302 + Full Size Car

Just bought a 71 Torino 2 door with a 302 and c4 automatic. Just curious in aspects, how fast is this car comparatively to other cars on the road. Obviously the small block isn't that powerful and its a heavy car, but do you think it has enough guts to pull this car around? Better than a I6 right

Re: 302 + Full Size Car

There is a ton of stuff for building up a peppy 302 in addition to all the stroker kits as well. It should be fine for getting around but don't expect any real acceleration out of it, especially that era. But like I siad, there is a ton of parts you can get to make some respectable power.
