    Budget 350

    I want to mention something to be careful of. I had a manifold on a build that was powdercoated. They blasted it before they coated it without flushing/cleaning the interior plenum and runners first. The sand is very fine and you need to rub your fingers on the surfaces to notice that there is...

    Opinions on rear disk brake question...

    I am installing a non-floating 4 piston rear caliper set up (Wilwood) on my Gen 2. Being that I will not have to service the rear calipers/pads more than possibly once in my lifetime.... Would you use a solid rear brake line versus welding a bracket to the axle tube and using short hoses?

    8.5 rear end cover question

    I am installing a TA Performance rear cover/girdle (1089). I am also using a transverse muffler in my 1970 Camaro. My factory assembly manual shows the rear axle cover very close to the muffler - approx. 1". I am concerned that the TA cover will be in contact with the muffler when I install...

    427 bbc build? Whats better? More cubes or better heads or vortex supercharger?

    Nothing worse than having an "over-headed" street car that does not accelerate as it should or by looking at the spec sheet. If more people understood that, I would not have won so many races back in the day!

    I have been trying to figure that out for years. What was the name of the plant?

    Z/28 history

    I'm fairly certain that this is not allowed/illegal. Even a police officer has to show a valid reason for obtaining this info.

    71 Camaro lower cowl a/c vs no a/c

    This is an A/C car. It looks like the A/C cars do not have the two holes for the upper dash vent. You could probably just cap them off?

    355 H.O. Engine Build HELP

    Dynamic is closer to 9.45. You do not use .050 when calculating DCR. I would also use a better piston to reduce deck clearance as sandlapper mentioned above.
