What We Have Here Is ??? Hp

I pulled the heads to find out exactly what I bought . It is a .030 over 350 (355) with flat top pistons and 1.94 intake valves . Head casting # 462624 . Checking the cam lift at the intake lifter using my digital caliper I find it to be about .230 . No idea of duration . I'm running a Weiand dual plane low rise intake with an Edelbrock 1406 carb .I heard it run before I pulled it out of a 67 Camaro . It does have a lopey cam .The block is a '74. ( irrelevant ) Anybody care to take a rough guess of what I have for horsepower ? I am sure it is going to put that tired 305 that I pulled out to shame at any rate. It is going in my '23 T-bucket . 1840 lbs .

Kind of hard to say without more input, Im guessing that the heads are stock 79-85 72cc 194 heads. (??) And a lopey cam with only .230 lift..?? Curious. A lot of cam overlap with low compression heads is NOT a good combination.

Im guessing your HP is in the 350 ish range. And If Im right about the heads then that might be generous. Power starts with a good set of heads.

Same as 65smallblock says but I won't be that optimistic, I'll say somewhere between 290-310....but again very hard to say with info given. Whatever it is it will definately haul the freight in that T-bucket....have fun.
