Re: Hot cam kit
had that cam kit in my Nova with a set of vortec heads with a quadrajet and Performer intake. i built that motor way back in 2000, before i'd ever heard of anyone else building that particular head/cam combo. i always wanted to get a set of Fastburn heads for it..
it idled silky smooth at 800 rpm, and with a slight lope at 750. it had 17" of vacuum at idle, and off idle throttle response like a well tuned stock 350, but with a powerband that took off at around 3000 and went on until about 6500- but i could rev past 7000 like nothing.
it would easily knock down 17mpg with 3.70 gears and 26" tall tires with a T10 4 speed. i have no doubt that i could have gotten well over 20mpg if i had ever gotten that TKO500 trans i wanted to get.
you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.
wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
