    so i decided for sure what car i want. im gonna get a 79-81 camaro z28

    i wanna do a 383 stroker, valvetrain, tbi heads, 750 demon carb, high compression pistons, pretty much forged everything, l98 vette cam, headers+cat back, ram air and likely a 400turbo tranny

    thoughts, ideas? this will be a first build for me, i have the people to teach me, a place to do it and the tools needed all at my access. all i need is the money saved for this fall.

  2. The L98 cam was good when it was new, today you can get much better grinds from the aftermarket. Also, any tbi head won't flow anywhere near even the cheapest aftermarket head. If you're looking for budget heads, use the GM vortec heads, they're great. You'll either need a vortec intake, or to modify one you already have.

  4. summitracing.com has pretty much everything. Finding things on their site is a bit tough unless you have part numbers though. Either call them or request a catalog online.
