: 190 hp seems like a LOT for a car with Weber 40's (actually it's a LOT for any 2002!). Most people that post that kind of horsepower numbers use 45's with a 316+ cam and 11+:1 compression (or turbo or supercharging).
The cams not quite that big but compression is 12:1. I'm still getting blown away on the straights by cars with smaller displacement engines and the same or smaller carbs. I was lapped twice at Pocono by a mazda miata in a 19 lap race. I could stay with him in the infields but he would just walk away on the straights. The carbs are probably 10 years old thats why I asked about the cleaning.
