Drag Racing Tech - 8 second build and 67 Camaro build
08-20-2012, 10:11 PM
I figured i have enough parts to start alittle build thread with two cars with totally different goals i have so here we are.
First car is a 98 Camaro that over the years has had 4 different motor set-ups and has been my baby since high school. Last motor was a ls3 with a Tsp cam and milled heads the car ran really good running 104 mph traps on motor and 113mph on a 150hit. I drove it to the track and home. A year ago it broke a rod and i have been figuring out my next build and buying parts off ls1tech to get it where i wanted.
My goals with this car will be to run low 9's and drive it home.
Second car is actually a family car that me,pops and my sister will be enjoying. 67 Camaro that has a 355 with a 4 speed. We where happy with the car until one weekend i went to a car show that was 60 miles away and it got really annoying with the 4 speed revving high and running 65 down the interstate and to put the icing on the cake i got out ran by a 91 gt with a cam on the way home.

90% of the parts on these cars have been bought here on ls1tech.
As i started looking for another motor for my 98 Car as the Ls3 block was bad when the rod came apart i ran acrossed a add for a 408 on here, a deal was made with this member and i went and picked this motor up. As i was refreshing this motor it was decided this would not be the 98 cars motor i would put it in the 67 as i wanted to go faster with the 98 car. Well at that time i had seen another members car had got burned with the exact setup i was looking for the 98 Car.

What do you guys think?

How much weight are you going to drop out of the 67? Whats your idea of a street car? Lastly how much power are you looking at making?
08-21-2012, 03:25 PM
Well the Trickflow headed motor made 686 hp on the engine dyno. And the Ls3 headed motor made 598 hp. Street car means I can jump in the car drive to a car show or to the track and drive home. And once a year I go to the Turkey Rod in Daytona and cruise the streets all weekend long without it breaking down.

I will evently spray 300 on the Trickflow motor and 200 on the Ls3 motor.
08-21-2012, 04:07 PM
Possible with both motors, cut some weight to really make it quick

I really have no goals with the 67 except to make it a nice cruiser. But I've been mid 6's in the 1/8 at 113mph in the black car so with 250 extra hp it should get down.
