I just built a 383ht for my 97 chevy truck the engine makes 340 horse and 435 ft lbs of torque. I was almost thinking about building another one of these for my 65 nova I wonder how it would run in such a light car? Any thoughts you guys might have? The car will mostly be a driver and maybe see an occasional midnight drags run.

i got this off gm's website

you also get a broad torque band that peaks at 435 lb,-ft, at 4000 rpm with 340 horsepower at 4500 rpm, it looks like it makes over 350 lb ft at just 2000 rpm

those have relatively small cams so I doubt it would rev past 5,000RPMs.
It would be a good foundation. With the right cam and heads and intake it be a fun ride!!!
