I have my 327 looking fairly stock. But the 2 barrel intake has got to go. So it looks like I have to pass it off for a 350. How many different 350's were offered in the 69 Camaro? I presume one was a four barrel. Cast or Aluminum manifold and with which carb? Now the big favour... Can someone send me detailed pictures of a totally stock 350 engine compartment. I want to clone every detail. Thx in advance.

There were 3 350's offered in 69:
350/250 - this was a 2 bbl.
350/255 - a 4bbl.
350/300 - high compression 4 bbl.

Sorry I don't have any pics

I assume the 350/255 had a cast intake. Did the 350/300 have an aluminum intake? What carb? Does anyone have pictures of these stock applications?

Question

If I recall right, the 300hp/350 just had a cast-iron Q-Jet intake and stock old Q-Jet...

Isn't it the '69 version of the old L-48 motor that came out in '67??? pdq67

The info I have only lists two 350's. L-65 which was [email protected], [email protected], 9.0:1, 2 barrel. L-48 which was [email protected], [email protected], 10.25:1, 4 barrel. This had a cast iron intake and Q-jet. I had a '69 Nova SS with the same engine.

According to NHRA blueprint specs, the 255hp and the 300hp use the same intake.

The LM1 was a 69 - 350 as well with 255HP with Qjet and dual fuel lines. It shared the same block as the others too. Im not sure about intakes but the LM1 was only a 1969 engine offering.
I gots one

I took a look at your pictures. It does not look like a stock LM1. Is that an aluminum intake? Did it come with those valve covers? Could you get cowl induction on a 255hp motor? I am not being snarky, I just need to know. I really want pictures of a completely stock LM1 engine compartment.

Before I got the car, someone removed the intake and Qjet and put on something else for an intake that I cant see names or numbers and a Holley. So its not original on top. The valve covers are not original either Im told. Ive heard the cowl induction was an option but not sure on what cars. Perhaps Dan or Kurt from CRG will post on those questions too.
PaulM from Arizona has an LM1 set up, look for his posts and maybe email him too.

Question

It seems the '69 255hp/350 is a 9.0 to 1 CR. engine and ran a four barrel carb. setup and probably has the old -929 cam in it...

I can't tell what the valve sizes are so am not of much help with anymore info. (Don't know if it is just a two barrel, small valve motor with a four barrel on it or not??)...

Anybody know what type of pistons an LM1 ran b/c maybe a change of heads from say the 70, 72 or even the 76 cc ones, (with maybe four valve relief flat-top pistons), to a set of 64cc ones will make it a 10.25 to 1 CR. L-48 motor??
