    Hi everyone, I have a 1968 C50 with a 366 ID in it. I am looking to find out if the firing order is the basic Chevy big block firing order. Or if it is different due to the crank spinning clock wise and the cam spinning counter clockwise. Two gears. Nothing inbetween on the front of the block...

    Hey guys, I'm building a turbocharged 454. anybody know what a good intake for it will be? It's technically a street/strip kind of car, but I really just floor it every chance I get. My friends are telling me to get an edelbrock performer rpm. What do you guys think?

    Hello, My cars currently situated with a one tire fire, which just ain't cutting it since i've dropped in a 454 with a few upgrades. The one legger was bearable when I had a 327, I would just throw some sandbags in the bed and I was good to go. Now not so much. With the help of big gear head I...

    Hi All, :welcome: Quick question: when I put the transmission into drive and take my foot off the brake pedal, the truck never moves forward under its own power. It takes a bit of pressing the accelerator pedal to get it going, but I assume that's just because it is a big heavy vehicle. Is...

    I have a '85 K5 that came with a 305 and a 700r4 with 4x4. I recently picked up a 350 from a '94 blazer/suburban/Yukon, etc. (Dont know which exactly, got that from the casting numbers). The new 94 engine came with a TBI, instead of the 4bbl I have on the 305, so it has a pcm. I want to keep...

    Hey guys! This is my first post I am new to the forum. I recently received a 1986 c7000 grain truck with a 366 big block. I pulled the engine with plans to put in a 1986 Buick Regal. I am troubled on finding information on a flex plate and a trans adapter to a 700r4 transmission as there is...

    Hi! I'm looking for some advice about my engine. I don't know as much as I would like to about this engine, but here is what I do know: it is a 327 out of either a '69 Camaro, or early-mid 60s El Camino. Currently in a '70 El Camino. Sportsman II heads. Definitely not stock cam, but I don't have...

    Hi All, My 1994 Chevy 1500 failed the California smog test, and I was wondering if the knowledgeable folks here could shed a little more light on what to do based on the results. The truck is a 350 TBI with auto transmission. The truck got a full tune up about two years ago and it passed...

    I plan on home porting my heads and intake on my 350 sbc. I have been told that i have picked out a bad cam for my setup (which is likely because i was like 17). I was wondering if anyone could give me a good suggestion for a flat tappet cam from summit. I am running this setup in my 3rd gen...
