Re: Hp overkill
have a friend with a Mark Jones 670hp 496 in a 71 Vette
car is pretty much stock xept motor.
mild gear and verter, mellow cam, rear streetable cruiser
Talk with Mark about one of his 496s
you need a fuel system and exhaust to support that kinda power.
at min. frame connectors and slapper bars with an good single adj. shock in the rear ... and tires. it will still be only good from a 50-60mph roll.
