    THEN my sort of uncle designs the heads for a GM nitro dragster. He is able to get crate engines at crazy cheap prices (considered it for a swap before deciding to go the wrecker route). The current car is also sponsored by skoal (bleck)

    Have you ever considered forced induction for your Slowmaro?

    If you are able to modify fuel injections maps on your car then an import wouldn't be hard for you at all. The subaru 2.5 liter turbo engine is pretty interesting. It even won international engine of the year (all makes/models/types and countries) for 2.0 to 2.5 liters

    What year of car will you build the engine swap as? Wont you have to change the other emission equipment to match the engine spec? (Im used to ****ing carb requirements)
    Well it would be different if I was going to put in say a 383, since they were never offered for the Camaro in 87. Since however, I am going from a 305 to a 350, and since 305s were available in 87s, I am good to go as long as I retain all the original smog equipment. If I wanted to put a modern LS1 in there then I would have to take it to a smog ref and it just gets to be crazy California BS from there on.

    They don't seem to care if a new engine runs cleaner then the older one...

    Anyway, it is very easy to pass smog as long as your car has a good cat, and proper fuel control. As long as the car is in closed loop status (going rich, lean, rich, lean, etc..) then the emissions out the tail pipe will be very low.

    I might put a super charger on the Camaro sometime in the future, but I will wait and see.

    Also, sounds like you have some cool family! I'm trying to think... Skoal is Prudhomme's team... which driver?

    Ohhhhh

    Yeah we plan to go pretty much stock. It will be FAR better than the 230 cubic inch it has. I swear the thing only has about 100hp and only gets 12mpg. The plan is fast and reliable.

    I have no idea. Honestly I have little interest in that side of motorsports. I get invited to stuff and I mostly go to see the cars worked on in the back. Rally is my thing.

Anyone can spend a bunch of money and pay someone else to do it, but when you put the wrench time in yourself, it is much more special.

    Hey that's a hot roc you got there.. It looks familiar, too. Well, the seats, really. Did you post about them on TGO a while back?

    What's TGO?

    Scream: I like everything about the car except the stearing wheel. What type of rockers are those? Have you considered heat wrapping or ceramic coating the headers?

    TGO is a website for owners of third gen f bodys. (82-92 Camaro's and Firebirds)

    The rockers are comp cams and 1.5s... The headers I got from Jet Hot, so they are already coated.

    You drive a french car?

    Why not buy a container of touch up paint from the dealer and fill the chip yourself?
