more like 125,000 miles.  Oil does not gather on an engine like that in just 25,000 miles, nor does the floor wear out under the gas pedal.   Get real

"435hp"? Not hardly. More like 550. They underrated them to appease insurance companies and the government. Street Hemi's were around 600hp if tuned correctly.

Jeez, mellow out, dude! I was just yankin' your blower drive on the "wait 2 years" trip. See, I'm used to YouTube being populated by nothing but blithering idiots. You actually sound rather intelligent. I'm surprised you kept your cool on the "Glass Top Datsun" smart-ass comment. As far as "talking out my ass", all I was doing was passing on the facts so "don't kill the messenger". You should have known.
SAE Net HP rating weren't fudged that much for particularly in 71' when they were first mandated for one. Two the chassis dyno test were done by reputable car publications to figure out the fact from fiction. Three chassis dyno reading are 12-20% lower than the net rating which is ~18% lower than gross rating. Four calling an engine a motor is fine what you can't do is call an electric motor an engine thought every car guy knew that one. I didn't wait 2 years I saw this video last night a read a funny exchange with you talking out of your ass. When in reality the L71 and L72 made about 450 gross hp which is about what the LS1 makes. Your absurd claim that is made 550 which is what a professionally tuned and blueprinted L88 might make was over the top. More disturbing is it perpetuates the myth of established facts about the power the older engines actually made. We could say the modern LT1 makes gross 542hp but it wont make the car run any faster. Lastly I didn't use a conjectured response, that's what you did in your original post. I quoted factual information, from the manufactures and multiple magazines who tested these engines to get the objective truth about what kind of power these cars made.
