Which Comp 284? Hydraulic flat tappet, Hydraulic roller??
Lift?
Rocker ratio used?

Which Dart heads? They have several!! And the earlier ports are different than the latest "Platinum" series.:yes:

What intake and carb?

Any port work?

Who built the engine? Pro shop? Build quality will have a LOT to do with the output potential.:yes:

What rings were used? Gaps? Radial tension?

Who's pistons?

Actual compression MEASURED?

Quench distance?

Headers or manifolds?


There's a LOT more to it than just what you listed. My ballpark would put it somewhere in the 375 to 450 range. But a poor tune could easily make it 300.:rolleyes:

I would expect it to start and run, hopefully for a long time. What would you expect? I suppose my expectations could be somewhat lower than yours.

Take my last post and fill in the blanks.:yes:

As for estimated E.T.....Include the vehicle weight, tires used, traction devices, suspension style (stock, ladder bar, 4-link, etc.), driving style, clutch (make and style) and launch RPM.
