I just spent 1800 on my 307,lol if you want!

tell me about your 350 rocket..
Nevermind, I thought you meant you had a 307 and wanted this done,


but if its already done, keep it... will be a reliable motor, and run forever

yea... but napa wanted 1800 just for the complete performance rebuild kit, alone! ''I told them that Ide rather eat cat shit with a nit & needle, than pay 1800 on a 307''.. so they reduced the price.. Its hard as hell to find parts for my engine, and the emissions clutter is a b*tch!

do you know anything about enging bores?

wtf, is what I said! and Im getting free labor, $1800 just for the kit with rebuilt heads, roller cam, and a lot of other shit! But anyways how much extra HP should I expect.. My car was 140hp stock.. what do you guys think?

I just had my 307 engine bored 0.40 over, how much extra HP should I expect?
If it was 0.40 over it would be something like a 450 cubic inch :biggrin:

So that said, being 0.040 over increases displacement slightly. Maybe to 310-312 cu in and SLIGHTLY increases compresson ratio from about 8.5:1 to around 8.55:1. I'd say you'll gain about 10HP. And thats not noticable.

So, whats the point of boreing an engine.... 10hp thats it?

who uses the emissions "clutter" anyways? :dunno:

EXACTLY. Anyone who claims they're engine is hot shit soley because it is bored out don't know shit about engines.

(MY personal favorite is when I hear "yup, this engine is bored out as much as it can go".....ooh congradulations lol)

The ACTUAL reason for boring and engine is when u take it apart and the cylinder walls have wear that cannot be removed by simple honing. Then, you would need to bore it.

I mean, sure the increased compresson ratio and cubic inch displacement does a little bit, but not enough to notice. Now, if you are building a racing motor, that 10HP might end up being 20 or more and that's a big deal in 1/4 mile times. For 307 though, it don't mean shit.

it actually decreases the compression ratio....think about it, bigger cylinder, more room for the mixture = less compression.

Actually, I beg to differ :biggrin:

The logic you are using isn't how compression ratio is determined, but rather volume of the piston cylinder. See, compression ratio is determined by the volume of the piston cylinders ratio to that of the cylinder head's volume. So, an increase in piston cylinder volume (boring an engine out) would also increase the compression ratio if the cylinder head size was the same. Look at it like this:

if the volume of the cylinder head is 64cc and the cylinder volume was 640cc then your compression ratio would be 10:1. If you increase your cylinder volume to lets say 650cc then it would be 10.16:1

Here's a calculator to help you out and is a nice tool to figure these things out:

http://www.csgnetwork.com/compcalc.html


To test what I am saying, look at the compression ratio of a 4" bore engine. Then change that bore to 4.030 (0.030 over bore) and you will see it will increase the compression ratio :biggrin:

class dissmissed :cool:
