Sorry ElkyPete, but I don't believe that table. What is the source for those ratings? It's not stated. I don't put a lot of trust in facts and figures posted on the web if the source of the information isn't documented. My source is the 1983 Chevrolet Light Duty Truck Data Book dated September 1982 which states the following:

All Except California
********3.8L 229 2bbl V6****5.0L 305 4bbl V8****5.7L 350 Diesel V8**
NET HP...110hp @ 4000 rpm....145hp @ 4000 rpm....105hp @ 3200 rpm
NET Tq..190lb-ft @ 1600 rpm..240lb-ft @ 1600 rpm...200lb-ft @ 1600rpm

California Only
********3.8L 231 2bbl V6****5.0L 305 4bbl V8****5.7L 350 Diesel V8**
NET HP...110hp @ 3800 rpm....145hp @ 4000 rpm....105hp @ 3200 rpm
NET Tq..190lb-ft @ 1600 rpm..240lb-ft @ 1600 rpm...200lb-ft @ 1600 rpm

I also have a "Preliminary" version of the same book dated June 1982 which shows the same HP rating for the LG3 229. If anyone has a set of documented ratings more recent than September 1982 let's see it.

:mrgreen:
