60' 1.60s 330' 4.51 72mph
67 camaro all steel except hood
9" 4:30 gears, 29x12 slicks
powerglide 1.76 pro brake 8"vert with 5200 stall
aerospace discs all round

BBC 496
13:1 srp pistons
scat forged rotating assembly
brodix racerite oval port heads
edelbrock tunnel ram two 600 holleys
isky hyd. roller 284 294 @ 50 600 lift 110 lobe sep.





Thanks guys, cam67152

The tunnel ram is what is killing the short times. JMO

I finnaly got the car out on a full quarter on Aug 8.
I loosened up the front shocks and softened the rear and was rewarded will a 1.46 60ft
I think there is still a litte more in it. I hope to ditch that cam,carbs and intake go to a solid roller, victor and dominator for next year. This cam was out of steam well before the finish line.
I know this is a mismatch of parts, got such a awesome deal on this motor I would have paid as much for a good short block.

1.46 60ft
[email protected] 121.89mph with help from my crew chief

What rpm are you going thru the traps at? 1/4 ?
the gearset may be hurting you, How heavy is the car, Stall ??
We have a 2000 lb firebird that runs that gearset with a 565 in it.
same 430 rear.

You need better heads and a better cam. 13 to 1 compression and racerite oval port heads? Even if they are the biggest one's they're marginal for that size engine. A solid roller with a decent set of heads should make a nice difference. Personally I'd keep the t-ram and carbs, maybe upsize to 750's later on. A t-ram is the cheapest way to get 30-50 hp. Plus you get that super responsiveness you just can't get with a single carb.

6700 thru the traps (29"tire)
5200 stall
I haven't weighed the car yet, I'm thinking its around 3000lbs
