Here are the results! For this dyno, we made 64 horsepower at 4800 RPMs and 82 lb-ft of torque at 3600 RPMs. Of course, by today's standards, this number is extremely low, but back in 1979, this was the norm since cars really only got up to 50-55 MPH on the highway. The dyno numbers of this iconic Fox Body have always been of interest to us and we couldn't be happier with the results.
