EN­GINE SPEED (RPM)

Hot Rod - - Pitstop -

Not street-friendly: The 347 only re­ally got rolling over 5,000 rpm. Torque and rpm are still ris­ing af­ter they cross­over at 5,252 rpm. Un­usu­ally, both torque and power peaks—1,239.3 lb-ft and 2,076.6 hp, re­spec­tively—oc­cur at the same 8,800 rpm; trac­tion and driv­e­line is­sues at the time forced Dut­tweiler to re­strict the en­gine from reach­ing its full 38-psi boost be­low 8,500!
