Car is back on the road now with a 5.0 roller block. The engine is stock, carbeurated with a 600 cfm Edelbrock carb and dual plane intake. Has stock C-4 auto and headers. What is the est. rear wheel HP? About 210? It pulls a lot stronger than the old 289 I had before. Thanks as always.

My wifes 5.0, AOD, 2.73 had about 200 rear wheel . i would expect that you would have the same. The car was stock and ran a best 14.93 @ 93 MPH.

You have lost the EFI and want rear wheel HP, right?

About 150 to 170

Given the entirety of your drivetrain, I'll concur with Bill's guesstimate....

Our old drivetrains aren't quite as efficient as the modern stuff, which has an effect on RWHP.

Your seat-of-the-pants feeling likely is coming from the combination of the efficient roller cam in the 5.0L, combined with the increased low-rpm torque of the longer crank throw and increase in CID...it does make a difference...
