I have a stripped V8 Camero body. I want to know what heater set-up to use. The firewall has a small opening in it. What is the difference between a big block and a small block heater core opening.

Hi sparkies, first, can I ask you, does this car have any front coil springs in it? Or a front clip? Or any glass? Rust in the trunk? No dash? Curious because of your location and a 68 that went that way not too long ago.

I believe this is correct, I haven't seen a first gen Camaro firewall in a couple months but the small block cars have the hoses go through to the left (motor side) of the box.

Hi Sparkies, The big block heater core pokes out in about the middle of the heater box in the engine compartment, and the small block comes out right behind the passenger side valve cover. I hpoe this helps.Nick

The a/c cars had a square opening in the firewall with a round hole above the plemnum for the a/c harness, heat only holes were rectanglar with rounded outside corners. hope this helps.
