Been thinking about planning the rebuild of my 289 for the winter and was wonder how much hp does your 289/302 have? And what have you done to it?

I want to build it up for an occasional trip to the drag strip but mainly will be street driven with plenty of power.

I am rebuilding my 302 and I think I have decided to bore it .030 and then add the Edelbrock power package to it....It saya it will give 367 HP with 64cc Chambers and I will have 60cc chambers so I figure to be right around 300-315HP....After driving my 07 GT I dont think I could deal with less power so I got to be over 300. LOL

Let me know what you end up with and the HP..

Hope to see 330-350 hp at the motor once I get the car to the dyno .

Which Performer package are you looking at? It must be a pretty hot one. I've got a basic Edel Performer engine - cam, intake, 570 carb, Dart Windsor Jr heads, shorty headers. Mine dynoed at 265 at the flywheel; 210 at the wheels. My goal was the equivalent of a hipo engine, so I came very close. It's very streetable and mild mannered. Without stepping up to a stall converter, which I didn't want, that was the largest cam I felt comfortable with. Doesn't pull the vacuum away from the power brakes. Has a slight thump at idle in park, but sounds like a stocker for the most part. I truly was hoping for a better "thumping" sound, but this thing will never see the track, so I'm ok with it. If you're goal is around 360hp, it's gonna be short on street manners, imo.

This is the power package I found. I will probably get it locally but here is a description of it......The writeup does not say about the Chamber size on this one....

I added the performer RPM package to my early 289 block. ended up with 190 HP to the rear wheels. the car does sound awesome and people think its much more powerful than it actually is.

Somewhere between zero and 260rwhp. The 93-95 Cobras usually dyno right at 260rwhp with headers...which is what I'll end up with unless I go nuts and put a cam and ported heads on the 'ole Explorer motor.

I thought one of the first upgrades for power would be a switch to 4 barrel? The intake looks like a 2 barrel in the picture.
I'm confused...

Hopefully 230rwhp or more. I have run computer dynos and come up with 350 engine HP but that is optimistic. Apperantly the performer package is about 325hp at the engine and my cam/intake is more aggresive and heads probably flow every bit as much as the performer head...

Prior to adding aluminum heads, 240 rwhp. This
is through a C-6, Gear Vendors and a 9".
(My guess is at least 300 hp at the flywheel)
This one has Doug Thorley tri-Y's, an Edelbrock
Pro-Flo EFI, a 218 duration .477 lift cam and
the recently added Edelbrock RPM heads.
(professionally massaged)

I'm speaking for rjcruise who does not visit this site too much lately:

'66 289 .030 over
10:1 compression forged pistons
'66 heads fully ported with 1.9/1.54 valves
Comp 294S solid lifter cam
'60s era dealer option holley dual quad 540 cfm carb and intake setup
Ignitioneering modified and curved ford distributor
Dougs stepped Tri-Y headers
Borla exhaust

Engine was built by Superior Automotive in Anaheim, Ca

Engine originally dyno'd at 375 HP. Put it in the car and it chassis dyno'd at 315 RWHP (4 speed toploader and Auburn 8" rear). A few minor mods later it's 340+ RWHP or approximately 405 FWHP.
