    Checking back in

    Just checking back in to say hey. Been on a bit of a leave of absence the past few years. Had a kid, went through a career change, didn’t put a lot of time into the camaro (and none in the forum) but I’m finally getting back around to it. Good to be back. PS: Did they happen to make a repop...

    grinding/growling noise under hood 95 Z71

    My daily driver is a 1995 Chevy Silverado Z71 5.7L TBI. The alternator took a crap last weekend so I replaced it. While I was there, I replaced the idler pulley and the tensioner pulley. I also looked at the belt and it didn't appear cracked anywhere. The truck runs great and the new...

    I just swapped vortec heads onto my 355. I was running junk 305 heads. I've also been running MSD Atomic EFI for several months now with no issues. After the head swap the car fired up on the second try and runs like a top, but I noticed the headers glowing at night and I can hear fuel...

    Need help on a 1995 Z71

    I have a 1995 Z71 as my DD. 16 bolt trans pan. I cranked it this morning and noticed the tach and speedo weren't working, and the "check gauges" light was on. The engine runs just fine but the transmission isn't shifting right. All of the other gauges are working properly. I tried replacing...

    Help me pick a roller cam

    I'm thinking about going roller in my 355. I enjoy my engine and it runs well, but I have to admit it's pretty slow, and I'd like to squeeze some more power out of it. I don't have a huge budget, so aluminum heads are out for the time being, but I figured going roller would add some good...

    Found a 6.0 on craigslist. QUESTIONS

    I have been steadily saving to put EFI on my 355, but I just found a 6.0 w/ trans, computer, manifolds, and pulleys for $900 out of a 2002 truck. Now for the big questions. Would this be the correct engine and trans to go LS in my 78? I know I'd have to mod the tunnel and get the computer...

    How do these synchronizers and clutch look?

    How do these look? The clutch was brand new and so were the pressure plate and flywheel when I installed them about 500 miles ago. The clutch is a centerforce rated for high horsepower. The surfaces of the flywheel and pressure plate both looked brand new.

    Looks like the 4spd is coming out... need opinions

    Well, I've finally had enough.. I've been trying to postpone dropping the trans (again :mad: ) but the synchros are starting to grind pretty bad now (BW ST10). I just put a brand new Centerforce clutch (rated for 500hp) in it last year so I'm kinda ticked at myself for not going through the...
