Re: L30 & LF7 Where the HP differance?
Like was said above,..higher compression, larger valves, and 4 bbl vs. 2, made the diff between the 210 vs. 275 hp 327's.
But don't forget, even at 275 hp, that would be equal to about 220 hp at the wheels (20% penalty for drivetrain and accessory drag...today's cars hp ratings are measured at the wheels,..not flywheel as was the case pre-1972).
I know a few (ebay, etc) are lobbying for the 275 hp 327 HP to be held as SS's. I say no way. We're talking late 60's here,..not late 50's.
