Hello everyone, my name is carlos and i currently reside in san diego, california. i am currently serving in the United States Navy as an aviation machinist mate, i work on MH-60R helicopters as a mechanic. as stated i am totally new to camaro's and domestic cars for that matter, so bare with me. i recently aquired a 1969 SS camaro with an RS front i believe i am the third owner, original owner was my ex gf grandfather, than her father, now me. it has been sitting for 21 years in avondale, arizona, so just has minimal surface rust. from what i can see it has a muncie 4 speed, 350ci small block, long tube headers, hurst shifter and thats about it. i recently went to a hot rod swap meet here in socal and picked up the following: holley 750cfm double pumper carburetor, edelbrock victor jr intake manifold, and a carburetor spacer just to start with.
im really glad to join the forums in hopes of learning many things about my camaro and the popular 350, as all i've ever worked on were imports, mainly 80's 300zx's and nissan 240sx's, but i appreciate all fine makes and models.
my plans for the 69 camaro well i want a streetable 400whp car, it's going to be a long term build so i am no hurry and want to do it right the first time, being i got air and fuel components for the most part out of the way i want to now move onto the valvetrain cam and heads, but i have no idea what setup to go with, which brings me here
again, really glad to be a part of these forums, pictures coming soon. thanks everyone and i apologize for the life story
