New guy with a 66 SS
New guy here checking in here, im from wisconsin, but am right on the illinois wisconsin boarder, i am in the navy and currently working at the great lakes naval training station in the chicago area. i am going to be needing some help with building this car as far as questions and what not go and some advice as well. so here are a couple of my questions
first off is that i got my 1966 impala ss #'s matching, currently is what i believe to be a 327 275hp engine, the reason why i say believe is there is a 327 325hp air cleaner on the car, very possible its not the original air cleaner and from a different car, what are the ways i can tell if its the 275hp or 325hp engine? also what are the heads that came on the 275hp engine, i have a chance to pick up a set of 66 2.02 heads that need rebuilt for $100 maybe a little less and want to know how much of an improvement over the heads currently on the motor they would be.
