   "In the day" my BEST Paxton blown 289 ( with REAL GT40 heads) made about 535 flywheel HP. This was with a special 12-13 psi ( limited by belt slippage) blower and roller cam. Modern heads are better but I doubt they are 150 hp better than I made , especially with less boost. I call bogus on the HP claim.
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

I just stumbled across this topic. This is my old car, there is some history missing, and it looks like a lot of work was done to the underside after it left my possession. Does anyone know where it went?

I had a 67 Convertible years ago. I had Powered by Ford in Orlando put on the same blower. I took it for the first drive and though this thing is down on power! He explained to me how there is a cross over point before which the blower uses more power than it produces. That was an expensive lesson for a young lad. I like low down grunt rather than high RPM power for the street. They look neat but not my cup of tea now
