i am about to give my original 350 (in my 69 ss camaro) to an engine guy so he can rebuild it for me to my specifications. The engine came as a 300 hp, turbo fire and still runs great with it's stock bores, and crank journals! Anyways, i am giving it to this engine/machine shop guy so he can rebuild it to my exact, wanted specifications. My question is...what is the lowest horse power/foot lbs. of torque that i can go to make my camaro burn some decent rubber? Also, what is the highest horse power/ft. lbs. of torque that can i go to have just as good reliability, durability, and long lasting-ness and obviously, burn more rubber? Is there a good middle-ground? You probably figured out that i like low end torque rather than top end (I want to burn some good rubber!) Also, you probably need to know that behind this engine i will have a muncie 4 speed, and 3.55 rear end ratio! thanks!
