Just purchased a low mileage (71,000) 68 base model Camaro with the 250 six banger and powerglide last summer. I have already put in the larger 3/8 fuel line and sending unit, overhauled the front and rear suspension, put in the correct springs for a new small block. I am looking at building a 350 or 383.
I'm looking at 9.5 - 10:1 compression, but would like to get away with as high a ratio I can with pump gas. Also looking at a dual pattern cam with 224/234 duration at .050 - runs about 470 lift.
Any suggestions out there? Carb, header size, etc? I want to keep the car street drivable for those weekend family cruises, but am a motorhead at heart. Budget will be about $4 - 5,000 for motor and trans.
