oil and timing

Hope things work out for you out there in Texas.I would definately run the thicker synthetic in those warmer temps.I'm in Greer ,SC and I have a 383 I built lightly and put in a 1984 El Camino with a 700r4 tranny.Changing differentiel soon.It now has a 241 differential and turns only 2000 RPM at 80 miles per hour with my converter lock out switch engaged and will still spin the tires even built low compression (about 9.5 to 1) with a single Quadrajet I built(No Bogging either).Cam is Small .470 lift intake and 218 degrees at .050 on the intake valve and .470 lift Exaust and 228 degrees at .050 on the exhaust valve.Its the OLD TQ 40 Erson Cam.Happy Hot Rodding,Handy7rick
