My "dyno queen" sounds less radical than the solid lifter 302 did. And the current 302....all be true said.....apples and oranges in comparison between the two  Grin
       at idle....

( same 302, different cam)

Gotta say again, really nice work on the headers, they look great.

The Pros know the numbers it's going to make. Have to know if the bottom end is strong enough. Not the worst thing hearing it fired and broken in on the dyno. Not to mention carb tuning.

Think you answered the question about Rollers:  all around improvement. Like I said , you did it correct.

LOL, got off topic....headers?

Great the car's all there ! I understand the mystic of an unrestored "survivor " After the initial wow factor ,still have a car where all the original sheet metal is slowly disintegrating. 20 years it'll look like baby swiss. Opinions vary ,and I truly respect everyone's, but I'll probably always be in the camp of restoring, or whatever the popular term is now. But yea ,even I'd drive it as is for a summer or two ! Certain "cool" factor.

I debated going with a roller in the Z but decided against having the heads cut for bigger springs. Currently it has a older Comp hydro which specs very close to the 30/30 (lift) without slamming the exhaust valves. Rhodes lifters and Harland sharp 1.5 roller rockers. Pleased with the way it ran in something else ,good vacuum, choppy idle. Nice pull to about 6800.

Know what your saying ; .620 .620 ,310 duration in the drag motor ( sbc) does not sound radical at idle. average 680hp@7200 on the dyno. 550ft.lbs. @ 5500. Dart 2.08 heads ,long runner Dart intake. oops....wrong site !
Custom ground hydro roller. HP/torque crosses at 5500 ,lines run very close, almost parallel, no "hit" tolerates pedaling towards the beams very well without falling flat. Cam was spec'd for the car/engine package via the builder. You did it correct firstgenaddict.


I talked to Dave Crower extensively when he custom designed a 302 solid roller for me a few years ago.
I gave him everything for the car, weight, rear ratio, trans ratios, tire height, compression ratio, rod length, bore, stroke, he said that the most important set of figures was flow numbers on the heads from .100 to .700 every .100... (if you have stock unported heads the numbers are available) told him we wanted a nice lick and it would be drag strip/street fun driven 1000 miles a year. He had free reign
It also required larger springs, bronze cam gear, cam button.
I hate telling people the lift as it sounds outrageous for a SB (.636 Gross, with the ramps designed to open the valve quick then on close drop it just shy of the seat quickly then gently let it down on the seats so they don't get pounded into the heads.)

Up at the shop this morning ,in the booth. Ran up the stencil kit. We reviewed some pics and discussed the stripe layout. He's making his own album and is going to burn off a copy for me. BTY here is a shot of all the rot cut out--guess where ?? Kid' back home from college, looks like we have some fun in the shop planned this summer.

All the more reason to stay the route your on Wink

I'm up by Cleveland, if you get on Crusin times website, you'll see multi events every weekend---you can cover a lot of ground with that car when she's done. With the next generation of hot rodders doing so much with inline engines ( everything old is new) I think cars like yours will fill a niche. It's all about performance + fuel economy. You really can go some original  (different)directions under the hood maintaining the numbers block and head. IMO.

I've posted my thoughts before on theses inline 6 banger cars...love them in this day and age. 19-22 mpg on low grade pump gas--lots of Cruise ins. Daily driver. I had an early Malibu in high school (no show car, pieces of sheet metal for floor boards) with a 6 and a glide. Few bucks in the tank would go a long way. I just think there is something cool about keeping the 6 in it !  Looks and Fuel economy.

You guys could offer up a shot of your car in front of the dealership--little promo stuff.
