I'm waist deep in small blocks. all of them are stock except one though. The warmed up one is your basic .030 over forged piston,steel crank,dart headed 355.I'll try to get pics up of the big block in the car. I got it running 1 week before the woodward dream cruise.It was a busy week.I spray bombed the camaro with gray primer to make it one color and drove it down. ;D I took it to the track and got a 12.76 at the end of the day. I know that the car has a lot more left in it. I believe it needs ALOT more cam than it currently has in it.

I hope your camaro has a decent rearend in it. A bbc will make lots of oily shiny pieces out of a 7.5. 8)
