maybe 160 horses. if your not gonna rebuild it, do it a favor while it`s out, swap in a edelbrock performer plus cam, and a double roller timing chain to give it a low end torque and horsepower increase. a camaro, like a van, is no flyweight, it needs all the torque it can get.

Best bet would be to get the numbers off the back of the block. Will be back by where the engine and tranny bolt up together. There's a good site-www.mortec.com that gives out what engines are what by block numbers. Hope this helps ya out.

I'd say at least put a performer intake and 600 holley and headers on it.With that I'd say approx 225hp flywheel maybe more if its low milage.
Also while its out like said a cam will help power too.If ya go this route change the T chain and oil pump wile your in there.

found all my numbers

I ran my block numbers, not my head numbers, it says the block is from a 69 2 or 4 bolt main.I think i have made up my mind on what to do about the engine,if i could be of any assistance to anyone won't hurt to ask.I may not be the brightest tool in the shed but i have been hotrroding all my life,thanks again you guys.
