So I wanted to build a new engine for my IROC. The goal is 500/500 at the tire. Built a 379 and morphed current ECM into it. Added a trigger with COP, and current CNC heads with elbow and EFI components. I dyno'd it, now putting it in the car with a new Holley HP system and headed to a Mainline chassis dyno. Not your traditional SBC, EFI engine. Very different!
Chad I bet the torque curve will great between 2500 -4000 rpm. I know you did not build for mpg. but would not be shocked if its a lot better than you think. Maybe 20 mpg.
And i'm over here with an LS with a carb.. Exact opposite, still works great!
I started the pull at 4000!
Putting a LS in my 3rd Gen wasn't an option. I was going to put the 4150 style throttle body on it but I like the look of the factory air cleaner system of these cars.
HAVE THEY CALLED US YET ? THEY HAVE!!!
Can you hide the coil packs then add a small belt with charger down low. I am just ragging you. You know how much I like your work. I send people to you. I say he is not like everyone else he likes his stuff to look not just clean but factory. Will it carve some fast curves too? With heat and C of course. I am possible digging my old malibu wagon out need to put it back as shop truck hauling empty trailers and etc.
Chad, where did you get the elbow on that intake?
Thanks for sending them my way!
