Just drove my 68 camaro for the first time in about 5 years. My son and I have been working on restoring it(frame off rotissery) We added a bunch of options(basically has everything except power windows) We built a 383 with Edelbrock performer rpm heads, manifold, Holley carb, headers and 2.5" exhaust. It has a 4.11 posi and T-400 trans. I have been trying to get the DMV to let me put the original plates back on the car and was finally successful this week. Soooo I went for a joy ride to see what this thing was going to run like, and I think the grin on my face went from ear to ear. It pretty much spins through first and half way through second before it hooks. Very fun and pulls strong. This is going to be a great street car.

ok, there are 2 ways to add an image..

The first way is to attach it. When you create a post, there is a box on the bottom that says "ADD ATTACHMENT" with a BROWSE function above it. Use the BROWSE function to locate the pictures (one at a time) and once you found the picture, click on it. Then you click on ADD ATTACHMENT and submit your post and the picture will be attached.
Another way is to host your picture on the internet and then use the IMG tags [img.]http://www.picturehost.com/picturename.jpg[/img.] (without the . after img and /img)
the http://www.picturehost.com/picturename.jpg will have to be replaced with the actual filename on the internet.
You can use a free hosting service like:

http://www.imageshack.us

to host the pictures. After hosting a picture, imageshack will give you the direct link to the image. Copy and paste that url (http://xxxxx) and paste it between the img tags and your pic will show up..

A little update. The oil pressure has gradually been getting worse, so I pulled the engine and the turned down cast GM 400 crank is flexing so bad the #4 and 5 mains are wasted, also 4.11 gears with a stock oil pan on the freeway is not a good combo, as I think it sucks the pan dry and or the windage is whipping the oil into foam. Other than that it ran pretty good. I had a zz4 short block with the factory roller cam, so I put the Edelbrock top end on that one and put it in the car. It doesnt have as much power with less cubes and quite a bit smaller cam, but it runs good. Just curious how much stronger an after market cast crank is. I may just replace the crank and put the 383 back together. Does anyone have the specs on the fast burn 385 cam? That is actually where this zz4 short block came from.
