300 HP 289 Engine Question:
I was reading on another website about a 300 HP 289 or 302 that can be built for $1500.00. The engine is a rebuit 289-302 that is bored .060, uses 11:1 Badger pistons, milled(.030) stock heads with screw in studs and a comp Cams 270S solid cam. It also uses an Air Gap intake with a 750 carb and Headman 4 tube headers. I have a standard bore rebuilt stock 4V 289 in my \'65 Fastback, and I was wondering how good the 270S cam would work if I left the bore and pistons stock and installed the intake,carb and headers. Also, how well would the stock 4100 Autolite carb work until I can buy a 750 Holley. I really want to get the car running, but at this point a little more work and money are no big deal as I have waited long enough to get the car running.
