Most of them are known through this site and others research. I think it is worth the money to try.

I would not ask anyone. Pictures of camaros are everywhere. If the picture is of YOUR car do what you want with it.

Agreed on the 327 275HP. I had one years ago and the power was surprising. When you kick in that big Quadrajet they really come alive.

I have an old Dixco myself. It still works fine. Came with a timing light in a set. The timing light was to dim for aging eyes so I did upgrade to an adjustable.

Seeing how there are 40k plus 69 Z,s and count rising daily a garnet red X33 with 17k miles is becoming common place. I hear that it still has it,s born with interior light bulb, wow.

What is left of them usually sticks to the firewall. If you have redone the firewall it is gone.

Looks like someone took the wire wheel on a bench grinder to it. I would say $50 bucks to worthless.

Your cam instructions will dictate the first half hour. After that if it is in the car I vary RPMs for awhile watching all the vitals. They say new ring materials don,t really need to "seat" but I still see a little blow by for a while.

One of the members here has a BB car. When he chimes in bet he knows. I have been leaning to "different" color combos lately myself which that car is.

Maybe it,s the guy with the late 69 with a 454.

Torque is a big thing on the street. I was at a seminar on big block heads and a guy asked "why did GM even make the peanut port  head for a big block? " Because small ports make torque, but they do not at high RPM.

 You probably want to post the cast date?

Thanks William, I have seen and had them but did not think that they were "correct". I kind of like them look wise.

I think the cam is part of it. But big valves, big carb, ect. means low air velocity and torque. An engine is like a vacuum pump and the 302 needs RPM to pull air. Standard rear was 373 but they really like 410,s.

I have posted before about most of the magazine articles of the day. Not just production numbers but simple things like "picture of one owner original Z with very few options, came with plain steel wheels " and article has pictures to prove it. I know that is what the writer was told but a qualified writer should know better. Many articles about all makes like that. I think they should get someone to proof read their stuff.
