Still looking for my first camaro. Not looking for numbers matching vehicle, can't write a check that big. Anyways, came across a 69 camaro with this engine. Don't know a lot other than GM only made 430. Anything I should be aware of with this engine? It's paired with a TH400/TCI transmission.

Nice engine.    If I remember correctly the ZZ430 is a ZZ4 with a "Hot Cam" and fast burn heads.   I'm sure there are other differences but I think these were the biggest differences.   

69 Camaro Z10
72 GMC C1500
79 Mazda RX7
04 Mazda RX8
06 Corvette Z06
10 BMW 650i

As I recall they were a limited edition numbered series of 430 engines.  The engines all came with a jacket for the owner which corresponded to the number of the engine.  The engines were pretty stout and featured the, then new, fast burn heads which if I recall should have a "D" shaped exhaust port.  Should be a good strong Camaro!
