This may sound like a dumb question, but between the 2nd gen 283's, anyone know of a way to tell if it's a 195hp or 220hp engine??

As far as I know, they are both "194" stamped blocks, with small valve 3884520 Power Pack Heads with 2 bbl carbs, right?

Is it the Cam that makes the difference?
Can you only tell from the build sheet that the 220hp was opt'ed for?

Curious?!

If you find a build sheet, the 195HP was RPO L32 and the 220HP was L77. The 220HP had a 4 barrel carb and factory dual exhausts.
