What info about the car are you looking for? I had a '57 2Dr Sedan when I was younger with 347CI/Hydramatic. I added a 1956 factory 2x4 intake and a pair of AFB's. Only 1 carb was hooked up. Back in the day you pulled the hood to let all the hot rod guys in the area you had a fast car. I was good at faking them out (like my hot rod primer black, dog dish hub capped, dual corvair turbo exhaust, not a hemi "HEMI" Roadrunner with its transplanted & tired 318CI and automatic - no one would race me, faked 'em all. LOL). My first car was a 1956 Pontiac 4 Dr HT with 316CI/Hydramatic.Yes, I am a member there and did some posting with responses.

The Tri-Power was available on the "standard" 10.0 compression 270HP 347CI with Hydra-Matic transmission. The addition of the Tri-Power option increased the HP to 290HP. Was not available on the synchromesh transmission.Hi everyone. I might be closing in on a '57 StarChief, in the initial negotiations, and I'm trying to learn more and be as informed as I can. I'm trying to pick everyone's brain, not only here, but other sites also. My question is about the '57-347 cubic inch-270 hp engine. This would have a 4 barrel carb. I know a tripower setup was also offered as an option. Would anyone know what hp this tripower setup would be?? Other then the tripower, what else was done to the motor to make a hp increase?? There are alot of tripower intakes out there. Would anyone know what years might work on the '57 engine?? I tried to research this myself, but wasn't successful. Many thanks, Nicholas.
