Horsepower Rating for Older Chevy Engines

Does anyone know of any website or Chevrolet guru's that would know the horsepower rating of my motor
in my V6 Sammy. I know you guys are getting tired of hearing about this thing but I cant find out alot about
this thing. I found out today that it has a short shaft turbo 350 trans. The transmission shop dude told me
that the engine was probably a 3.8 out of an early 80's GM midsize. Does anyone have any idea of the
horsepower this engine might have? Or a website that tells the horsepower ratings of GM engines.
Let me know if you can help. By the way....I am looking for a Sammy T-case Thanks

Try your local library, they should have books in there to tell you everything you need to know about that enigine, and any other engine, tranny, transfer case, and rearend you can think of.

<font color=purple>If I had to take a wild stab in the dark, I'd guess ~120-140HP. Keep in mind that 350's of this era were only rated 160-185HP.</font color=purple>

Chilton automotive repair manuals list engine horse power. Can buy them at auto parts stores or borrow one from a library.
