    A four cylinder putting out 300 hp makes me wonder how horsepower is being measured nowadays. It used to be at the rear wheels. But I’m hearing it is now measured at the crank. I also wonder what RPMs a naturally aspirated 4 cylinder needs to be turning to produce 300 hp.

    Just the intake manifold design alone suggests that thought and money was put into this engine, but I agree that some solid evidence is needed to verify the HP claim in this case. I imagine the seller is approximating the 300hp (probably rounding up).

    That said, during the 1980s there was A LOT of backyard testing and custom work being done to Pontiac, Ford, and GM 4cyl engines in the PNW4WDA racing circuit, with the Chevy II being a popular engine to modify. Some folks were more successful than others, but ideas were being exchanged through out the association.

    The Canadian-based Rapid Transit, one of the fastest drag jeeps I personally ever saw race (also had a very unique sound), raced in the unlimited bracket and was powered by a Pontiac 4cyl.
