Just thought that some might want to read this and coment: sorry it is not a Camero, but:
Just put an old 302 racing motor in to my "55" chevy, owned the car for 50 plus years, now a rat rod.
Anyways, the engine was a 283 bored to 4" with a 283 small journal forged steel crank, (Ol-skool way) 10.5 piston, 30/30 cam or better, solids, stock rockers, running 2x4's (carter carbs 350 to 500 cfms each, (no tags anymore) on an old Offenhouser intake, before China messed them up, 202 heads, headers, with a dual point mallory distributer, nonthing else would fit, with out redoing the fire wall, 411 limited slip rear end, with 60 series 14" tires , bullet mufflers, with 2 1/2" with 4' straight pipes tail pipes, Have not had it dyno as yet, but it seems like a grizzy bear.........My old Super Sun tack 0 to 8000 rpm is to small, pegs it easly...So would the 350 to 400 hp be a good guess for hp at 7500 R.P.M.
Thanks for looking,
