Old Chevrolet engineering dyno test show 575@6800rpm for the ZL-1. Mine was right on that figure.


Thanks for the dyno chart.You posted as I was typing.lol
I had thought the L88/ZL1 to be in that ballpark.

Check out a more modern ZL1 dyno test on the engine from #26:

With today's 0 weight racing oils and the latest piston ring technology Camaro Hi-Performance is seeing 550hp+ on their ZL1 rebuilds.

L-88 AND ZL-1 did not use vacuum advance, only mechanical, as they were intended to be strickly race cars. So the stock vacuum can is factory sealed. These motors run much better with an adjustable vacuum can and manifold vacuum advance, as these motors love LOTS of advance due to the high piston dome.

That vacuum can operates the wiper door that covers the windshield wipers and linkage on '68-'72 Corvettes.

So would you recommend a Vac Distributor for "Hot" street use? I was going to go with a Small cap MSD with mech advance.Even thought the L88 doesnt have much vacuum, I think I can get things to work ok by tying the systems into the RS Vac tank.

12.5:1 compression ?

If you plan to run a MSD checkout p/n MSD Programmable Digital 6AL-2 Ignition Boxes 6530. More to chose from, but appears a nice street/strip unit. Very popular with the bracket racers around here--can take some timing out at shift points ,launch etc.  based on track conditions. Very user friendly with laptop. One of my buddies chases points ,and installed the next unit up last season. Loves it. He has a 900+ HP BB which puts his Camaro in the high 8's ( and on the rear bumper once) His daughter runs the car around a mid 9 dial. If I was going a different path with my Z , A MSD set up would be my ignition system of choice for it.  Proven in our Gasser. Probably more a TC response, but thought I'd add.

Racing aside, I see the benefits of integrating some modern technology into these older race bred engines. Drags are easy, make a pass ,back to the trailer to cool off. Street is far more demanding. Plus the benefits of soft hit rev limiters.....when Shut Down comes through the speakers, and your right foot gets a little heavy Grin

The vacuum can still has the advance rod, although it does not move, the rod still needs to hold the advance plate in position and limit it.

Thanks for the explanation. I figured they would just lock the breaker plate with a screw.
