Re: F2 427SBC '69 Camaro

Here's a buddy's 383 built on a Dart Iron Eagle block. Vortech S/C, air to water intercooler, Brodix heads and intake, Lemons custom headers, MoTeC M8000 engine management, 8 LSx coils..... In a 1997 30th Anniversary SS convertible.

1,350 HP at the flywheel. Car ran low 8's at 166+ MPH.

I'll delete this so it doesn't interfere with your thread.... just thought you might be interested. I'll try and post a vid of it in action.

Nice! Engine compartment is definitely tighter than my car. Post some video, don't worry about deleting.

Re: F2 427SBC '69 Camaro

Things just keep going wrong, creating delays. On Monday I heard something in the valvetrain. I had the shop that built the engine order a couple small parts. They showed up Wednesday. They were wrong. On Thursday they were supposed to ship the correct parts for delivery Friday. They forgot. So today I finally get the parts and get it running. I need to get it above 150 degrees so it will go in closed loop mode and the ECU will start making adjustments. As soon as it got above 150, it started running much better. Engine temps are good. It was 100 today and it ran about 170. I didn't turn the fans on until it got to 180. Now that it ran for about 30 minutes, I have an oil leak or two. I'll work on that tomorrow. Here's a video from today. :beers:

Nice. What were you hearing in the valvetrain?

Just a loud clatter as opposed to the nice sound similar to a sewing machine.

Nothing as satisfying as the sound of a solid roller valve train.....

I run the Crower Severe-Duty Cutaway solid rollers. Nowhere near the cam specs you have, but we wanted 7,000+ RPM for the nitrous..... split personality engine, able to pass emissions for street driving, plus a 300-shot

Re: F2 427SBC '69 Camaro

Finally got the car tuned today It did not make the power it should yet because of two constraints. First is no intercooler. The car will have an intercooler after the chassis work is done. Any intercooler I do now would need to be done again when the strut front and big tire back half are completed. The second is the boost. When the kit arrived I ran the numbers on the pulley's and I was afraid that the Procharger would be building too much boost down low, and it is. Anyway, here is the video. At the beginning the tuner is just loading the car and checking the response. Because I only had a start up tune it blew all kinds of crap out of the exhaust when he first whacked the throttle. The pulls at the end didn't do that. The first dyno run happened around 2PM in Sacramento, it was 95 degrees at that time. Without the methanol the intake temps were 230. This wasn't on a full pull, it was a preliminary no load pull. With the twin nozzle meth system it dropped the temps to 190. Still high. With 14 degrees of timing it made 700RWHP on a Mustang dyno. The dyno chart is from the first pull with 9 degrees of timing.
