Re: cleveland power, cheapest easist power!

Typical for a clevo as they are choked manifold wise.

Well kinda similar results.

I spent not quite $200 on my Holden Slurry, and it went from 29rwkw to almost 45rwkw!!!!!!

Balltearing stuff I know!.

Seriously though. That sounds reasonable power out of a 302. they don't need much to liven them up.

Now stick a 351 crank & rods in! :)

Re: cleveland power, cheapest easist power!

When I first got my coupe the motor was an original XB 351 2V.

A 204/214 camshaft, another set of valve springs, a factory 4 barrel 2V manifold, thermoquad, plugs and electronic distributor made a big difference. Still not what I would call powerful, but atleast respectable.
