its fine if you want a 4000 to 7000 rpm power band, have a 4 speed (or th-350) with a 8" 4500 stall race converter and 4.88's-5.13's in your camaro and did some serious work on the cylinder heads.

Oh its going to be ""Spice -y-",, thats for sure.
Best check the springs and rockers for coil bind and full open lift clearance with .510" valve lift.
Before you fire it up.

Would run pretty strong with some mods, porting and upgrades and a nitrous system.

Do you know how to lock out the advance curve on your distributor and mark the balancer for 36deg BTDC?

The motor will not be happy with a stock distributor timing curve. You can fix that up.

its not going to be very happy with stock valve springs. Get some Summit high perf valve springs for it. Or Lunati 73943 springs. Its going to want to rev up high to make its power with that cam.

Can you power shift a 4 speed trans at 7000rpm? LOL
