iirc it makes 165-170 Hp and 250 Ft Lbs... Most likely has the Fuel economy gears too...

Not a bad overall car..

if it already has HEI then yu could get a hotter coil, but an MSD Igition would be good too

Yeah the specs were in the Owners manual. 170hp, 255tq. I still need to check the RPOs to see what axle it has.

I got some RPOs

F40 : Suspension System, Heavy Duty Front and Rear
G80: Positraction (Limited Slip)
G92 : Axle Rear Ratio, Performance, 3.08
L03: 305 TBI V8, 170hp, 255tq

Not bad IMO. I drove it today again after the tuneup, gained a shitload of power.
