I can say in all honesty I did expect more,but I wasn't expecting a lot at one time. A decent burnout would have been nice. Which I have been able to do with past 318 Mopars. But the car is too heavy. A 440 or 451 Stroker is the right choice for this car. It doesn't have to have a 6 BBL. But I do want tire shredding performance and I will put it in this car one way or another. I do plan on taking weight out of the car.
