Hey good to be on board.
Not real easy to figure out what is what on these forums but I'll figure it out.
Just to answer one question about the third pedal.
Well I bought an engine and trany together and at first I was going to keep the standard shift but just thought I'd like the Automatic better. Figured the trany came with the engine so why not use it. Anyone need a pedal?
The engine 350 and trany TH350 came out of a 77 Monte Carlo from what the numbers tell me. I bought this it was sittin on the ground for like 7 years.
I've since have rebuilt the engine and added a few HP parts but nothing wild.
I've upgraded the cam as well as the intake manifold and carb.
By the way this is my very first engine build so I hope all go's well.
The cam I used is a speedpro CS1169R along with new springs which are 943's for greater lift. The intake is an Edelbrock performer and carb to match 1406 600 cfm.
Most of this has little meaning to me other than I know it's better then what it was.
I am learnig though, very much so.
Now I am looking for possibly a set of center dump or ram horn manifolds. I've heard them called either. Anybody have some layin round?
This I want cuz I want to try and keep the stock look of the early 60's 327. No one will know but me it's a 350ci and 300 hp.
Anyway, time for bed. I'll be back in the AM with a couple of questions.
Hope you all can help with definite answers. Other sources I've went to no one had a sure answer or I've been ill informed.
Now I've found this IMPALA site I'm certain I will find the answers here Right??
Thanks for the welcome and look forward to sharring what I have with you all.
