for that cam. You will require a static compression ratio of 11:1 , quench at 35 - 40 thou , good flowing aftermarket heads , 750 CFM carby / victor junior, upgraded ignition system, 3500 stall converter , MIMIMUM 3.50:1 gearing( with a 26" tyre ),
Ya can't just chuck a camshaft like that into a 'stock' bottom end and expect that it's gonna be all good, if it was THAT easy, everybody would be doing it!
