hi, i just bought a 86 fleetwood brogham for 500 bucks and it has no power. It has a 5.0 with 86,000 on it it probably needs a tune up but will it always be on the weak side?

Well it's rated at 140hp / 255 torque, and it's nearly 4000 pounds. So you can't expect it to be a speed demon.

actually the empty weight is 4500lbs, but add a full tank of gas, 2 people and some other crap and it's over 5000lbs.....and yeah, the 307 has no power, best thing to do is get a 350 or LT1, build it up, drop it in and have fun.
