Jeff, the Chevelle, Orange Camaro, and Nova all have the original motors in them Admittedly, the last three years I was racing the Nova, I put together a different motor. Local GM dealer wanted to help me out so he gave me all the parts at cost to build it. Took two years to get it faster than the original motor, but I guess it just needed to loosen up, even then it only went a tenth faster. That's why I bought my white COPO Camaro. It did'nt have the original motor so it made the perfect car to race. Since I've put a ZL-1 in it....what a motor!!!! If you can afford it, leave the original on the stand!
