The stock Oldsmobile 403 in the '79 Trans-Am'* had 185 HP, less HP than the Chevy 400, but more torque. And the numbers that my 403 is cranking out now... I honestly don't know. I've never took it to a dyno, and I don't even want to make an estimate. I've been working on the engine for about two years now (bored 0.60 over, Crane lift-cam, etc.), I'll get more indepth about engine modifications later in the proper forum.

Now... I have taken it to the famous Bithlo 1/4 mile drag strip. One of my favorite races was the time I went against a Porsche Carrera drop-top. I had so much distance on him, after the race he immediately drove home (after he already paid full admission for the entire night). Another one of my favorites was when I raced a modified Surbaru WRX STi on the strip. His car ran mid 12'*, and I pulled him by more than a car length. He took it in stride though, and we became friends. I'll also put up my specs from Bithlo later aswell (in the proper forum).

But... before I put up my strip specs, I would like some Southeast Bonneville Club members to see it in action sometime, that way I have witnesses (unless you all REALLY want to see the specs, then I'll post them).

Thank you everyone for the positive comments.This is a great forum, and I'm really glad that I joined.
