As I mentioned earlier, I’ve got Dazed and Confused running as I’m working today. Just got to the scene where Wooderson (Matthew McConaughey) is extolling the virtues of his 1970 Chevelle SS 454 “Melba Toast”.

He lists of the following engine features/mods:

  • [Holley] 750 Double Pumper
  • Edelbrock intake
  • Bored over .030
  • 11:1 pop-up pistons

He claims 390 horsepower (SAE Gross at the crank on leaded gas, I’m assuming, given the time period).

What do you think?
