ok here goes again.... ok just wanted to say hello first my name is david and im glad to be a member of the forum.im new to rodding this is my first real rod been around them all my life but never really had one and dont know anything so im learning as i go. i have quite a few questions i hope yall can help . so here goes with what ive got ill try to list all the info i can to make it easier to answer. ok i got a 1977 camaro with a 454 t 350 tranny 373 or 383 gears not sure not sure on the stall either it feels like it has a small one though the cars weigh 3800 and some change is gonna be a vette stang eater and strip every now and then. ok i tore the motor apart due to a balancer bolt gone awol and wearing a groove in the snout of the crank. so i figured while i was there go crazy! ok here is what the motor has
stock 454 heds 119 cc chamber stainless valves an old school tarantula single plane intake a holley 850 double pumper 30 over trw pistons stock crank and rods and a 125 shot of nos . the car ran consistent 7 .20 in the 1/8 i saw four or five time slips . i guess thats pretty good for the specs not sure though like i said im new. the compression was 11 so he said the guy that built the motor said...thats neither here nor there just letting yall know the cam that was in the car is this one http://www.lunatipower.com/Product.aspx?id=2162&gid=290 it has hooker comp headers looks to be 2 inch tubes with 3 and a quarter main tube to the best of my measuring. it has an over size griffith alum rad with a little sqautty 14 inch fan that barely covered the whole rad which brings me to a question. the little time i drove it around it always ran 200 210 and over heated one time the guy thats building the motor said it wasnt pulling enough with that fan around 950 cfm since then but havent ran it yet ive gotton a twin 12 inch and the shroud covers the whole rad and supposed to pull 2850 cfm my engine guy said thats plenty of fan now it had a mech hv edelbrock water pump too i replaced it with a new one would the little single fan make it run hot thats my first question and does the set up he had sound odd in any way? do those sound like decent times any idea on hp numbers?? next ill post what ive ordered for the new monster eating right now lol

You posted this first in the Engine section, where I answered you. Now you have posted the same thing in the Hotrodding Basics section.

Sorry bout double posting I put the original in hot rodding basics. and then I saw the engine section and thought it would be better there so I just copied the whole question and pasted it there. I guess a mod can delete the question from the basics section. sorry
