    Well then, which one?

    Underrated. By the way, that's still 1.5 horsepower per cubic inch.
    There is indeed a significant difference. One is a bold, unsubstantiated, talk out your ass claim, the other is back peddling because you got called on it.

    My head it not up my rear.

    My point was SAE Gross figures are not the same as SAE Net. Are you disputing that?

    What was "smoke and mirrors"?

    I hope it's been educational as well.

    John, you know perfectly well after reading my response that I was not referring to the factory Cross-rammed 302's. I was initially referring to Smokey Yunick. Claiming "almost 2 horsepower per cubic inch" on my part, I was embellishing on the 1.7 to 1.8 mark... as it is my understanding, as well as other Yunick fans, that Yunick clearly emphasized "way over 500 horsepower", in reference to Chevy's high-winding 302, after they were finished with it.

    That's more believable. However, I don't think SVT has had the same freedoms. They are really a factory tuner, not after market. Being the age of political correctness SVT also has to content with modern emmisions laws, unleaded low octane gas and CAFE standards. Overall I think they do a pretty kick ass job.
