Hi all..

Just wanted to introduce myself.

I'm currently working on a 4th gen camaro, doing all the sheetmetal by myself, since the only investment required is steel, time and tools.

I cruise a lot of forums, but most of the camaro guys are addicted to a 383, turbos and superchargers. I don't dislike those combos, but there's got to be more to engine choices than that..

When it comes time, I may actually go with a 383, but I want to explore all my options, motor wise. Very Happy

372" with 4.125" bore is on the bench for either Super or TurboCharged coming soon.(I hope)
After seeing Clay's #s I am trying to fit the turbos! Very Happy
I feel and have seen were the bigger bore is the beter choice when squeezzed.( sorry Jon Smile )

Welcome to the site. I am a proponent of big cubes. Bigger is better in my opinion and solves a lot issues except traction (or paying for my obsession with big inch motors).
