"Hecho en Mexico" went racing Sunday.

After pulling my '67 Camaro out of its year-long resting place and installing a Powertrax Lock-Right unit in the 8.2" 3.08 rear, I went to the Texas Motorplex for the last TMCC Shootout race of the year.

I had a blast, went 5 rounds, and runner-upped in Factory Muscle class (14.00-14.99). Went -.014 red in the final.

The little Hecho en Mexico 350 Goodwrench crate motor ran consistent 14.50's with a best of 14.47 @92.53mph.
This engine is completely stock internally with a 650DP Holley, Performer intake, 1 5/8" long tube headers, crappy dual exhaust, and a TH-350 with a stock torque converter. The car weighed 3380 with me in it (I'm 200lbs). 87 octane regular gas.

All passes were made leaving at 900 rpms and shifting at 4500rpms. The stock cam and valve springs peter out and quit pulling at 4700.Thru the traps about 3600!
These times, incidentally, were all made into a direct 20-25mph headwind which lasted all day and a DA of between 257ft. and 355ft (great air-I didn't jet up, though).

Next thing is to install the Voodoo 60101 cam, lifters, and Z-28 springs from Competition Products to see if I can get it to pull to 5500!

We had a blast and got to see and race some BEAUTIFUL Camaros, Chevelles, and many other fine examples from the "other" marques.
