That's a nice street cam for your combo.

I ran almost the same combo with approx. 9.5:1 cr and got 213 RWHP thru a C4.

Well there ya have it almost my motor....differences are Im running gt40 P ported heads, Harland sharp roller rockers and 9.1:1 commpression 30 over for 306. Havent set it in stone on what carb yet...but the Bronco has a long way to go before its ready....I need a distributor, some P headers and a carb! Ditch the stock rockers and Ill give ya 300-315 at the crank.

estimates on my combo

That is almost my set up except for the H pipe and headers. According to the desk top dino I should be making 265 hp at the fly wheel, bt you should get at least 270. With that in mind and guestimating the weight on a 73 stang to be about 3560 lb, that should give you low 14's or very high 13's.

i would be very very happy with 13s...just hope im not doing anything that will screw me over using this car as a daily driver. i was thinking of using nitrous, but then i know ill bag on it too hard, and i have cast pistons, so im gonna avoid the juice, for now at least.

With a T5 you need to change those rear gears to 3.55's or what ever ratio 9"'s have around that.

estimates on my combo

like i said, will be going to 3.50s, have a 3rd member from a pickup, pretty sure it is 28 spline to match my axles. i have all my parts except for cam and intake, and the tranny of course, but i was planning on buying a T5 off of the board. im just wondering about the exhaust, if the H pipe is the right idea for a daily driver, it just seems alot more doable on my budget. the reason i picked the carb i did is i have ran alot of 600 edelbrocks on daily drivers and they have worked out well, and throttle response is decent. i never could make a holley run as smooth as an edelbrock in a street car, just seemed like they didnt pull as clean from down low. as far as everyone's estimated, i would be happy with 270-280hp, considering i was shooting for 250!
thanks for the input everyone

Biggest thing to get that last little bit of power and effieciency out of it would be a good tune. I would spring the $$ for a dyno tune that comes with a carb tune and distributor re-curve. Make sure the dyno has a air/fuel ratio monitor. That stock distributor will have a lousy curve in it for your engine and the chances of your carb being just right out of the box are pretty slim. Plus with the dyno tune, you'll know you're not running lean anywhere...

Neal,
once the car is assembled and the engine is initially started and broken in, it will come to college with me for an afternoon of tuning on the Dynojet, we are able to monitor air fuel ratio, plus they have a way better timing light than me(snap-on). only thing i will need some help with is the distributor, as far as getting the curve right and all. the carb will not be a new in box one, it will be one that i have, rebuilt and tuned for my setup. i have rebuild a ton of E-brocks, and there is nothing to them.
thanks for all the help
