Default edelbrock power package

has anyone used one of those edelbrock power package that includes cam, heads, manifold, timing chain, etc? they claim the kit i am look at can make 367 hp with 9.5 compression ratio from a 289. seems like all the parts in a kit like this would match each other well.

They might be a tad optimistic on power, but it's a decent kit. I'd get a roller cam, flat tappet cams these days can be really pissy with modern oils, and require specific break in.

Trick flow also has good kits, and you can part your own out and get a custom cam for not too much more money.

it depends on your goal and your wallet.

you made need special postins with trick flow heads.

if your current pistons are stock i would not run an intake valve bigger than 1.9. afr 165 and eddy street heads have 1.9. the street heads also have an option for a bigger valve.

i prefer to buy parts individually so i can get the results i want.

if you want a lot of hp, your bottom end needs to be built for it and i would use afr heads.

how much money do you have?

do you want a tire burner?

do you want a mild, moderate or nasty idlke?

what octane gas will you run?

what is your rear gear ratio?

are you willing to change it?

do you want a drag car, a freeway flier or inbetween?

what trans do you have?

this is a complete resto so nothing is set in stone yet. i was thinking 3.55 gears, don't care if i have to use 93 octane gas. the car will be an occasional driver. C4 tranny which i will have performance built. don't want to put a million dollars into this but at the same time will not cheap out. would be happy with about 300 hp.
