ENGINE not giving enough power? i dont know!? HELP!
I have a 1968 Firebird, which my father and I recently put in a GM 350 HO crate engine (I know... GM in Pontiac...sorry) with a 700R4 transmission. To my knowledge this is alot more horsepower, and a better transmission I had in before with stock 327 and 2 speed power glide transmission.... BUT I feel like it has less power then it did with the old crappy engine and transmission. I DO understand the cam and transmission have to do with WHERE to power goes.... but this engine is suppose to be "great" but the car can barley spin its wheels...the car sounds great but the bark is worse then the bite. Is there something that can be restricting the power that the mechanics have done for "my protection" that my father asked them to do......... or is it i have to buckle down and get a new cam? Any input would be GREAT... thanks.
