      I had some time before class.
      AK - 48 @ 4000 (DIN) or 46 @ 4000 (SAE net) and 72 TQ @ 2000.
      That seems a little low on the hp side, I can get the car up to 90... THe only way to really know, I guess, is to have it dynoed.
      hmm..
      Thanks! Great thread.

      years ago when i used to play around with fuel and air mixtures on stock 1600DP or 1500SP i use to change the main jet and air correction jets and buy a 009 dizzy set it at 10 degrees btc and would get alot more performance out of stock motors i could actually get the wheels spinning

      Its hard to get actual numbers without knowing every single detail of an engine. You can have two engines with the exact same parts, but two different hp ratings. It all comes down to how it was built, compression ratio, quality of parts used, proper break-in procedure, and if it's tuned properly. For example, everyone seems to gravitate to a 009 distributor, but if you do a little research, you'll find that it's the worst distributor you could possibly use. The timing isn't consistent, it causes overheating, and it can cause serious detonation issues, there's a reason it's cheap. Your best bet distributor wise is a cast iron Bosch distributor like an 010 or 019. There's a lot to consider even when building a stock engine.

      And to think there's another world of tuneability out there if you switch to aftermarket fuel injection and crank-trigger spark.
