Re: my 92 rs camaro

depends on where in the mid 80's it was built. if its pre 87 then (if im thinking right) the dip stick is on the other side. and the heads have the same design as your 90 model. plus if its pre 87 then its a flat tappet and your motor in your 90 is a roller motor.

if you are using the stock TBI system then thats another issue, it'll run lean because the programming was for an E code 305 and your stepping up to something that needs a bit more fueling.

Re: my 92 rs camaro

Re: my 92 rs camaro

I used to have a 92 RS. I dropped 92 350 out of a box van in it. I just used the intake, throttlebody and exhaust from the 305. Had to use the injectors from the 350 tho. But the car took it really well. I would suggest just doing the engine swap.

Re: my 92 rs camaro

The whole engine will swap over, assuming that your rebuilt engine is a one piece rear main seal engine from 1986-up. If it is a two piece rear main seal engine, you will need a different flex plate than what is on your 1992's 305. I assume your 305 is worn out or broken or something?? Because otherwise, just picking the pieces off your 350 will most likely not yield you any additional power. A 350 engine has a bigger combustion chamber than a 305 cylinder head, so most likely your compression ratio will drop, negating any benefit of the extra airflow from the bigger exhaust valve.

If you want to score a home run on the first go-around, first identify your 350 engine's complete specifications.
1) Find the year of manufacture: 1987 - 1992 is best for you.
2) Is it equipped with a hydraulic roller cam? I hope so!
3) What are the cam specifications? If stock, consider getting a computer friendly performance grind.
4) Cylinder heads? Stock, ported stock, or aftermarket?

Consider if you wish to retain the throttle body EFI. There's hosts of options out there now, ranging from high-buck standalone systems to retrofit LS1 computers and Holley stealthram PFI. These systems will give you more flexibility in terms of your available modifications to your engine.
