Yeah it's mine. A true numbers matching SS.... except for the slapper bars, big and littles, Gabriel Hy-Jackers, tri-y headers and Realistic FM Converter.

Period correct "70's era" old school Chevrolet hot rod.

There is an "E" in Chevrolet but no "A". There are two "A's" in Camaro, but no "E".

I love that era, I built a 67 Firebird with the slapper bars and just the right amount of rear end lift to give the car that aggressive stance...and that was back in the era, I rolled the rear leafs, at that time I didn't trust air shocks...1974...still love the looks.

Beautiful job on the car...takes me back.
Thanks

back on track...
i have the ramjet 350 in my truck, i relocated the knock sensor from the water jacket to a hole over the oil filter for header clearance.
i had to drill and tap the hole for 1/4 npt (pipe thread), it has worked well for 15000 miles.
the ramjet manual recommended against relocating the knock sensor.
but the research i did back then indicated a lot of guys had done this same thing.

They must be some pretty tight headers to prevent the use of the knock sensor. Is there the same issue on the other side of the block because there is a drain plug opposite the knock sensor, maybe you could fit it there ?



Just about visible.

The motor I posted is in my 86 Camaro, I´m using Hedman Hedders.



Hedman Y pipe into a Flowmaster 3", single driver´s side outlet.



My knock sensor went with the computer when I chucked it out,
but there was plenty of space for it.
