I'm not sure what's been done to your motor but there are times when it sounds rowdy. I'd say an easy 285-300.

My new engine is supposed to lay down 410ponies is what edelbrock says, im going to knock it a bit by running propane on it but it will be okay because i hated seeing what carbs and angles had in store for me while we were at trees lol

A Ford F-250 that i paid 400 bucks for

Trading it to brandon after i do some work for his engine i just picked up. Its got the Edelbrock Performer aluminum heads that have 2.02 intake, 1.60 exhaust, 185cc intake runners and 64cc combustion chambers. The engine has the edelbrock top end package with the intake, carb, cam, and heads. Im changing the cam for a bigger one that brandon has and may change the intake for a single plane.

Oh i forgot to say what engine lol. It is a 350 with a semi fresh bottom end on it. Maybe some day it will grow a few cubes with a 400 crank and some different rods, but for now im going to leave well enough alone and just fix the oil leaks.

Lol a factory carb engine was 180hp. You are falling into 4 cyl territory if those numbers you claim are correct haha

Have you not added any stickers to your rig? They are usually good for about 5hp each depending on the size and where they are located. Just a heads up.

What pistons are in it? Compression is more important than cubic inches when dealing with propane.

You have a point. I have no stickers at all right now. Once I get my panels on, all my stickers that have been waiting in a box will go on the hood. Should put me in the 450 range after that.

Edelbrock is full of **** if they think that motor has 410hp with that combination of parts. haha. And the bottom end was rebuild in 2007.

Edelbrock 2098 Edelbrock Power Package Top End Kits

If you click on the heads they have in the parts description it is the exact same as the ones this engine has. The RPM's are actually a lower performance head than the ones on this engine but with this kit they are the bigger of the two with the 2.02/1.60 combo.

Okay so I looked a little closer and the intake on the engine I have is not the same one as the package, it is only a mild performer or something of that nature. The cam they have in this kit is not all that aggressive and its only .480 lift. At any rate the engine im getting has alot of potential for a decent build.
