What is the Horsepower, Torque and Curb Weight of an 87' 318 longbed pickup. I'll take any specs on similiar models also.

Two bbl is 120 hp 250 tq
Four bbl is 150 hp 245 tq
According to Chiltons
Weight is around gross minus truck rating

Wow, so my V8 truck is rated at less power than my 4 cyl saturn? That sounds ridiculously inefficient.

The difference between gross weight and curb weight is the total passenger and cargo weight capacity of the vehicle. For example, a pickup truck with a curb weight of 4500 pounds might have a cargo capacity of 2000 pounds, meaning it can have a gross weight of 6500 pounds when fully loaded

ive been pissed about how little pwoer these trucks generate. I wonder if the 170 (for my 91) is right to the wheels, so it seems less then other cars measured at the flywheel.

Also it does seem to pull better then cars and some trucks with more advertised HP
