31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhaust on: August 16, 2013, 07:12:55 PM

For NC8, the Z28 headpipes were 2.25" in diameter EXCEPT where they attached to the exhaust manifolds. Again, that "Connection point" was 2" like the N10, and again, I don't know how far down it extended until it turned into 2.25". The short "over the axle" pipes were 2" after that first chambered section and then the tailpipes were also 2".

Anyone know if this was the same as the big block cars? I have a chambered exhaust 11C build car with 2" at the tips or should it be 2-1/4?

On duel exhaust small blocks including the SS 350 had the 2". The 302 Z/28 and big blocks had the 2-1/4"

All special high performance engines 396 and 427 engines had the 1111499 distributor with the 732CCW cams. This included the L78 and L72 like you mentioned, but I also believe it was also on the L89 aluminum head 396/375 HP engine. The 1111499 distributor was also used on the 396/350 HP L34 with AT.

Any way to tell if this valve is stuck? The more I think about it, I noticed that at the rear tips the exhaust flows better on the drivers side than passengers. So I am thinking mine might be stuck?

I have a '69 big block that was built in Nov. of '68 if that helps. I can take some pics and post when I get a chance.

You should try and get custom tags ED 9090 if you can  Wink

My L34 with Cast intake has them. I will post a photo when I can.

Thanks for the replies. Sorry about the typos I should proof read my posts better. A day later I found no less than 3 misspellings. Yes that Fathom Green does show the dirt almost as much as black but my GF says I am obsessive about keeping that car clean.  Wink

Happy 4th weekend eveyone. I bough a new fan a couple of months ago and finally had the time to install it. To see how well it performed vs. the old 4 blade, I got the SS out of the garage today for a quick detial and about a 12 mile cruise. About a year ago took the car to a local show, and driving throught the parking lot the temp gauge went about 3/4 full. Now with the 7 blade fan only a tick past 1/4 sitting in full traffic. Enjoy the photos. Next weekends task pressure wash the driveway.

It is your car do what you want and makes you happy. If your only concern is resale value then don't do it. Like the other posters said that unless you do it just like the factory including the sheetmetal modifications such as the correct holes in the firewall and cutouts in the rear panel for the backup lights.

I have ordered two times from them. Both small orders relative. The first order was missing a bolt and they sent me one free of charge, probably noting to them but did not they were fast in responding so I would say customer service ok. The second order was a 7 blade fan, clutch, and mounting hardware. I paid $139 for the clutch so that it would look original compared to the local parts store replacements. The clutch looked nothing like the original so I probably spent $100 I did not need to. I have not bought any of their higher dollar items, NOS parts or sheet metal.

The larger size tag for a 12A 124379N554655 car is correct, but that is not why I was able to ID it as a fake. I will not post that exact date of the tag size change, but if you read the CRG some more you might find the answer on why this one is an obvious fake.

probably costs a lot more, but if I would buy an IPC tribute it would be this one:

For the money it will drive, perform and look much better.

I am still learning new facts on these cars, I did not know a 12C ,1968 build date had an X  code, this must be one of the first .

X codes started in the second week of Dec. 1968 with the 12B build cars.
