Post How much power out of my 1976 280 should I expect?

Hello BW,
I am wondering just how much power I should expect out of my 1976 280 (2.8L v6 motor)? Seems as if I am sluggish from the start but the car picks up as it should after a few seconds (5-10)....Is it normal to have to wait until my engine warms to properly drive away without stalling or sputtering? I have the stock Solex cab and as I said before it runs fine once it's warm.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
