SkipperC said:I had really forgotten how bleak things really were back then. 157 horses out of a 302 was something to get all giddy about. Man, my 72 240Z put out 152 stock and after a mild cam, an e91 racing head, free flow exhaust and dumping the SU's for some Weber's, it was making a titch over 200. Nowadays, 250 is almost laughable.
Yeah, 200 hp in the mid '80s was a big deal...I remember as a teenager getting my 5.0 and thinking 225 was plenty... today, there are V6s with over 300..
