circle track 350

Hey all I just learned the guy that built my 350 built it for circle track racing. Does anyone know what a circle track motor is built for?? high rpm? low end torque? Also it has a factory aluminum z-28 intake on it, would that intake be any good or should I just get an aftermarket intake? thanks for the help. Chris in kentucky

A circle track motor would be built for top end with a tight lobe center cam. Although if it was built for a "bomber" class might not be anything special about it. Only way to know is to tear it apart.

What intake is it, a high riser LT1 or just a regular low riser intake from early 80s?

You're motor could have anything in it. It might have been built for anything from a bomber to a sprint car. Whether it was built for a long track or a short track makes a difference also.
