I need help (I’m sure in more ways than one!)
I am in the process of building a “hot rod / rat rod / Frankenstein” driver car that is a little different than many other cars in my town. I am bolting 2 sbc engines together (end to end) and I am trying to build it on the cheap. Since Free is cheap, I obtained a couple of sbc 305in2 including Heads, intake manifolds, exhaust manifolds, water pumps, covers, pans, etc. In the attempt to match the engines, (and because I got a killer deal) I just bought 2 Bran new Lunati VooDoo cam and lifter sets (60101) for $25 each set (Don’t ask – Just the right place at the right time).
How does the Lunati VooDoo cam and lifter set (60101) affect the performance on a 305 sbc?
What kind of “daily driving” characteristics can I expect from the Lunati VooDoo cam and lifter set (60101) in a single 305 sbc?
What identifying marks can I find on the cylinder heads to see if the engines have a match set? (I do not know what the engines came out of)
How can I tell the year of the sbc 305 engines? More specifically, what is the difference between the 305 engines throughout the years (so I can really tell and understand what it is that I have)?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
