1986 Camaro came stock with a 305 carb. *
Its come a long way.
06-11-2002, 11:32 PM
Still got some work to do. *But now i got it tuned right where i want it. *As you can see everything looks a little red. *This is because i had to get a new hood because the old one was burned in a huge fire i had. *The guy spraying the new hood obvously didnt take the time to avoid spraying the engine.
Its making somewhere between 480 to 520 hp. * Not dynoed, told this by the engine builder who builds the engines for Cascar. *
It is a 5.8L 358ci stroker. *With highcompression pistons and bowtie heads. *Im running a Weiland Intake and holley 670 carb. *Runs real strong. *I beat a C5 corvette by 3 car lengths in a short race.
Now i got to dress it up with the crome. http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Oh and can anyone remeber the project 340 everest turbo sled i had in mind?

I got an order with summit right now for
1. Bowtie valve covers. (THe black ones with the red bowtie in the middle. *
2. Chrome water pump and altenator.
3. Chrome pullies.
I will then redu all the wiring and hoses so that there neat and organized. *Also got to get the spark plug wires off the v-covers and have them on the side with holders. *
I got a long way but i wanted to make sure it would hold up.
Your firebird looks awsome. *The pics are clear enough. *In my area i see a lot of camaros that are done up but firebirds that nice are rare. *
I also wish i could have one of those 2002 trans-ams with ram air. *They look awsome. *But i guess you cant own everything.

speaking of manly cars, here you got a 69 Charger that another friend owns.. 7.2 liters and drinking about 1 liter per 2 miles or something... you could guess who I thank for the last quote in my signature http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Im thinking of builing a 426 charger in the near future. *But not quite yet.
06-12-2002, 01:47 AM
he bought it a couple of years ago for about $4000, and has mainly been restoring the engine since then. he just finished putting in his new racing clutch last week.. quite annoying those things if you go cruising thru the city as we did on saturday... those clutches are almost like digital... either on or off, nothing in between, and the engine really doesnt seem to like the low rpm, at moments it looked like we had someone driving that had never driven a car before http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
the only thing that's wrong with it now is the skyport, but he already has a new roof around, just has to put it on. and the 3rd gear is kind of saying that it's tired so he's looking for a new gearbox for the right price. but spare parts are hard to find, there's only 68 chargers registered in the whole country here!
here's an under-the-hood pic

I could tell you that this charger is quite loud as well. we had to shout in the car to be able to hear each other http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
also we had to put a jacket over the gear changing stick (or whatever thats called in english) once we were on speed to stop it from making the irritating vibrating noise from #### http://www.snowmobileworld-s2.com/forums/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

If you want to talk in my Camaro you pull over shouting isnt going to work. *I mean loud. *
Loud as in every car alarm in a 500 foot radius goes off.

I make the money buy doing sales. *It is by far the easiest way to make cash. * I used to kill myself in auto mech and tool and die and i loved those jobs but then i got an oppertonity to do sales. *So i did it and its great. *
I also dont spend much on anything else. *I live fairly cheap, and i dont spend money on anything but sleding and cars. *
And thats the way i like it. *

the 440's are faster than the hemis and cheaper to build.the hemis spin tires to much.being an engine builder for local dirt trackers and drag racers,I want to know what combination you have to get 5.8 or 358 stroked.I have built many 358's and they were just .040 over 350(4 inch bore) block with stock 3.480 stroke.I build alot of 360 chevys that are the same 40 over 350 with a stroke of 3.500.I have an engine putting out 525 hp with an 850 dp holley that is 364 ci(350 .030 overbore,3 9/16 stroker crank).but my pride and joy is my 410 that hits the 767 hp mark on gaertes dyno in our sprint.the 950 is to much carb for a lil' 358 I dont care what heads are on it they will never flow that much air.I bet you would make more power with less carb.
06-16-2002, 11:53 PM
Dooman to be honest. *5.8 is a guess. *358 is accurate. *Im pretty sure it is like you said .040 over. *I didnt do the machining, I bought the engine from a builder. *
As for the carb. *I had the 950 holley before i had the engine. *So thats what i used. *I use it for the track because it is a double pumber and it does through tons of fuel down the engine. *This engine is reving at 7000rpm so it doesnt seem to have a problem with the extra gas. *
However it was way to big a carb for the street so i bought a 670 steet avenger and it runs great. *I dont really race the car so this is what i have on it most of the time. *
I also know a 440 is a better way to go but i like the 426. *Its not going to be a race car. *Im going to build a replica vanishing point car.
