    I am looking for the correct PCV for a 327 with aluminum trick flow heads with a 284/284 [email protected] cam. I thought i read a CV736c is what i need, but it comes back as not available anymore....would just any pcv for a early 70s camaro LT1 work fine? or what do you suggest?

    Hey man, I wanted to thank you for your insight on sbc heads, I'll probably be going with a set of ATK's, they sound like a good head, based on what you've told me about the pro-filers.

    Hey Eric, getting El Camino back this week , I had 4.10 Eaton posi with new ring and pinion...cost a arm and leg. I'm wanting to make it to test and tune at local drag strip but I don't want to hit it to hard until I put some frame support of some kind underneath .....I have seen the cal track ? and I have a QA1 book they have drag packages but for now I want to brace what is absolutely necessary before a trip down the track....the gears set me back over 2 grand so I was wondering where to start ......Thanks a ton for the help.....

    hi eric - yes i pretty much followed your advice on the stall :) but i dont think mentioning that is worth it, too many trolls about and frankly it doesnt really matter. Im still sure you know a few tons worth than me about this stuff anyway - so i still highly value your input! im only into this for a few recent years and the amount of knowledge to absorb is staggering - oneday ill hopefully be able to master building a semi decent car myself..

    thanks again for very valuable input despite how it worked out for me :)

    '68-79 Nova will be 60" wide wheel mount to wheel mount, '70-81 Camaro /Firebird will be 61". The 70-81 Camaro/Firebird and '72-79 Nova will be the 8.5" 10-bolt, a good rear with many of the Z28's having a 3.42 gear in them...but gears are really cheap for the 8.5" 10 bolt, only about $150. Z28's and Trans Ams are most common to find a factory Posi, Nova's not so much inless it is a '72-74 SS Nova
    The 67-69 Camaro and '68-71 Nova have the 8.2" 10-bolt, a much weaker rear that I don't recommend, but it is still stronger than the stock older style 8.2" drop-out type in the '55. The '66-67 Nova 12-bolt will be 58" wide, but is extremely hard to find anymore.

    Well it is going to be a street/strip (strip would be driving it to the track not on the track) truck so that small amount of extra HP is not going to be worth spending the money on. And the block has been punched but I don't know how far, so I'm thinking bout .060 if it ain't already there. The block feels like there's enough meat there to not have the overheating problem....thnx

    I've got a couple of good engine modeling programs, and could never get the added higher cost of the bigger than 383/385/388 common stroker to be worth the added $650-1200 expense for the 25-40 hp it might add. If it was for a race class where every last HP was needed to even be competitive it might be different, but for common street/strip or bracket race use it didn't pay to try to stretch them bigger than 388 (which is .060" over and 3.75" crank.)
