There should be a "DZ" on the engine ID pad.

My buddy has a DZ in a stock Z28 69 camaro. It is all top end, good rpm's, torque is not is finest attribute for sure... has to spin the tires to get a decent launch, but it is all stock w/ the solid cam & 373's. Neat motor, but needs low-end assistance (his car is 4spd). It is a dog until about 4500RPM then it gets it.

Whatever you do don't swap it for a 302sbf!!
That would ruin the property value of your house and you neighbors too!!!!
Heard of 'em but never messed with one.

the short stroke works well at high rpms. You must have a good set of heads, cam and carb to make something light go fast with a 302. Your .500 cam is way to small. Drag racing these 302's you want to turn them atleast 7500
