I know what I have, how do you think it will perform?
Hello all, new to the Forum and am excited to get any tips or tricks anyone has to offer.
I have 2 64 Galaxies and 4 engines, 2 352's and 2 390's. The 352's are complete and the 390's are a garage find that I've had to piece together.
Anyhow, this is what I got. 390 block will be bored .30 over. Heads are C4AE-G, which I've heard they are HiPo high risers, or the just everyday heads for the FE. New cam with hydraulic lifters, need some advice to which one might be a good match, since I'll be needing a new one. I also have the factory Police Interceptor aluminum intake, which I have considered selling to finance the rebuild, but hopegully I can keep it and use it. I have also read that the PI intake will take a 750 cfm 4 barrel. However, I have two FoMoCo Holley looking carbs with no idea what thier cfm is. I also have an Edelbrock carb from my garage find, but haven't checked part numbers yet to see how big it is. ANy advice in the cardb realm would be helpful too.
I am in the process of getting the machine work done on the engine parts and haven't bought much other than that.
Anyone have any ideas of performance for this kind of engine? If I recall, a stock 390 is 9.5:1 with 300 hp. I assume I should do a little better than that
