326 Pontiacs are not 350 horse 327 chebbies. The 326 Pontiac, even with a multi thousand dollar rebuild, and a "mild" cam and headers is not a top end.. take to the redline engine. The 326 is a small bore small displacement modest torque producing engine that produces modest HP up to about 4500 rpm. the small bore, small ports, small valves, matching valve springs, and cam all combine to limit any kind of power up top. Many decades ago HO Racing built a highly modded 326 for Modifed Production class drag racing in a '65 Tempest. Might do a web search, TOTAL different animal, nothing streetable about it.
