Just finished getting my mods done on a 95 12V. Was wondering what kind of HP. and torque I should expect from it?
It had 40,000 miles and added a BD super B turbo, 3000 gsk springs, #5 cam fuel plate, 181 delivery valves, timing set at 15.5, dynomite stage 2 75HP injectors and a ATS exhaust manifold. I do have gauges and had a auto trans built up, killed the KDP and "O" ringed the head. Its going in my 54 chevy COE.

400/900
When i talked to the guys at DDP they said the their 75hp injector would only flow enough for up to 375 hp. I would assume they know what their talking about, but i dono 400/900 is my guess

HP is a very old way of measuring power.... Hence HORSE power, calcualtion based on how much weight a horse could lift in a minute or something like that. Now, many years later we have ways of actually measuring it, the dyno! It measures in ft/lb's torque.

But, our society still believes in the old HP game so we calculate that out to make all the 16 year olds happy when they go buy a honda popcan!

Like the old saying goes, torque wins races, hp sells parts :D
