1962 / 1963 = 102
1964 = 110

Keep in mind, that you also need to change the distributor, and timing setting. Also will need a complete exhaust system once the turbo goes out.

Junk... where did you get those numbers? Turbo's have low compression heads...

You are correct, I was thinking about the basic engines of those years, without taking into consideration the compression ratio.

Matt is correct, you'd only be looking at 80HP with a non-turbo distributor and exhaust.

A plus would be the lower HP rating would stress the engine less.
With the low stress, the engine would last forever.
