    Good morning! I am new to the site. I was hoping you may lend me some expertise as you seem to be quite familiar with the 327 small block. I have a 1967 Camaro RS convertible with the 210 hp 327. I upgrade it to 4 barrel years ago with a holly 650 and headers. Looking to rebuilt it now with the goal of 375+ hp. Also want to keep it quite drive-able - I'm 50 and not looking to shatter the land speed record - just want some nice smooth power to play with. Looked at some of the top end kits like edelbrock 2298. and trickflow. Would love to hear opinion on these and any others you prefer and any lower end set up info you may inject that would match up to these or other kits well kits well. Will likely end up overboring the block slightly during the rebuild. All work will be done by top notch machine shop and mechanic. I really appreciate any time you have to give me your thoughts. Have a great day.

    Ok, mechanical ? for ya. I'm about to start building my 1st stroker motor and need some technical advice. What is the largest stroker crank you can get for a stock deck height 350 SBC and what length of rod on what type of piston? And do I have to use a particular type of rings? A lil advice is needed...tnx

    I just pushed the wrong button and sent an empty reply.

    Yes I agree, they seem to stop thinking about the GM factory roller set up when they reach as much cam as you can stuff into a TBI or TPI engine.

    Hi. I recently saw a post you responded to in regard to a 429 HP question. I have a question regarding the same engine. I have a '68 T-Bird with the 429. It's making some noise that sounds like lifter/pushrod or something? A buddy told me to drain the oil, fill with 6 quarts of Type F trans fluid, bring it to temp and drain. Then, fill it back with oil. I haven't done that yet, but was planning on it soon. First, should I? Second, what type of oil would you recommend for that motor? It's stock w/ a Holly 650. Fuel? I'm not super savvy with motors compared to most out here, and surely not considered a mechanic. Any help would be great. Thanks.
