New guy from Texas

I've only been on here for a day but I've gotten some great information for a project I'm starting this winter. This site is great.

A little about myself, my name is James, I'm in the Air Force (5 and a half years in now) and I'm deployed at the moment. Back home I have a 1967 Camaro SS with a 383 stroker, th350, DSE suspension upgrades, and a few other odds and ends. It will soon be upgraded to a 572 with a th400, Moser 12 bolt, and disc brakes all the way around. It's going to be a great winter project. I'm stationed up north where it is impossible to drive it in the winter, so I might as well do some major work to it. I will post pics of my car soon!

Welcome, James.
Thank you and your family for the time in the service.

With the torque on tap of the 572, you might think of tying the subframe to the body and use motor plates.
In addition, add a min 6-pt rollbar to triangulate the support to keep twist to a minimum.
Your body will show cracks later in life.

Subframe connectors are definitely on my shopping list for this project. I will probably put a cage in it eventually. It's not going to see much track time anyway. Not because I don't want to, but because the local track is only open a few months out of the year, and only a handful of those days out of the whole summer are reserved for street cars. The main goal is for it to be a fun street car with a HUGE engine. Oh and irritating the neighbors!
