Joker, this is my kind of thread! Has me thinking I should build the old 327 I took out of the car this winter.

Vinnie, I was actually looking at some 180 AFR's. 195's wouldn't be too big in a 327 in this big of a car?

I talked one fella into using 210 AFRs user name llMurphy?,he built the engine himself and made over 500 hp with a mild cammed 383
the 327 would hit hard between 35n65
Like I said,if you wanted to go 14s,you could slow it down

I love a 327.The 1 I had in my old truck left an impression on me forever.I still have the heads.I called myself rebuilding it.It was the 1st time I used the clips for free floaters & I guess I didn't get 1 installed rite.A wristpin backed out & trashed a cylinder.Young n Dumb.LOL.It was already bored .040,so,I bought a 350 short block.It was a true L79 block & heads.I didn't have the original intake & manifolds.

I bet if you asked Richard real nice,when you decide for sure you want to build a 327,he could run a sim??? It might surprise you how well they perform with good heads and cam. Even Fbird88 would be impressed.

It would be a lot more powerful tho if I could get Arless to run it thru his program. OOPSY !!! Pleeze forgive me !!! LOL.Really tho,I know the 327 is a really versatile engine.It seems to perform well @ all levels.

My cam I use bigger rockers on the intake side.
as tech tells everyone (that listens)the intake closing time is the most important part of choosing the cam
The same engine will usually tolerate a little more exhaust duration so,,,
maximize the intake closing time and use bigger ratio rockers,,,this is the biggest cam you can run(or bigger than what you might have picked) The exhaust valve staying open longer gives time for exhaust like a bigger cam,no need to increase rocker ratio.
Poor wording,sorry.

That 383 made all that power with a mild cam (roller)and
a 950 cfm hp custom built.He bolted the thing on and only had minor tuning to do

I may just be dreaming,but,I'm dreaming EFI on this build.I have priced out individual components for the edelbrock Pro Flow XT.It looks doable & within a decent price if it works out like I have it planned.The manifold itself is only $400.I'll need a pcm for trans control anyway.This would also let me run a knock sensor.I think I canput the whole EFI together for $1100 to $1200 if I pick the rite injectors the 1st time.That'll give me an available 1000 cfm.
