build recommended by F'Bird-88

a basic 350ci SBC short block with flat top pistons
+ 062 or 906 GM vortec heads, shaved 45 thou.
.015 steel shim headgasket (felpro)
Isky #205D valves springs minus the inner damper
Stock OEM vortec retainers, seals locks and rocker arms
Isky #201278 camshaft 278-278 .450" .450" lift 234-234@.050" 106 LSA
Edelbrock Performer RPM Manifold and 750cfm 4bbl carb
1-5/8" headers 2.5" dual exhaust.
This combo makes more power and torque than the Edelbrock RPM cam will make without needing vortec cylinder head machining modifications to accomodate the .488"-.510" valve lift of the Edelbrock RPM camshaft.
Should use a 10" high stall torque converter and 3.73 to 4.10 rear gearing for best results. (same as the rpm cam needs)
Isky #201288 will make even more top end power all with just .450" valve lift.
Degree the cam in on a 102-103 intake C/L for best results.

I would not go with an Eddelbroke, Q-jets when working properyly are an excelent carb.

These cars: Acadians, Canso and Beaumonts are from Canada. They were quite popular. I guess quite a few were exported.
A Canadian build Pontiac version of the Chevy II-Nova.

What makes this car 1 of 1500? Options? Right hand drive?
A bud and I used to drag race a 327 Acadian Wagon, back in the day.
