    OK- need some advice here. For the cam above and this being a a 90% street car. My carb choice is going to be a Holley 770 Street Avenger.

    Option 1: Dual Plane

    Option 2:

    Option 3:

    *Used this site for pictures- not best pricing.
    I'm thinking option 1 or 2- Would one of these allow more clearance for the stock hood?

    option 1 or option 2 should work fine. Hard to tell from the pictures, but option may leave a little more room for the hood.

    Looks like our cams came the same day. Almost the same grind lol. Got mine installed and running yesterday, just need to finish the tune.

    Need some advice! I'm ready to put on my f body oil pan and new timing cover. Need to get the harmonic balancer on to help align plate cover to bolt everything up- which way should I go- f body balance or corvette? The engine again is a LY6 from an 08 Suburban HD truck so I can't use the balancer I have. I think most of my drive line stuff will need to be sold off. Everything on the accessory drive will play off which balancer I install and I need to make a decision. Opinions from those you you that have done it and happy with your decision?

    Thanks guys- I want to get this together this coming week so I can pull the 350 and get this in it's new home!

    Is there an f body kit I can buy that will have eveything I need for my car? Or can I get brackets to use the truck accessories? Not sure where for best pricing and ease.

    thx- Doug
