my thoughts and opinions is its one of the best and toughest engines back in the day like if you take it to a drag strip stock it aint that fast but like round the town or some place its plenty enough power but i got a 440-6pack mag. and its bascally a fully build engine deep sump oil pan,magnetic connectin rods been stroked,bored 60 over i think over or more bigger cam,heavier ex. and intake spring,wanted to go with roller lifters but didnt have enough money but new ex. and intake valves 3-2barrel carbs. its a little fast!! it gets like 1 1/2 to 2 miles to a gallon its kinda funny i joke with people and i said it gets 5 tanks to a mile and its funny tho
when i got it back a few years ago we was takin it up the road and we was goin 90mph and it wasnt half way down yet but that was b4 i rebuild the engine at that time it had a worn cam in it so i went with a hair bigger cam and got it runnin and it sound mean with a good deep lope idling but i didnt fine tune the carbs so it was runnin lean bad and i was trien to put it in the garage and got it in gear and tapped the gas and it threw me in the back of the seat and almost hit a wood pile but got it in the garage now im trien to fix the oil pan it leaks alittle bit but after i get it back together i wanna take it to a dyno and drag strip after the motor gets a good broke in
