Question about 1983 Chevrolet Camaro
I NEED SOME HELP hear me out. my first motor was a 350 bored .30 over.my cam was a .280 .480 comp. and it was hydrolicl. I hade stock headsand a 750 edelbrock. with this combo i ran 14.00 flat. with a tranythat laged a little. and a 308 gear. in a 1983 camaro. okay. so iwanted to go a little faster. so i bought dart 200cc heads 64cc chamberwith a 750 demon and a new trany. i went with a cam that lift was .525or so and .280 deration. now it ran good but i know that i am missingpower some where. that cam went flat. so i put my old circle track camin there. now get this i ran a 13.80. : ( now i think that it was camthat put me there. I think the cam is to much higher rpm. and thatscwrewed me at the start. on the streets im lucky to even get the thingto spin the tires. the car sounds mean. like really mean. but i cantshow for it. i should be in the 12 with the money i put in this car.
Lower the rearend gear ratio to at least 3:73 this will help alot on the low end.If you run 1/8 mile you could go to 3:90 or 4:11. Just watch your rpm.
