    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.

    You recently gave me a post for overheating issues which was very helpful. I still need to hook up my bypass tube since i dont have a heater core installed. It is now cooling down at stop lights but still getting up to 230. I think my header crankcase evacuation system is pushing exhaust back into my valve covers since I put mufflers on the exhaust system and I am unable to find check valves any in the lines. If i remove this should i just use breathers or should I hook up a PCV to the carb? thanks

    I'm Bodie Byles, The one who you called a dumb *** and needed mental help. I have a 67 Camaro street car that I plan on driving on the street, I have a Bill Mittchell SBC 454 with a set a CNCed and flowed heads in it, with a full Roller Cam set up. It Dynoed 707hp at 6800 Rpm. It has 8:7:1 compression. I have a ProCharger F2 supercharger I'm going to install on it. I thought with all your Knowledge you could tell me what kinda Transmission you would run in it? I have a buildt 4L85E Or a Turbo 400 built with a reverse valve body. I have a Coan Built convertern for the 400; I would have to get one for the 4L85E I'm just going to drive it around town and Maybe to the track . Can you think of anything stronger I could put in it? It should be making 1200-1300 hp on pump gas. You seem very Knowledgeble and I wanted your opinon.
