I'm guessing 383/383hp. I've got aftermarket heads and a mild roller, but the small carb and restricted shorties strangle the horses. It's for cruising, so the extra TQ is nice.

great to hear from you again Milton. The nationals is a great show, everyone should do it at least once, I've done it 3 times now and probably will go at least 1 more time.
