that's right, I forgot the 375 hp used a Holly (not double pump..) right? would I still be getting a nice bang for my buck, seeing how I'm not gonna be changing anything else on the motor like heads, cams..?
Yeah Mark there were a few differences. I'll try to recall some;
11.5:1 CR to 10.25:1
Rectangular ports to oval
Aluminum high rise to iron (right about that Mark)
Steel crank and rods, forged pistons, to: not sure
Solid cam to hydraulic
Dual valve springs with dampeners
2.19 in. 1.88 ex. valves to (a little smaller)
Holley to Quadrajet
Chrome engine trim to painted parts
High torque starter to grocery-getter
Seven blade aluminum clutch fan to something less
Interlocking motor mounts to the ones that caused the recall
Four core radiator to a smaller one
Oh wait. The radiator isn't part of the engine stuff. Sorry. It's like the massive transmissions and rear end needed to hold all the extra grunt. And the exclusion of creature comforts like Air Conditioning. After all, it's a man's engine.
And give me a minute, there's more.
Oh yeah, that damn high-nickel block.
