Welcome ! What kind of help do you need? If I can help you I will but your demand is very vague to say the least . I am quite sure there are many others here that will help you . What is your question or problem? Alex

Re: DIRT TRACK CAR "Camero"

Great first post!

Welcome.

Just keep in mind, to get good information in response, you need to start with providing good information.

The important thing here is that you ask me what kind of car I've got. "I've got a BITCHIN' CAMARO"

Re: DIRT TRACK CAR "Camero"

what compression are you running?
back in the day I ran dirt with a 327 .060 over with 12:5:1 pistons and the heads cut .025
I always ran hot. 230-235. I used a 4 core Chrysler radiator with a 7 blade fan and tried every trick in the book until I went to race fuel. then I lost 20* of heat

Re: DIRT TRACK CAR "Camero"

Welcome to Team Camaro!

Did you change anything else? Larger tube headers = leaner mixture. Compression ratio? Combustion chamber shape/size/volume? Carb changes (mixture)? Timing?

67 Camaro: 454/TH400/4.10 12 bolt. Lots of options: PS/PDB/PW, tilt, tach, gauges and more. K-K + 797-Z...
