It's been quite a while since I visited Hotrodders. It's funny how things never seem to change. Guys are still jumping in neck deep without learning to swim first!

Why would you butcher the car to fit a oil pan. make the oil pan fit the car.

if you want a car your wife will like, get a Chevelle convertible. This is not a wifey cruiser car and nothing you can do will change that.
If you want a LS motor with a 6 speed just go buy a new 2013 Vette convertible. You wife will like that one.

Did you ever solve the crank trigger/ignition box issues?

Converting this car to a EFi system is a possibility too but I would change out the cam at the same time.
A EFI system that bolts on to the intake would keep the car looking all "road race"
But really all you need is a proper built (750HP based) carb and the street cam.
(Keep all the old stuff) You need not throow out the baby with the bath water, to fix this car.
Ignition issue fixed. The pickups werent phased properly. The plenum on this car is definitely custom and has alot of porting work done to it. Was thinking of a divided plenum like some suggested.

So smaller cam, with say a 410 gear in the rear and a fuel injection set up with a vacuum advance distributor would make it more streetable? Wouldnt the 410's make it rev higher than it does now?

I measured at the top opening and got .450 am I supposed to be measuring the outside diameter or inside diameter?

Well the very front of the oil pan on a regular oil pan just hits the steering rack. The rack would have to be lowered about 3/4". I wouldn't call that butchering the car really. The front of the dry sump oil pan is flat, and stepped to clear.

Then Lunati Cams custom makes this custom roller camshaft to UD Harolds pro-priority camshaft specs, just for you.
You cannot buy this camshaft from a cam catalog.

if you are not interested there is no point in giveing you the Contact information.

This camshaft has a lot less duration and valve overlap but serious valve lift. It is a street proven design
tested over 5 years in a serious street motor, very similar to yours. It will "drive" a hell of a lot better. and Go like hell.

He ("UD Harold") Harold Brookshire may even want to tweek the exact cam specs a bit, just for you.
Leave that up to him.

You got a good racing cam in your car now.. Now you need the right great custom grind "street cam".
Absolutely interested. PM me his contact info. I plan on swapping the cam out eventually. I like the way this motor sounds and pulls, so if I would drive better, That would be awesome. Im assuming I can reuse all of my current driveline stuff?

Definitely looking into this over the winter. I can tell you one thing, this motor makes some power...My Centerforce clutch is slipping in 3rd gear at 5000 rpms...Anyone have any recommendations for a nice streetable twin disc or something that will handle 600-700hp???

Then something is not right..I smelled the burning clutch and rpms climbed rapidly without the car moving faster. Can i be making that much TQ? They said this clutch was good for 550 TQ. Can the throwout bearing be releasing it just a bit?

And FWIW I may just deal with the drivability, cause when I open this motor up, OMG the sound!!!!

Clutches need to be broken in properly, just like brakes. And adjusted correctly. And no oil, etc. on the friction surfaces from the engine or tranny or even from over lubing the pilot.

I do have s light oil leak Im chasing down...Now that I think about it, oil could be blowing backwards and getting on it.. Im assuming this requires removing the clutch and cleaning the surface really good.

As far as break in, it said no hard launches for 500 miles. I havent launched the car as of yet. This was 3rd gear slippage.
