Welcome to the Forums. Does your car have T-tops? if so I would drop the project and find another body. A solid top camaro gives it a little more to work with. A T-top car with 1 hard launch will bend the body, if the T top is in, it`ll either crack it, or bend the body around it so bad it won`t go back in. If it`s a hard top, you`ll need to add subframe connectors. The T-5 is out, one good thrashing and you`ll be running over parts that used to be inside it. If you want the engine to be street driveable you can only go so big on the intake runner size of the heads. With the heads you have picked out they are more for 500 horsepower applications, if all you want is 300, we can do that on modest parts. If all your looking for is 300 to 350 horses so you can be apart of the fun with your friends at the drag strip, then we need to remap the combo. We at this site can tell you what you`ll need to run with them and have alot of fun doing it.
