I'm interested in building a 350 which will have good (doesn't have to be
great) perfomance off the line but which will also handle constant speeds in
the 90-100 MPH range without problem. I understand there must be some
give-and-take with the rearend but am wondering what the best setup would be
for the engine and trans. Also, please enlighten me to the best method(s)
for having a solid power stroke from say 60MPH to 100MPH (blower, nitrous,
etc...). Of course I'd also like to build an engine that will last a good
long time. (Is all this even possible?)
Any hints as to the vehicle? Weight? Gearing?
Is this for a circle track application? Street?
You might get more specifics if you gave us that.
Otherwise, any stock 350 bolted to a go-kart oughta
pull pretty good in the 60-100 range. ;)
Actually I do not yet have the vehicle although we're almost certainly
looking at a 1979-1988 Camaro. This will be strictly a street machine (no
racing) and a interstate cruiser (yes I like to drive fast on the freeway!)
I would think the gears would eventually be in the 3:23/3:42 area. Thanks.
