how many guys on here with 28 Pantera have twin sbc? Whatís your combos, how fast are you running, etc? Building twin 383s for mine right now and wondering how sheíll run.

I only remember one guy on ever on OSO (Angel???) having a 28 with twin SBC's.
I think twin 400+hp SBC's would be the perfect weight and power for a 28.

I thought there was the one in England, and another in the islands somewhere? 6.2s?

I have two 383s going in that should be a little over 400hp and 450tq, hoping itíll at least run 70mph and be reliable. I guess time will tell.

Really? Wouldnt it be closer to 75 or 78? What does a 28 weigh?

that would be amazing if it did, but I kinda doubt it. I haven't weight it yet, but I assume 6000-6300lbs maybe. That's why I'm posting to see if someone has built something similar.

It should run at least 75mph with that power. Twin 502mag 28's will run about 80.

None of the stepped 28's have twins
