How much power would it make?
I have a friend with an 81 mustang lx coupe, and hes droping in an 8.8 rear, c6 trans, and a 460. The 460 will have stock ported heads, with CJ valves, 11:1 compression, a solid flat tappet cam, with .580 lift, and about 240* duration @.050. He will also be running a torker intake with an 850 holley. The car will have 2 inch headers, and a stock dual exhaust to keep things stealthy. Hes doing this setup because, he doesnt have to spend a dime at all. The 81 is reayd for a big block, and he has every part for the motor and car because of a deal gone sour about 10 years ago. He ended up with all these parts. So, I say that car with 4:10's and a 28x10 slick will go bottem 12's if not high 11's all day long. He says not as fast. What do you guys think. The car weighs 2900 lbs, with the motor in it. He figures it at about 400 at the flywheel. I say closer to 500.
