Re: New Member With 71 Camaro

Welcome, Kyle.
Nice list and reads like a project for the moment. Good luck in finishing.
I suggest do a search for horsepower calculator, maybe Wilson Racing(?), and plug in the values and read the results.
Also, I believe the same site has qtr mile ET estimator if you know the weight of the Camaro.
Some members here will suggest changing to a THM400 - heavy duty vice THN350 - light duty.
I suggest going to a PG with a 1.82:1 or 1.98:1 gear ratio.
If you chose a 1.82, it comes from an L6 engine and swap piston from a V8 PG for adding an extra disc.
1.98 is aftermarket ratio. ATI maybe?

Also, you might start a project build thread.
