302's with carbs are a dime a dozen.
its not often you come across a real big 1100 cube engine.

at least you will never be late for work again.

Yeah, "small output"
You can get 500hp from a 302w with a single 4 barrel, and it would be a sh*tload easier. As for the torque, where is he gonna use it? Maybe in a truck, or for climbing up brick walls. It will do great skids at very low rpm, but what's the fun in that. Go get a 500HP CAT diesel out of a truck and away you go.
This guy has done this for one reason - the toss factor of having the heads, etc sticking out thru the bonnet. It will be in top gear in about 3 feet, and be as exciting as a prime mover running around bob-tail. WOW! :roll:

you couldn't get 500hp from a 302 and have it as a 'drivable car' though.
500hp at 7000rpm, big deal. 500hp at 2500rpm, thats something to brag about.

as for the torque, get enough tyre under the back of it and enough gears behind it and it'll make a 500hp 302 look like a toy
