you want to keep up with them, 347!! 347 , fast as cast tfs 190cc heads...Custom cam, and a tfs box intake and all supporting mods such as exhaust, gears and fuel system and this should keep you at the front of the pack, as for 347 overheating on long drives..lol lol lol and more lol......what uneducated person told you that???

FYI Zebo, 86-95 are all fuel injected. 86-88 are speed density while 89-95 are mass air. I would call BS on your 440 crank hp but I think you just don't know.

i dont know what i was thinking about saying they werent fuel injected. i could be wrong with hp estimate. ive done the bumbers a few times over and over and it seems thats where i am. thats why i want to get it on a dyno to really know. it might not be that much, youre right i dont know.

for about the same price you can build a 408 windsor thatll put out more power than a 347 could, yea its a little heavier but with aluminum heads it aint by much. build it smart and LET IT EAT! with the supporting engine and suspension mods youll beat em and youll beat em bad. good luck
