Straight LPG, Impco 425.
Crank/Rods/Pistons: 351 crank, 302 rods /w ACL 10:1 comp pistons
Heads: 2v closed chamber heads, relieved to around 62cc, pocket ported with stock valves
Camshaft: GRA Stage 3 ( Approx .530 lift, more then they advertise ) Good for around 2000-5600rpm.
Intake: Redline Street Torker manifold
Exhaust: Pacemaker 4-1, dual 2 1/2"
Ignition: MSD HVC Coil & MSD leads. Pro Comp distributor with EFI Mustang pickup.
Milidon sump, pickup & windage tray.
True compression i'm guessing around 11:1 ?
Had problems with the distributor, it was seized in the block so we couldn't get the timing right. Was set at 10 degrees static. The auto is on its last legs so I told the guy to take it easy.
Output was 225rwhp. The Dyno Dynamics chart has Lb on the right and HP on the left. The torque curve is very flat with 1100 Lb on the right and 145 on the left. Don't know if someone work out the torque from that, certainly doesn't have 1100 ft/lbs and I would think it would have more then 145?? Shrug.
Will need to fix the distributor and take it back once its done a few more k's.
My straight LPG 351 also made 170 RWK which is 227 Rear wheel horsepower.
I'm also using similar specs to you.

I'll find my torque graph and get those details as well.
I think the limiting factor in our set ups is the IMPCO carb.
You may find that you won't get too much more Kw out of the motor.
I'm going to try a bigger converter to see if that helps any. ( ELKO E 420 )
Whole set up ran a 14.3 at Calder in an XE with street tyres and a little bit of wheelspin. ( As much as I could control it anyway.........this thing will spin for a 100 metres if I let it !!!!!!!!!! )
Looking at replacing the whole exhaust with mandrel bent system and x pipe.
2 1/4 all the way through with some good mufflers.
New Converter ( ELKO E 420 )
Muck around with IMPCO to de dag it and smooth out some roughage for better flow.
Hoping for 14.0 or even a 13.9 quarter..................fingers crossed
