Powerglide in 67 Camaro....... not much fun to drive, like driving in 2nd and 4th gears with a manual. I'm in Arizona, what would be a reasonable cost for a swap, cutting driveshaft , moving crossmember and calibrating setup and linkage etc?. I was quoted around $2000 for the job from a smaller local trans/repair shop . Is this reasonable? I've seen reman 700R4's for as little as $350 on Ebay.
Thanks for your help
Recently swapped Holley DP Performer RPM for Qjet and Performer 2101. This is on 327 461 heads SCR likely 9-9.5 to 1. MPG dropped in half around 5,6 city, expecting decent MPG from Qjet. Car is Camaro Convert, not heavy, PG trans, tall gears I think, even though I can't burn off the tires I should expect a good throttle response. Car hesitates and bogs opening the throttle at about 20MPH in st gear. What tuning experiments are there with Qjets. I'm sure economy and performance are sort of achievable.
First time to forum.........will be looking for help and mining knowledge of all things Camaro for starters.
First curiosity, took delivery of 67 Camaro Convertible in July in Mesa Az. Driving was OK, however, car bogged under load, does need tuning but.......
Have 327, ME code engine, formerly 210Hp I believe, now has edelbrock RPM performer and 750 Holley. If engine doesn't have head, cam, piston crank changes to this block, what's the best way to pep it up but maintain reliability and cruise enjoyment? At this point I'm intending on keeping the car as stock as possible, even though the donor engine was not a 275 HP matching unit. The original car is 6 cyl vin 123, with factory A/C, not working, another post, I would like to try and make this engine resemble L79 350 HP or so using probably modern equipt. like mild cam and heads if necessary, I know, I could do a 350 swap just as cheaply.
