I am dropping a bone stock 5.0 from a 95 Gt into my car.
How much power can I get outta this shortblock?
The same as a earlier Block?

The same as any hydraulic roller 302 motor, you just have to be more careful with the tune due to the hyper pistons not being as forgiving as forged. As far as a number of what those blocks can handle, that seems to get debated all the damn time, my personal opinion is if you are worried about it breaking then stay around mid 500 fwhp, if you would not be butt hurt if it breaks then stay around mid 500 rwhp and if you just want to blow something up then as much as your combo can make.
