I just got a 308 and wanted to know how much power people get with carby 308 and no forced induction?

i really i want to keep my 308 but i can get an ls1 for a reasonable price and its looking tempting.
It all comes down to budget and what you want the car for. You can stroke it, build a high comp set up, with -9 heads and a big solid roller and have it just shy of 600hp. and thats NA. but your talkn a 20k build.

get yourself the ls1 and slide in a nice cam, or bolt on a turbo or supercharger to the ls1 and say hello to **** loads of power, dont bother building the 308 its going to cost u endless amounts of money to buy everything for it , if u get the ls1 its got everything already

**** i can't believe im actually going to say this................. sell it and get the ls1. my cousin just finished building a sub 12 second 5litre......... well now its a 355 but i think the build cost came to just under 10gs (cant remember if that includes his trans, don't think it did) but yeah buy the ls1 for 5 gs spend another 5gs and your going to have something that really moves.

for some reason i just got a proplem with putting a EFI engine in an old car, one of my mates offered me a 454 big block chev for 2g (came out of a C10 or somthing like that) but that needs some major rebuilding for. Im considering that but then i would need to get it engineered
