RE: 400HP back in da day.....

apparently HP was a made-up number back than.
I can think of several examples, besides your good one of the Ford 428SCJ.

426 Hemi? 425? Sure
302 Chevy Z-28 motor? More than whatever was advertised, that's for sure.

I wonder how much juice the L88 'Vette engine really had? or some of those monsters put out by the likes of Nickey Chevrolet? (sign of the 'backwards' K)

I'm sure some of the Ford stuff other than the 428 was also under reported. I think it was a GAME at that point.
Too much is never enough
