I used to have a 74 Nova.
400 small block, had a 650 cfm 4 barrel on it. Cammed out. Loved that thing.
The front end came off the ground when I hammered down on it. Got 8 maybe 10 mpg on it, it was great.

Oh man, when you'd unconstrain some of these motors in something like a boat, they were fantastic!
Put a Garret jet drive on a small boat and put a blown 350 with a supercharger on it, and it would go 0-60mph in about 3 seconds!! Growing up in Wyoming, on Flaming Gorge National Reservoir, we used to have a lot of hot-rod jet boats! People better be sitting on the bottom of the boat when you launched, because otherwise they'd go over the side.
You could only pull the best of skiers behind one of these boats. They'd either come right up, or they'd lose their grip on the rope! Fire would shoot out of the straight heater pipes when you shut the motor down. The superchargers would scream so loud it was deafening!

I thought you were going to say 440 as I was reading. Anyways looked up the 67 and did some reading. Pretty interesting. Tons of HP.
