Hello everyone, I'm PJ and new to the forum. A big thank you for this web site. I've been reading for awhile. Learning allot. I figured how to shoe horn that BIG motor in the Pontiac cross member. :cursing: , Ill be posting pics as I go. The car was road ready, everything was fine, Then i got to reading about cams, carbs, timing, more fun more power ect. So i took the car apart again, 3rd time. :banghead: So I've got a new cam, never installed one! A Quadrajet rebuild kit, new lifters, LS7 valve springs, Cloyes timing chain, had the heads machined to fit the springs, new comp keepers. new push rods .030" longer., just wanting to make the top end a little stronger. Thanks Dave Brode. Followed allot of his comments. Lined up with my research. Headman headers with a Caddy flange. 2.5 inch dual exhaust. ARP connecting rod bolts. Everything else is stock. I've hogged out the stock intake, the 2115 intake will hit the hood so its out of the question. I've got lots of pics on that. It might help others in the future. I'll have to work on the distributor, Which I know nothing about, (have read allot but never done any work on it). I'm going to try to smooth the heads out a little, It looks like there is a lot of meat in there that will help when removed. I've got a MSD ignition, the rev was set at 4600. I am not trying to win races. Just smash the gas and smile very big. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySHt9P5jyPs Please let me know what you think, the car has a 3.08 rear. not sure how that will effect the car when I am done.
