A place for BWA'ers, wannabee's or just those with a 'passing' interest in straight line speed. (You see what we did there?)

Depends on a lot of different factors like heads, cam, exhaust, compression ratio etc.
You should see an easy 100 Bhp and up to maybe 175 bhp and still be usable

Sounds very similar - I tried to focus on low(er) down torque for a bus,

For example a 110 engle cam as apposed to the more higher rpm 120,
044 matched oval ports but only 40x35,
1 1/2 sidewinder instead of the larger one,
normal flywheel not the lighter one with a stage 1 obviously,

Lots of fun in a bus with a SA kit, plenty of low end - I can pull away in 2nd gear not that I do it often but its easy.
