How much power

If i got a 465 Holley, Redline manifold, Yella Terra roller rockers, Ported and polished head with oversized valves, Crow cam, Rollmaster timing kit, ACL pistons, Pacemaker extractors and a 2.5 inch exhaust on a 250 x-flow how much power do you think this wood be in kW? Also would this be anough power to spin both wheels in an XA. I dont want to put a V8 into my XA because everyone does that!

130kw maybe

Not enough to spin both wheels in a car with that much weight.

if you want all the benefits of over carburation then put the 465 on it.. Frankly, if you want to go fast in a car of that weight with a NA X Flow 6 you are wasting your time unless you have a lot of money to throw at it (more than a V8 conversion ). If you really want to stay with a 6 then super/turbo charge it and at least get some EFI for it.
