Engine Performance

Names Aaron, Im about to be purchasing a Camaro next weekend and dropping everything out and building it myself mainly just engine and tranny. First of all im dropping a 454 biggie in it and its an 85 camaro. Im wanting to get a supercharger thrown on it and i was wondering, it being a big block built for that power when i throw a supercharge on it will i have to beef up the cam, rods, ext. Second of all im also looking for a great tranny for the 454 to be able to handle the hp im hoping to get out of it. Any Suggestions? Last but not least, iv worked on alot of newer cars and know my was around the engine pretty well but older ones im not so sure, is there any other way to get the max hp im looking for out of this engine besides the supercharger. I just need specific details and suggestions

Re: Engine Performance

1st i assume your gonna put a K member in it and remove the towers for the bbc to fit-
2nd if you decide the supercharger route--it probably get exspensive--would use lunati
rods and a good crank plus supercharger pistons--a nice set of heads and roller cam might do with alittle juice--strictly drag car, i would use a glide for a streetable car -i would go th400

Re: Engine Performance

mine is a 468 strictly drag--makes 710hp 663lbs tq--12.7 comp -budget pro comp heads
with alots of work ferrera valves manley rods and all the extras -700lift roller---1000hp on nos---u can make more but a 496 would get u further for the money--gotta think what u gonna do for rearend--i sold a 85 camaro street strip car a year ago with 355 with 550hp--the rearend only went 2 runs before chunking pieces out the inspection cover--8.2 wont take alot
