Here ya go

Id say Im close to that but I have no records to prove it.
I have an 0010 block, 2 bolt main
stock rods
trw forged flat top pistons with four valve relief (10.25:1)
vic jr bowtie 2 intake with 4 hole spacer
speed demon 750cfm duel inlet 20inhg
canfield 195cc intake runners, 64cc combustion chambers, 2.055in. 1.6ex. valves
afr girdles and some guide plates
comp hardened 3/8 push rods
scorpion aluminum roller rockers 1.5
comp dual springs
cloyes double rolling timing set
speed pro cam with 268-278adv dur, 470? lift 220dur @50 Thats just off the top of my head on the cam, real close but dont quote me. I know its a hair small but it works real good and I drive this baby everyday. hydro. flat tappet. with comp lifters and VR1 10-30
high flow and hardened malory or is it mellings ... :confused: oil pump and shaft.
holly high flow mechanical fuel pump with stock tank
hei dist. with one light and one medium spring. 8.2mm wires vacuum adv. I plugged the advance tho
hedman headers 1 5/8 old nothing nice w/ 3" midpipe and dual flowmasters dumped underneith
auto rad radiator with duel electric maradyne fans.
long gm high flow water pump
manual brakes
no ac

Some time soon ill up the anti on my cam choice but since its running better than it ever has i figure why mess with it. I have zero issues using a single plane intake and since I swapped to the demon carb I have completely gotten rid of any annoying stumbles off the line. I love the heads and cant wait to do a rebuild cause Im going to get those babies ported along with the intake and a large hydraulic roller cam... well larger anyway. and of coarse after the block gets reworked ci will go up in size. Ive been thinking of swapping in some 1.6 roller rockers but I prolly wont unless i can find some new at a real good deal. lol thats how it is for me. All this works great with my aluminum t10 and 275/60/15s. nothing special but mine!

Anyway as for now I believe I am somewhere in that ball park. Im sure others will chime in.

This was an engine I built for my friend's 1955 210. Estimated 440 flywheel horsepower. 91 octane pump gas. Great running engine with a very wide power band, starting really pulling around 2,800 RPM and made good use-able power to 7,000 RPM. Consistent 170 - 180 degree operating temperature even in Phoenix summer heat and traffic. Outstanding drivability and low-speed response. The rest of the car was equipped with a custom built 9" torque converter that would flash 3,800 - 4,000 RPM, TH350 w/auto valve body, 3.89 rear gear, and 29" tall rear tire. Car would get around 14 MPG if he kept his foot out of it. This is an engine combo I would build again and again for a street car that was going to be driven on a regular basis. It was one of the snappiest, most responsive pump gas 350-based engine combos I've ever built.

these combos all sound like close to 500 hp to me, any time yours pulling to 7000 grand your close or over

Does anyone have any real ET slips to back this up? I'm building a 355, 12-1 engine with a set of Dart 200 runner Iron Eagles. .540/560 lift cam with 1.6 rockers on the intake. Edelbrock Air Gap and a 750 gas or alky carb. Gonna break it in on gas and probably run alky. Coan 10" convertor with a 1.76 glide with a brake and a 4.11 gear with a 30" tall tire. I know I need a little more gear, but that'll have to wait. All steel, 2975lbs without my 200. Just curious on what it may run. Dave

Right Dave, without proof it is just guessing....I have seen too many Dyno pulls putting HP dreams to shame, including my own:(:(....Jack

This is whats in mine, I'm guessing its close to there haven't dyno'd it to prove it though.

stock crank and rods
Speed Pro Hypereutectic dome postons 3.5cc
Dart Iron Eagle Heads 67.7cc chambers
Speed Demon 750 mechanical secondaries
Edelbrock rpm air gap
Comp Cams .529/.549 @.050 250/259 104 lsa
Comp solid lifters
Scorpion 1.5 rollers
Comp guided plates and hardened push rods
MSD 6al and Pro Billet dst.
10.5:1 cr was at 11.7 on race gas

Well, Jackel, I'd really like to get an idea what it may run. You can have all kinds of dyno numbers, but maynot have the chassis. I have a lot of chassis, but no real power yet. So before I install it, I was just curious. And 73, we have close to the same combo. What gear are you running? Dave

Geez, I guess my Civic must be making a lot more than the 197 H.P. the factory claims--I shift it at 8000 quite often!!:eek:

Plenty of engines in the 60's saw over 7000 RPM without coming close to 500 H.P.

I'd say you're close to me other than heads. I'm 12.3:1, 4.56's with a 28" drag radial, cam is 252/260, 536/554. I'm also running a 1.76 glide, air gap, 750 DP, 10" Coan, and 1.6 on the intake and 1.5's on exhaust. I'm 3190 with me in the car. Your tall tire and gear might hurt your 60' esp since you're using a glide.

500 flywheel horsepower from a 350-based combination is not as easily achieved as the magazines and internet would have you believe, especially when it's a pump gas combination. The car this engine combo was in would typically run 114 - 116 MPH in the 1/4. Based on the performance data and combination details that equates to approximately 440 - 460 flywheel horsepower once parasitic horsepower consumption is accounted for.

While horsepower is a function of RPM, 7,000+ RPM does not automatically indicate that your engine combination is producing 500+ FWHP.

original 3.08. it puts a smile on my face so im pretty happy. I dyno'd it when it was just the pistons, demon carb and old plg wires and i was at about 255 at eh wheels on the base run never got any further with it since my radiator was leaking and the outter ring of the balancer detached from the rubber...

Lugnut, What ET do you run? Yeah we are close. I like the tall tire look. I set the car up to look like a Stock Eliminator car. I'll also be getting a set of 9x30 tires soon. I'll give up a little on the 60's. Heck, it went 2.000 with the stock 305 in it. Anything better than that is a plus. lol Are you coming down to the Blue Suede Cruise at Norwalk this summer? They're bringing back Nostalgia drag racing. Dave

hey, hey, easy on my ancient setup. Are you saying my setup is that out dated that I can run the Nostalgia class? :rolleyes: I like hanging with some of the 383CI AFR headed guys at the track then showing them I just have some old technology. I typically run 11.58-11.65 @ 115.xx My best is in my signature. There's more in this combo though. I know its capable of high 11.40's. I was just getting the jetting dialed in last year with the wideband and broke a J bolt on one of my traction bars so I was done for the day. I haven't been back since. If I hit 11.49 I'd be super happy, and since I don't have a cage that would be my limit.

I'm hoping that it'll run around an 11.70. The car is mini tubbed, frame tied, 8-point roll bar, Cal Traks and 9" rear. If t runs that fast, I can run 12.00 footbrake, Pro with a brake, and Super Pro if I elect to put a box in it. It's legal as it sits to run 10.00's. Not that it'll see it, but if I want, I could.
