Which HAs More Horsepower, the 350 Chevy or the 351 Ford?

Save

For generations, car enthusiasts have prized powerful engines' horsepower, torque and under-the-hood rumble. Two of these motors---the Chevy Camaro's 350 and the Ford Mustang's 351---have gained reputations for supreme power over the years.

Chevy 350

  • Small-block Chevrolet V-8 engines have been around since 1955. Chevy introduced a 350-cubic-inch V-8 in 1967 to power the newly created Camaro. Later, the 350 found its way under the hood of the Nova, Chevelle and Malibu before Chevy also placed it in the Corvette. The Chevy 350 had an original horsepower rating of 295. However, according to "Hot Rod" magazine, the LT-1 version of this engine produced 330 horsepower.

Ford 351

  • The Cleveland V-8, a 351-cubic-inch engine, powered the 1971 Ford Mustang. That Boss 351 engine helped produce what was then the fastest Mustang, with horsepower rated at 330.

Tied

  • Based on 1971 data, both engines produced 330 horsepower. However, aftermarket modifications completed by owners may keep this argument open ended, with each side claiming performance superiority.
