How much Hp?


Can someone give me a good estimate on how much horse power. The build is a 196 clone, mod-2 cam, .640 carb jetted 39hi/28low, head decked .050, stock valves, 22lb springs, and .930 header no muffler. My friend wants to use this motor with torque converter on a buggy( 450-500lbs with driver) . I,m wondering if this motor would be strong enough. Thx


The mod2 has a lot of duration and overlap. It shines at extreme rpm and WOT. Might need to lighten up the driver weights to alow the engine to run at that rpm. That's why I would go with a 265cm cam for a broader hp curve on non racing engines for yard karts and mini bikes.
