I would let you take her down the track Avery.Originally Posted by lookingaround
I ALSO HAD A 65 MALIBU SS , GREAT CAR HAD IT 14 YRS. WHITE WITH BLACK INSIDE . DROVE IT TO HIGH SCHOOL , AND AFTER AWHILE I GOT CRAZY OVER DRAG RACING AND COULDNT CUT IT UP SO AFTER I BOUGHT THE CAMARO I SOLD IT . THE GUY PUT IT BACK TO ORIGINAL CONDITION.
I just got to hear the motor test fire.
If it dyno's like it sounded, I will be one happy camper.
Will have more info later tonight.
The motor is set to ship tomorrow and at my installer by Wednesday! 8)
Dyno results are in...
The peak hp was 461.8 @ 6000
The peak tq was 484.0 @ 4300
Tq was above 400 before 3000 and continued over 400 throughout.
Hp was over 400 from 4400 on.
ohhh yeah you will have plenty of fun out of that motor..it makes almost the same numbers as my wifes MILD 406..with 520 lift cam......her car will run 7.40's in the 1/8th..with MT ET Streets 28x10's with a 4.56 gear thru the mufflers at 3300lbs with me driving and i am 220lbs......this is also foot braking..
if we drpped the muffflers put on a pair of 10 inch slicks and a transbreak ..it will run some 7 teens......
you can bet your car will run just as good but a little more forgiving on the street with your 3.70 gear......her gear is a little much for the street with those short tires...
Carl your car will handle all these younger boys store bought mustangs etc,.. on the street..i have always said that a true 500 hp motor is a STOUT motor....
good luck.....by the way what kind of tires will you run..they make some good street drag raidals now..
later brian..also i cannot find your ad in show off..help me here a little..
